Guest posting policies
Head nod to Times & Seasons for extensive borrowing of their comment policies. Don't consider this an exclusive list until we've thought of everything. We'll let you know when that happens.
1. Comments are expected to reflect different points of view. Be careful that critiques, if any, are of the argument or position, not the person. No insults please.
2. In general, Modern Mormon Men is a site for all types of mormons (irons rods*, liahonas*, various stages of activity), or for non-mormons who are willing to respect the values of the mormon church. Comments that suggest one or more of the groups mentioned above is unintelligent or uninformed are not welcome.
3. Despite the nod to Mad Men in the header, Modern Mormon Men is not in the advertising business. Feel free to plug something if it’s relevant to the post, but do not plug off-topic posts on other blogs, books, products, etcetera.
4. Like our posts, comments are expected to be intelligible. Keep acronyms to a minimum, proofread and spell check.
5. Violations of intellectual property laws will not be tolerated. Violations of other laws, including defamation and slander, will not be tolerated.
6. Comments that are excessively rude, graphic or offensive are unacceptable. Potty humor, while sometimes funny in person, is usually not welcome in comments. Please respect the contributors and readers of our blog.
7. These policies will be enforced by the blog co-founders. Enforcement could include any or all of the following - deleting comments, warning offenders and banning IP addresses.
8. These policies may be added to or modified at our discretion.
