Comments are both welcomed and encouraged on this blog. The goal of the blog is to build a community. We do that by not only coming together on the things we agree with, but also by being able to have an open discussion on things we don’t.
Although disagreements and sharing personal perspectives are encouraged, hate, rude comments, harassment, or personal attacks of any kind on anyone will not be tolerated in any fashion and will be immediately removed. This could result in potentially blocked from any further use or access to this website.
There is a difference between sharing your opinion and attacking someone else for theirs. If you would like to spread a message that is important to you, be a positive example of that message not a negative one.
We are not all supposed to have the same opinion, values, and perspectives, or acquire the same knowledge in life. What would even be the point of being on this planet and interacting with one another if we were all the same or had the same ideas?!
You don’t like when someone attacks you for your values or way of thinking so why attack someone else for theirs?
I understand that there is such a thing called freedom of speech, but this blog is not a country it is an individual moderated platform and there are rules to abide by if you want to be a part of it.
The intention for this community is for people to not only learn from one another but also to respect one another so we can come together. Coming together and respecting one another does not mean always agreeing with each other.
“We are all equal in the fact that we are all different. We are all the same in the fact that we will never be the same.” – C. JoyBell C.
“Tolerance only for those who agree with you is no tolerance at all.” – Ray Davis
“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.” – Laurence Sterne
“One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.” – Bryan H. McGill
Now that I got that lecture out of the way here a few more important points you must know before commenting on this blog.
- Privacy – Any comment that violates your privacy or someone else’s privacy by disclosing personal information in the comments including but not limited to email addresses, physical mail addresses, phone numbers etc. will be immediately deleted.
- Respect – As mentioned above, any comment that is deemed by TheRevolutionBlog.com or its authors to be rude, hateful, offensive, or inappropriate will be removed. No personal attacks or harassment of any kind will be tolerated. As stated above you are welcome to share a different opinion but not to attack anyone else while doing it. Failure to respect the community created by this blog can result in both removal of the comment and blocked access from the site.

Comments that look like spam will automatically in many cases be filtered out by the spam filter.

Also do not include more than one link in a comment or have a majority of your comments contain links.
