Comments policy: Play Nice

Moderation is enabled on comments at Otagosh. That basically means that if a comment:

*sheds more heat than light
*requires a detailed response from me over trivia (hey, there are only so many hours in the day)
*is in poor taste
*would cause unnecessary offence
*is off topic
*insults another commenter rather than addresses the issue
*pontificates based on a total misunderstanding/ignorance of the topic on which the comment is based
*or just plain doesn't seem appropriate

...then it will probably go into the trash. Judgement on these things is subjective, so while I'll try to be consistent, someone else may think differently.

Tough.

That said, comments are of course welcome. If it isn't angry, belligerent, irrelevant or insulting there's usually no problem.
