I have never thought of developing a community guideline until the lecture. All the comments I had received on my blog right now are possibly from my friends. However, I still hope that this blog page is open and welcoming.
From the lecture, there was a Ted talk about hate comments and I totally agree on talking back with the haters nicely and something else would come out of it. I noticed that most haters make comments due to the events that occurred to them and it is easy to release their emotions online with strangers (Konnikova, 2013). But I believe that it is unkind to do that to a stranger if they don’t know or even disrespect you.
The following Community guidelines had taken some examples from this link.
~ Treat others nice and kind as you treat someone in real life
~ Using comment or email respectively
~ Be tolerate of other’s views
~ Post personal information
~ Use bad language or insulting/offensive behaviours
If any of the guidelines are violated a warning would be given and the comments would be blocked.
In summary, the goal of this blog is to create a calming and open space for topics or discussions if possible. As my blog post is open for comments, I believe the guidelines written above would allow respect and keep the comment area nice and chill.
