Blog Etiquette

A student asked me on Monday, "Mr. McGuire, are there rules for commenting?"

I replied, "there are no rules but there are expectations of etiquette." Needless to say, that took some explaining. So, here goes.

Commenting Etiquette

1. You can argue, but don't be argumentative.

2. You can disagree, but don't be disagreeable.

3. You can contradict, but do so cautiously.

4. You can compliment, but please do so sincerely.

5. If you want to complain, type it up, save it, but don't post it. If you still feel the same way a week later, type it up, save it, but don't post it . . .

6. Commenting about a comment is expected, but use consideration and kindness in your words.

7. Correct a comment once you become perfect. Until then, DON'T!

8. Use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Do this for yourself and for the reader.

9. Remember, the blogger (in this case, me) appreciates the effort it takes to comment.
