Every blogger has their own rules about comments. One thing I should say up front is that all comments are subject to approval by me before they are posted. I am usually pretty open about comments, even posting those that I disagree with or which might point out a clear error I have made.
I do try to respond to most comments because I recognize that you have made the effort to comment, and I want to acknowledge that.
If your comment is not approved quickly it is probably because I am very busy. I have a life, a big one, and this blog, these posts, this work is not as important as my family and my paying job.
Things that will automatically disqualify you from having a comment approved include but are not limited to:
- Curse words and other vulgarities.
- Getting way off point.
- Questioning my fidelity to Jesus and His Church.
- Threatening me or my family’s welfare.
- Defending the New York Yankees.
Other than that, if I just don’t feel your comment advances any particular argument but your own desire to lambaste me, and/or if you make silly accusations which have nothing to do with the matter at hand, I won’t approve your comment. For example: if, in response to 2000+ words of researched writing your comment is something like: “This is socialist drivel,” I’m not going to approve your comment. Why would I?
Anyway, you can always e-mail me if you truly need to engage me: email@example.com
