No one wants to be the thought police. But having a comment moderation policy can protect you from trolls and make comment moderation easier.
A comment policy is a set of rules or guidelines for users who interact with your blog posts. These rules can help you resolve issues with questionable comment content quickly and judiciously.
Stefanie Flaxman provides four categories of information to help you write your first blog comment policy:
- The purpose of your comment policy
- The type of communication you would like to see
- The type of communication you won’t allow
- Additional rules to protect your business and the community you are building
