General

Selvador encourages comments from readers of our blog. Feel free to disagree so long as you’re able to do it constructively without being rude or obnoxious.

Comments are pre-moderated, so if it’s your first comment it may take some time to be approved.

If your comments are rude, obnoxious, or otherwise in violation of what we consider to be generally acceptable, your comments will be deleted.

Comments that don’t contribute to the conversation, are obviously spam, promotional in nature, or intended for back-link purposes will be deleted and the author banned from future commenting ability.

Please use your REAL first name and not a business name, blog name, or nickname when commenting. Failure to do so will cause your comment to be marked as spam, deleted, or edited to conform to these guidelines and will not be replied to. Please do not put your personal URL (website) in the comment text unless it directly contributes to the comment and/or the conversation taking place, as it will cause your comment to be marked as spam and deleted.

Selvador reserves the right to edit and/or remove any links included in a comment at our discretion. If we consider a link to be inappropriate, spammy, or otherwise offensive, it will be removed.

Comments that are, in the opinion of Selvador, placed for the sole purpose of gaining a back link will be deleted.

The following applies to all comments posted on selvador.com.

Selvador reserves the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. We also reserve the right to block access via IP address to anyone or group from commenting, or from accessing Selvador.com.

Links

Comments containing links are automatically held in moderation. Links that contribute to the conversation and are relevant to the topic will be allowed, but links that are blatantly self promotional without genuinely contributing to the conversation will be marked as spam and the comment will be immediately deleted.
