Unwelcome links to the commercial products and/or services of others are not accepted either.

Fake comments. We do our best to ban any form of spam, including but not limited to the use of fake comments. We know some find it tempting to attract the readers and advertisers by placing fake comments on websites, this being a common practice among editors and readers as well. We here think readers are perceptive and will notice this first or last. Everybody receives occasional comments in the form of “thanks for letting me know, that’s great” and other such similar comments – though we understand some people might be too busy to spend time writing their thoughts at leisure, we encourage everyone to write and discuss to the purpose, or otherwise leave no comment at all. You can always “like”, “share”, “pin” or “tweet” a post if you don’t have time to discuss a project.
