Comments Policy

Just want to take a moment and touch on the topic of comments to make sure we’re all on the same page.

  • I love comments. Comments from the readership is just as important to the discussion as is the blog post. Bear that responsibility in mind.
  • Everyone is welcome to post relevant comments. Beginners to pros are all welcome, and I must insist that everyone have respect for individual milestones. (Ex: A 5K might be easy for a ten-time marahoner, but there’s no need to scoff and belittle the 5Ker. The 5K was a milestone to him/her.)
  • I don’t mind, and in fact rather encourage, placing links to relevant posts in the comments section with an explanation, but I certainly delete spam.
  • I don’t mind strong language, but delete mean or abusive comments.
  • The best comments are left in the spirit of fostering discussion, not to be self-serving. Spammy comments will be deleted.
  • I am not crazy about anonymous comments. If you believe in what you are saying enough to take the time to leave a comment, show that you have the personal strength to claim your comment by doing so. Online or blog identity is fine, but I find it rude to leave a comment without claiming it as your own.

Coments add to your own online profile, and represent who you are and what you stand for. Comment well, be as well-mannered as you would in a face-to-face conversation, and we’re all going to get along fine.
