A Comment or Two on Comments
March 5, 2014 § Leave a comment
The official policy of The Better Chancery Practice Blog is to encourage comments. But there are some limitations, and that’s because this is a blog that intends to be a resource for lawyers and judges. It’s not a legal advice blog for laypeople, and it’s not a place to vent about the injustices of the world; there are plenty of web sites and blogs for that sort of thing. Not here, though.
With that in mind, here are some pointers:
- Your comment can be published anonymously, but only if I know who you are. That requires a valid email address and your identity. Two reasons for that: (1) I feel responsible for the content here; and (2) if you feel strongly enough about something to put words on the page, you should have the integrity to stand behind your words.
- Most comments I reject come from persons who are not legal professionals. Many ask basic questions about law or procedure that I can’t answer because the law prohibits me from giving legal advice. Others are critical of lawyers or the legal system, and this site is not intended to serve as a forum for that.
- Humor and enlightenment are always welcome, no matter who you are.
- Commercial comments are treated as spam, even if you are a provider of legal services or legal support services. This is not an advertisement site.
Once I approve a comment from you, your subsequent comments are approved by the system automatically, until I feel you need to back to being moderated, at which point I flip the switch. That hasn’t happened with anybody.
If you read a post and feel moved to offer an observation, an insight, a joke, a critique, a question, or a war story, don’t hold back. Just jump on in.
