Every so often, I start writing a formal comment policy and it seems to wind up on the back burner. A few years ago, I decided to have comments approved before being published on Mortgage Porter due to some very spammy, self-promotional comments that mortgage lenders were leaving. I welcome comments on my blog…but I will not tolerate spam, self-promotional comments or anything vulgar.
I reserve the right to edit comments if needed…typically this would be removing self-promotional. You do not need to add your url or titles–please use the links provided in your signature line of the comment for that. I may be adding advertising to this blog in the future and if you're interested in paying me to promote yourself, let me know.
I reserve the right to delete comments that are pure spam and that add no value to the conversation or that are vulgar.
In addition, as everything on this blog is my content, I will not tolerate plagiarism. If you wish to refer to my content or use an excerpt from one of my post, I'm flattered, just do so with a link back and proper credit to me. This blog and all content (text, photos, videos, etc.) is protected by US Copyright.
I've been writing Mortgage Porter since late 2006 and it's become a wonderful way for me to connect with readers and to work with new clients who are seeking a mortgage for a home in Washington State.
Bottom line, I would love for this blog to be a place for discussion and conversation. If you have questions, please contact me.
Be nice and we'll all get along.
