Dear Anonymous

Thank you for your recent comments. You have made me tackle something that has been sitting on my to-do list...

My comment policy.

This blog is a happy place. I am happy for people to have a different opinion than mine and I'd love you to share them.

There are kind ways to express your thoughts.

I will delete any comments that are rude, offensive, insulting or inflammatory.

I will not respond to these comments.

I will also not allow anyone to be rude to any of my readers or commenters.

My home, my rules.

Have a great day,

  1. I understand why you are taking this stance, I have a small group of people who love to leave hateful anonymous comments! So frustrating and rude! Good for you for taking a stand!

  4. GOOD ON YOU! Since actually writing down my comment policy and being very strict with it, I find the bad, hurtful comments do not concern me as much. I laugh and hit delete and forget about it. It really works! xxxx

  8. While I haven't had a purely nasty comment, I've had a couple of passive aggressive types that have left me quite bewildered. I'm not really sure why people make time in their day to be nasty. Surely there's more fun things to be doing. I could come up with at least three...

  9. Well said Rachel! I used to take it really personally when trolls would show up but lately I read the first couple of words & delete.

  10. What on EARTH could people find in your blog to be rude and nasty about? Gosh I wonder about some people's lives. Must be terribly miserable to resort to such things.

  12. It's one thing that 'anonymous' wants to be heard (by you) and another to feel entitled to a published comment.

  13. Congratulations on your zero tolerance. There is too much negativity and rudeness under the veil of online anonimity. I like to pay it forward with good and pleasant and distant myself from the negative and nasty. :-D
