Comment Policy

I love comments! Comments create conversations, maintain and strengthen connections, and they’re a great way for me to find cool new stuff. I want to hear from you!

This blog is where I share my discoveries and thoughts about about Australia. Much of it is positive, some isn’t, and that should be okay. It’s also one way I keep in touch with family and friends. Because I want to foster an atmosphere that is welcoming and safe to everyone, I have developed the following working guidelines.

  1. Comments that are abusive, threatening, and hateful (including racist, sexist, ableist, sizeist, religiophobic, homophobic, and transphobic) will be removed.
  2. Profanity is not offensive to me unless it’s used as a weapon and some “bad words” are more acceptable than others. Please use good taste.
  3. Relevant links and signatures are okay. Spam and blatant advertising will be removed.
  4. A pattern of incivility, hostility and harassment, or unwillingness to respect the rules laid out here will result in a permanent ban from this site.
  5. I will respect your privacy and will not knowingly share your email address.
  6. If your comment falls into moderation I will get it out of moderation as quickly as possible.

I value diversity and welcome a variety of opinions. I also value hospitality. In that spirit, I ask that commenters post in good faith keeping in mind that this blog is like a home.
