Where Do You Draw the Line on User Comments? - Managing User Comments
(Page 4 of 4 )
When you add comments to your site, you will usually do so through a program thatís already enabled on your site or a program that youíve downloaded to work on the site. In many cases, youíll have a management screen where youíll be able to view all your comments at one time (the Moveable Type management screen is pictured below). This makes it very easy to read over whatís there and select the right comments for inclusion or deletion.
With some programs, you can even set your program up to send you e-mail notification every time your site receives a comment. This way, you donít even have to visit your site to see whatís being said.
Where do you draw the line on user comments? No matter how come-as-you-are your site may be, and even though you may happily support the right of free speech, there are still certain parameters youíll want to maintain. A comment should not be included on your site if it is capable of largely offending or alienating a user or group of users on your site (or anywhere else in the world). Remember, you never know whoís reading -- but you want to be sure your site maintains a certain level of respect for all.
