Comment policy

If your comment displeases me, I may let you know or I may just delete it. I will close comments on a post the second I start finding it hard to look at them, when I don’t have time for the discussion, and so on.

A non-exhaustive list of things that displease me:

  • *-ist stuff (sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic…)
  • unsolicited advice, especially from people who barely know me
  • grepping rants: ie, “you mentioned some programming language in passing, let me rant about why I hate that language!” (take it to your own blog)
  • bringing fights with other people into my comments

Stuff that’s likely to please me:

  • inclusive humour
  • affirmative kindness
  • interesting disagreement
  • sparkling wit
