Rules for Commenting

Our rules for commenting are fairly simple. These are:

1. Valid email addresses – We need your email address so we can contact you in case we have some questions about your comments. Spamming? Tell us about that. We hate spam as much as you do. (More information? Please read our Privacy Policy. You may also visit SPAMWATCHERS for more information about spamming.)

2. Name – Commenters are required to enter their name so we or others know to whom they will sending their responses.

3. A comment is deleted if:

(a) It is a personal attack against us (obviously) or against another commenter/s. emanila is a community-based website where we hope to generate friendship and cooperation among our members and readers. Personal attacks therefore have no place in this website.

(b) It contains racist terms.

(c) It is worded so as to create an unpleasant controversy or negative reaction. Controversy may attract inbound site traffic, but we do not want negatively-driven traffic.

(d) It contains links to websites or webpages with no other intent than to advertise a website or a webpage including members’ webpages, brand, product or service. (For advertisements on this site, please contact us using the advertising link.)

(e) It is hateful, scurrilous, negative, offensive and obscene.

(f) It is not relevant to the topic of the post or to the post itself.

4. Since messages on the comments box are publicly displayed, if what you only want is to contact us, for example, technical support, please use the appropriate online Contact form. We are more than happy to entertain your queries and correspond with you.

*** One last thing, before you leave this page….

Please do not enter the text of your comments in ALLCAPS which in Internet means that the writer is “intense, belligerent, or combative in nature.” We consider ALLCAPS as a breach of netiquette. It’s like swearing which we do not tolerate in this website.

That’s about it.

We hope you will continue to enjoy a pleasant and productive interaction with other members and writers.
