A few useful points, or even rules of thumb for participation here:
1) I get around 500 e-mails/day. Therefore, if you send e-mail:
a) it is mine, and I can do what I want to with it, post it, or not;
b) as much as I would like to, I cannot respond to everyone who writes;
c) know that I delete, unopened, all e-mail without a subject or without a subject that I recognize as being either interesting or relevant to what interests me;
d) don’t just send me to links without explanation;
e) please don’t ask me to do your homework.
2) Several things you might do will cause me to delete your comments or perhaps ban you from posting. Here are a few:
a) personal attacks on other commentators;
b) unreasonable attacks on Church authorities;
c) bashing legitimate and approved liturgical forms, traditional or post-Conciliar;
d) creating overly lengthy comments or pasting excerpts that are too long;
e) derailing the topics of entries by asking questions about unrelated issues, or trying to lead entries down what I call "rabbit holes", off-topic and usually pointless digressions;
f) posting without any kind of "handle" or name: a mere "anonymous" is not acceptable;
g) SHOUTING (typing all in CAPS);
h) being obtuse or, in my opinion, annoying.
i) generally creating more busy work for me.
