Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and your interest in potentially participating in discussion via the comments facility or even getting in touch with me.
For the sake of myself and readers of my site, I’ve had to put some guidelines in place to ensure that the tone of the site remains intact, that people can find the information that they’re looking for without being distracted by inappropriate comments, and also that when a discussion is engaged in, that there are boundaries in place to ensure that there are limits to what will be tolerated and that it ultimately remains on topic.
For clarification, which you can read further about on my ‘about’ page or
details about working with me privately, it is important to note that I’m not a doctor anything and Baggage Reclaim, in terms of the content that I have written reflects my views and is for entertainment purposes only.
If for some reason you don’t like what I write, the opinions I express, that’s totally fine with me. There are a gazillion sites online for you to choose from and I’ve found that we vibe with the content that suits us. I appreciate you stopping by my site but please feel free to go elsewhere instead of posting nasty comments (they won’t be published anyway), or sending offensive emails.
I’m OK with criticism, but what I’m not OK with, is you crossing the line whether that’s making accusations or assertions you can’t back up, being nasty, or telling me how to run my site. Equally it’s OK for you to disagree with something that a reader has expressed in the comments, but be respectful.
With that in mind, here are the full guidelines:
Baggage Reclaim now operates a zero tolerance attitude towards people that misuse the site. This means that a clear misuse of the site will result in the IP address being blocked, and the misuse being reported to the ISP in question, plus anything of a serious nature will be referred to the police.
I welcome comments from readers and the facility is there to enable comment on the article in question. Don’t be random, don’t go off topic. All comments are solely the opinions of the individuals submitting them and the publication of them on baggagereclaim.co.uk(.com) does not imply endorsement or agreement by me or the site.
For clarification, off topic means that your comment doesn’t directly relate to the subject of the post. This also covers comments that are like personal conversations between yourself and another reader which distract from the thread and potentially may make it difficult for someone to feel that they can comment. It also covers you just sounding off as if you’re just spewing your thoughts wherever you land.
1. Please be fair while commenting. I love a bit of banter but don’t be aggressive towards other commenters or the author of the post.
2. The commenting facility is to comment about the subject of the post. If you respond to comments, stick to the subject matter. If you post a comment, please ensure that it is about the subject matter of the post. If you behave like this is a forum even though it’s not, it’s like basically showing up and loitering all over the ‘property’ putting your feet up on my coffee table and having random conversations while everyone else is having a focused discussion. This also means that comments where you demand that people reply to you or direct them to reply to all of their replies or where you basically imply or state that the person should comment and use the site in a manner that’s reflective of a forum, won’t be approved.
3. For ‘reader advice’ posts, please keep in mind that the person is looking for help and it is unhelpful if people hijack the thread and detract from this, not just for the person who posed the question, but also for other readers who are reading the site for support.
4. Don’t post anything you’re not prepared to hear an opposing opinion or you’re not prepared to hear something that doesn’t fit with your predetermined idea of what you want to hear.
5. Please refrain from making comments of a racist, prejudiced, or hateful nature. This is not the place to be making your views known about race, religion, skin colour or pretty much anything that can be deemed as defamatory. Please also don’t post comments of a violent or pornographic nature. Comments encouraging discussion about vengeful and even violent revenge acts will not be posted.
6. Spam is completely unacceptable. Please don’t use my commenting facility to promote you or your business/site etc. The link should be placed in the comments form where it’s indicated, not at the bottom of your comment.
7. Libelous, personal information must not be published anywhere on this site, including the comments box. Remember, I am based in the UK so please respect the laws. Don’t post copyrighted information and please ensure that the source is referenced if you quote and make sure that it’s a short quote/excerpt – respect the work of content creators!
8. I’m not going to publish hostile comments which basically cross the line from being an opinion to a personal attack. If you can’t respectfully disagree, don’t comment.
9. It is the right of people that read this site to be able to comment freely and leave their blog address if they so wish. It is unacceptable to leave this site and go to their blog to harass them.
10. It is a clear misuse of the site when someone uses multiple guises to comment under various names.
11. I reserve the right to withdraw or keep a comment on the site and my decision is final.
12. Abuse of the commenting facility will cause your IP address to be blocked.
13. All comments are the property of Baggage Reclaim. You put in the system, you gave it to me. (Thanks!) I will not delete comments at anyone’s request and ultimately it is my decision to do so.
14. Do not use the comments box for advertising – you need to pay for that. Anything that has even a whiff of advertising about it will be deleted or even added to the spam filter.
Still got a query about comments or want to troubleshoot why yours hasn’t appeared? Check out the commenting FAQ.
IP addresses are shown in the tracking statistics which tell me how many visitors the site is getting and how many pages are being read on the site. This also means that it clearly identifies users of the site that seek to misuse.
An IP address will be monitored if there appears to be suspicious activity.
- This can be repetitive refreshing of the page
- Malicious clicking on ads or pages.
