Posting Guidelines

Members of The Cardinal Nation blog community:

The comment areas of this website are intended for you to add your own remarks related to a specific post. I strongly encourage you to engage in intelligent discussion about the subject of the initial post with me and the other members.

To get in and post, you must first register. You can initiate that at the bottom of any post where it says “You must be logged in to post a comment”. Register using your email address and following your first approved comment, you may enter subsequent ones without moderation. This process is in place to minimize spamming, a sad reality of the internet today.

More information on “Registration, Passwords and Finding Stuff”.

When you do post, do not copy entire articles from other sites. A small excerpt is ok when either a link or proper attribution is provided with it. Quote properly and give credit where credit is due and you will be fine.


However…

…disagree with the comment, not the commenter. Should you personally attack a fellow member, your comment may be removed and your commenting privileges could be revoked without further warning. Same with swearing, racial slurs, violent threats, accusations of illegal activity such as steroids and hateful remarks directed toward anyone. Also taboo are userids that are offensive or assume the names of others as well as spam links directing members elsewhere.

Altering the spelling of inappropriate words, such as adding symbols and random letters to disguise the remark, will not keep the comment from being removed. If a member continues to behave in an improper manner, he or she will have their commenting privileges revoked permanently.

Stay clear of potentially explosive topics such as politics and religion, unless your religion is Cardinals baseball, that is!

I could go on, but hopefully you get the idea by now. Let’s just not go there, please…

If you have a question or concern, email me.

Brian Walton
