[sticky post]This Blog Is Now Moderated By The Iron Fist of Elizabeth Bennet

Rules for Anchorites Moderation Policy. Learn It. Love It. Live It.Collapse )

I've had a lot of fun reading your blog over the past couple years. I'm sorry that there have been enough assholes that you had to put moderation rules in place but I really like your detailed list of everything.

I also adore your subject line.

This seems sane to me, and I am very sorry that it has come to this. Still, what you say makes sense, give the audience growth.

I will be sticking around, and look forward to reading more from you!

Sorry that you must expend energy on enforcing stricter moderation, but I can totally see why. And I love the frame, as my default icon would suggest.

I'm sorry that it's come to this. I've always felt that whether a journal was public or not, people should respect the space, but since I've been on the interwebz forever, I also know that some people get immense pleasure from being assholes.

Until last week, I [am] surprised to say I didn't realize the lows the internet could sink to.

This makes sense as a policy. Some people simply go online to play the bully instead of trying to do something worthwhile in real life.

There's no reason to tolerate them bringing down the blog for you and everyone else.

Principles and Ethics of Moderation

I and my cobloggers put quite a bit of thought into this when we published our commenting policy in 2006, using examples elsewhere that we found compelling and repurposing them to fit our own zeitgeist. Our comments policy has had only the super-finest of fine-tuning since. In case it's useful, I offer up this link: Hoyden About Town | Comments Policy

Miss Bennett disapproves of spammers, surely?

Hi again, and sorry again to use your blog in this way - I have no other option. Still waiting for any contact re the ebook I paid for two months ago. My future purchase and endorsement of your writing depends on this, and the experience has already become more difficult and tiresome for me than it should have been.

Can you email me directly at my first name at gmail with all the details, please?

Dear Catherynne M. Valente,

I've taken the liberty of mentioning one of your books in my blog which you can find by going to NotesFromABearsJourney.blogspot.com/2015/09/imagination.html...

As always, I attempt to give the proper links and credits, but am open to criticisms, corrections, and suggestions.

And as with other mentioned authors, I wish you continued success in your efforts to expand the frontiers of writing. Your encouragement to young and old, black and blue, human and droid, is duly noted and applauded. Keep it up!

Michael Martin


I just now read "the Quidnunx" in Apex magazine. After a long time got lost in the story. Had a memorable experience.

thanks & regards,
