Let the Conversations Continue–But Please Don’t….

I have had to delete a number of comments because they contained references to specific companies. If you write about businesses (for profit or not) never name them. Use terms like “a big box store” or “a fast food restaurant,” etc.

I can allow mention of churches and denominations (etc.) so long as they are neutral or complimentary (not advertisements) or merely expressions of disagreement with some well-known doctrine or practice (e.g., baptism). But, in general, it’s safer to avoid using proper names.

I exempt myself from these rules (which I generally follow) because I know what risks I’m taking (if any). When you mention a business or individual in an uncomplimentary way I have no verification to fall back on should I be challenged for posting the comment here.

Thanks for your understanding.

    You could always just edit the comments to delete the proper name references instead of deleting the whole comments.

      Too time consuming–especially when there are many businesses named in a lengthy comment.
