As we face into a new year of football action, it seems an opportune time to remind everyone about the rules on posting comments here on the blog.
People come and go on the blog and, with a new year just getting going, I’m aware that some newbies may not even realise that a comments policy exists for the blog. It does and you’ll find it here.
The house rules are largely self-explanatory. There’s the usual stuff about polite discourse generally, augmented by specific rules about types of comments that have been found to cause trouble down the years.
Pared down to its essentials, if you don’t pick fights with other contributors, steer clear of posting insulting comments about named individuals and are fair-minded in what you have to say about the performances of named players in matches, then the chances are that what you post in the comments will fall well within what’s acceptable from the point of view of the house rules.
There are, happily, no real problems to report on the comments front at the minute. Contributors are doing the bulk of the heavy lifting in this regard, by ensuring that what they post is fair and reasonable, which in turn has meant that the general tenor of the debate in the comments has been positive, constructive and informative.
Thanks to all of you for making this happen and here’s to another year of informed Mayo-related discussion in 2023.
