Comment policy

The administrators of libraryhacker.org (currently Galen Charlton and Liz Rea) reserve the right to delete comments for any reason whatsoever. We will not edit comments except to deal with formatting problems or obviously broken links.

However, we are not going to be arbitrary.

The goal of this blog is to have an inclusive, open, and respectful discussion of all matters of concern to library hackers. That doesn’t mean you can’t be forthright about your opinions, but it does mean that you have to keep in mind that there are real human beings participating in the discussion.

Representatives of commercial firms are welcome to mention their products and services if they are relevant to the discussion. Irrelevant advertising and excessive puffery will be deleted, however.

The following types of comments will be deleted on sight:

  1. Anything that excludes members of the community. In particular, racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, or ableist comments will be deleted, and repeated offenses will get the commenter banned. Not sure whether your comment is objectionable? Think of this: we’re all in this together. All of us.
  2. Spam
  3. Astroturfing

Comments that are in reply to an obviously offensive comment may end up being deleted as well. Do not feed the troll.
