I so welcome your comments. Please know that I’m super relational and I’m going to want to respond and engage with every one. But I’m not able to. Know that I appreciate hearing from you and love watching a conversation unfold. Please, come tell me about what you think, feel and want.
But play nice.
I’ve got a code of conduct I’d like you to know about and follow. I’m not looking to mess with freedom of speech or full self-expression- but I do require respect. Consider a comment feed on this site as though I’ve invited you into my back yard. Please don’t poop on my lawn. That’s gross. And offensive.
Comments I deem terrible will be deleted. Here’s a peek at what I mean…
1. No name calling. Not to me, other commenters or others in general. If there’s something you want to call out, find a courteous way to do it.
2. If you’ve got a criticism or critique, share it in a way that moves the conversation forward or opens something up. Intolerance, shaming or trolling of any kind is frowned upon. Trolls must leave.
3. When including a link, please ensure it’s relevant. Spammers will be deleted. So will tacky, shameless self-promotions that have nothing to do with what’s going on here. Salesmen can come in the backyard, but at least stay for a cup of tea.
4. You’re welcome to ask questions and spark engagement, but please don’t expect a response to inquiries in the comment section. If you have a question that needs a response, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ask me at Dear Chela.
While I’ve identified as a rebel, and have liked to push rules, I also think a clear and strong container creates deeper connection and better dialogue. Thanks for playing.
