So as I (hopefully) grow and develop my brand in the nutrition field, I hope to gain more online traffic. However, for anyone who has looked at online comments on various sites, there are douchebags out there with the goal of pissing everyone off, or promoting their own bullshit in areas that it’s not asked for. And, because of that, I want to moderate comments so as to help keep this a welcoming site for a majority of people. As the nature of any place where one person’s opinions are the only ones that really matter at the end of the day, some people might feel excluded by my rules. Fuck em, I say. If you’re not going to follow my rules and start shit posting, promote your essential oil MLM tomfoolery, or participate in discussion in a healthy manner, you can leave.
- No hate speech. This includes being homophobic, racist, sexist etc. I don’t want people to be scared away because they read the comments and saw that some dickshit posted about eugenics, politics not relating to food and/or nutrition, or other bullshit like that.
- No posting irrelevant promotions. I don’t want to hear about how some random car dealer has sales on certain dates, or assholes posting adware or viruses. If you have something cool nutrition or health related, feel free to post a link, but if I feel it looks sketchy, then it is gone (hint: if it looks like a bit.ly link or other abbreviated link, I automatically do not trust it). This also applies to nutritional supplements, or other “healthy” alternatives to some medications people take. Often, these statements are not regulated by the FDA, so I do not want people taking potentially harmful pills or skipping their meds because of this site.
- If you are unsure of the credibility of the site or article, do not post it. There is A LOT of false information on the internet, and I do not want people being persuaded because someone seemingly truthful lied to them. So do not lie, or give false information. I mean, there is a circle of Hell for this in The Inferno.
- I am the be all, end all here. I can add more rules, or remove rules, as I see fit. I can also delete comments that I feel do not fit. If a comment gets deleted, it is not a personal attack, it is me ensuring the quality of my site.
