Finding My Psych Community Comment Policy
We want you to feel at home when you engage with us on Finding My Psych. We don’t know what your home is like, but we know how we expect people to behave when they visit ours.
Our No. 1 house rule is simple: Don’t be a jerk.
Want to be the kind of participant we’d love to bring home to dinner? Here’s what we like to see:
Weigh in with smart, informed ideas when providing feedback.
Give us useful, constructive criticism. Spot a typo or an error? Let us know and we will correct it.
Demonstrate and share the intelligence, wisdom, and humor we know you possess.
Although we can’t be everywhere at once, here are some of the kinds of comments we’re going to do our best to curtail:
Promoting your own brand, product, or blog. So you’ve got a solution that will solve world poverty. Great! Send us a private email with your pitch.
Impersonating authors or other commenters. We can’t believe we have to say this, but: Don’t do that. It’s weird.
Comments that make it clear you know nothing about our site. Enraged that we didn’t mention X in a story about Y? Slow down. If you’d made it past paragraph two, you’d see a very well thought-out discussion of that X you hold so dear.
Comments that are completely out of left field. Sometimes discussions veer off a bit, but are still related to the original subject. That is fine.
Threats — no matter how vague. Nothing to say here. Just don’t do it!
Racism, sexism, homophobia, you get the drift. Not much to say on this one either – If you break this code of conduct, you will be immediately banned.
Trolling. If you’re just out for a good trolling and are not contributing meaningfully to the conversation, we’ll be pushing you back under the bridge.
