Sometimes some things need to be stated explicitly: I think Father Z has a lot of wisdom when it comes to comments policy for blogs. I’ll adopt those, especially the bit about rabbits. Laudie-dog eats rabbits for breakfast. The rabbits that can sometimes come to the hermitage comments box look more like rats. But Laudie-dog doesn’t mind that at all.
- a) personal attacks on other commentators;
- b) unreasonable attacks on Church authorities;
- c) bashing legitimate and approved liturgical forms, traditional or post-Conciliar;
- d) creating overly lengthy comments or pasting excerpts that are too long;
- e) derailing the topics of entries by asking questions about unrelated issues, or trying to lead entries down what I call “rabbit holes”, off-topic and usually pointless digressions;
- f) posting without any kind of “handle” or name: a mere “anonymous” is not acceptable;
- g) SHOUTING (typing all in CAPS);
- h) being obtuse or, in my opinion, annoying.
- i) generally creating more busy work for me.”
I would add that there there are many blogs out in the blogosphere. I welcome all here. But, if you really don’t like it here at all, and can do nothing but complain… I mean… — Hey! — you are free to go elsewhere. Particularly uninvited are trolls (even those who don’t think of themselves as such), even those who are in the Executive Office of the POTUS.
