Comment Guidelines

James MontemagnoJames Montemagno

Each blog post has comments that can be used for discussion, here are some quick guidelines:

Keep it civil aka don’t be a jerk and be awesome to everyone.
We’re going to get into the thick of a lot of heated discussions and that’s okay. These discussions often entail topics that we all personally care a lot about and will passionately defend. But in order for discussions to thrive here, we need to remember to criticize ideas, not people.

So, remember to avoid:

  • name-calling
  • ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content.
  • knee-jerk contradiction

Comments that we find to be hateful, inflammatory, or harassing may be removed. If you don’t have something nice to say about another user, don't say it. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.

Always strive to add value to every interaction and discussion you participate in
There are a lot of discussions that happen every day on Montemagno.com. Before joining in a discussion, browse through some of the most recent and active discussions happening in the community, especially if you’re new here.

If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

Keep it tidy
Help make moderators’ lives easier by taking a moment to ensure that what you’re about to post is in the right place. That means:

  • don’t post off-topic comments or discussions
  • don’t cross-post the same thing multiple times
  • check if another active discussion on your topic has already been posted

If you see something, say something
Moderators are at the forefront of combatting spam, mediating disputes and enforcing community guidelines and, so are you.

If you see an issue, contact the moderators if possible or flag any comments for review. If you believe someone has violated the Basic Rules, report it to Montemagno.com by flagging the user's profile.
