Here are some simple ground rules for our conversation. We want a dialogue that encourages a respectful interchange.
So here is my comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following:
- You may comment without registering.
- You may post anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I may change this rule if it is abused.
- You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I would rather receive your comments on my blog than via e-mail. It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar e-mails.
- You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you disagree with me–or anyone else, for that matter–do so in a respectful way.
- I reserve the right to delete your comments. This is my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The First Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not mine. Specifically, I will delete your comments if something is posted that is, in my sole opinion, abusive, defamatory, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, false, offensive misleading, libelous, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of civility or any law, including intellectual property laws, or an attempt to advertise, solicit or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.
- You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.
- You grant me a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, nonexclusive, and royalty free. You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video or presentation.
In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this. (major portions of this policy reflect the work of Michael Hyatt found at MichaelHyatt.com)
