Comment Policy

Unacceptable Comments and Trackbacks

Comments and trackbacks will deleted for any of the following reasons:

  • Insulting and name-calling
  • Profanity, such as swearing or sexual remarks
  • Don’t contribute any value to the post or to the other comments (short comments like “nice site, thanks!”, etc.)
  • Contains links to made-for-AdSense sites, splogs, or sites about illegal or adult subjects.
  • Any reason I feel like, really, but the first four are the biggies

Basically, if your comment further the discussion by adding new information or asking a question, it will stay. If your link or trackback builds on the post’s topic or challenges it in a civil manner, it will be allowed to stay. The more you do this, the more you are rewarded with outbound links from my blog to yours.

Comment Moderation

As a final barrier to spam or inappropriate comments (including paid comments), all comments and trackbacks from new users are moderated.  I normally check and approve comments and trackbacks at least once a day.  If you’ve left a comment and it hasn’t appeared, yet, I’ll get to it as soon as I can.

    There was also a flap shaped paper sticker issued to all registrants. There was a place to write in your name. I think Chi Sigma did the same thing the previous(?) year.
    I may be able to find a pic for you if you need.

  2. You had a “?500?” notation for the OA Handbook paperback edition Oct 4 1948. I have my father’s old edition, Printed by John J. Furlong & Sons, Charleston 12, S.C. and it shows “5000-10-48”, so there were 5000 copies printed of that edition. Just thought you’d like to know.
