If you cannot or do not wish to abide by these rules please do us both a favor and sign up for a snark.blog account instead.
If you want to report a TOS violation please use the form and include as much information about the post as possible, or the ‘report post to admin’ button. I respond to TOS violation reports as swiftly and thoroughly as possible. And now, before you send in a complaint please read below about:
The types of comments we will delete.
If you post the phone numbers, addresses, or employment information of a commenter or topic, or instructions on how to find such information, the information will be removed on notification. GOMIBLOG users please note that if you publicly post anything about yourself that would help someone google your identity, I can not be held responsible. Think before you post anything that could lead back to your real name if you want to remain anonymous.
If you attempt to organize or participate in campaigns to interfere with anyone’s actual life (by emailing sponsors/companies, campaigning to deny them pageviews/income, or attempting to get authorities involved, announcing intent to attend events for the sole purpose of reporting back to GOMIBLOG, creating/promoting harassment social media accounts or behavior, etc etc) your comments will be removed on notification. GOMIBLOG is not a vigilante group or a stalking club and we neither condone nor tolerate people using GOMIBLOG for such purposes. Keep it to commentary.
If you threaten physical harm, mention stalking, or otherwise creep on bloggers discussed on GOMIBLOG or another GOMIBLOG commenter your comment will be deleted. This includes claiming your comments on their blogs or social media. Do not come brag on GOMIBLOG about commenting on their blog/social media or poking them via twitter/email, or whatever means you use to contact them. I can’t control what you do outside of GOMIBLOG but do not drag us into it. Going out and actually harassing people is not what we’re about so leave us out of it and take that sort of thing somewhere else.
If you want to advertise on GOMIBLOG please contact me to purchase ad space. Don’t try to use our traffic as free advertising to pimp your blog, your kickstarter, your charity drive, your forums, your facebook group, or your online store unless given express permission by GOMIBLOG or in the specified forum area. This includes creating deceptive user accounts in order to astroturf fake positive comments. If you post a link pimping your crap the post will be removed.
If you start threads about another GOMIBLOGer, the thread will be deleted. And if you come around to inform everyone of where else they can participate in anti-GOMIBLOGer crap, it will be deleted. I do not have time for inter-user drama, and there is no reason for it to clog up this forum. Nobody else cares about your grudge match. If you have an issue with a GOMIBLOGer take it to Private Message.
No discussion about minor children’s blogs, youtube, instagrams, twitters, facebooks, etc.
No speculation about someone’s sexual orientation or gender. If they want it discussed they’ll make it public. Until then, leave it alone. If you want to ‘out’ people or mock them for possibly being LGBT you need to go to elsewhere.
Do not copy entire posts from blogs to paste into the forum. Or any other content in its entirety for that matter. I know you don’t want to give people pageviews but please confine it to sharing only the excerpt that you wish you give commentary on. If you don’t want to give them a pageview just link to a google cached version of the url or something.
If you want to smear shit about some blogger’s sister/parents/ex-boyfriend/accountant/ex-boss/parole officer/ex’s new flame/friend’s current flame/whoever, please go elsewhere. Do not drag in every person some blogger has ever known and dissect their lives as well in order to advance your agenda.
If you have information to share privately just PM the users you want to share it with – do not post a tease about info you have and start a PM begging flood please. PM begging will be deleted because pages of ‘PM ME PLEASE’ is not interesting discussion.
And finally, do not post info from ancient background checks/public records or old offline gossip. 99% of unverifiable offline gossip isn’t true anyway, and there’s no rational reason to sit around doing necro record checks of someone just because they are on the internet. That just makes GOMIBLOG look like a bunch of crazy stalkers with personal vendettas. It is irrelevant if Becky was a b**** in high school or Susie got a DUI 10 years ago or Kristy had a secret first husband back in 1997. Please confine it to a private message or another forum.
If I find you violating any of these comment policies in fact or in spirit your account will be deleted. Period. There is no warning system or wrist slaps. You’re adults, you can read the comment policy; I should not have to constantly take time out of my life to remind you of the rules like it’s your first day of primary school. If you’re too stupid to follow the comment policy, you’re too stupid to be part of GOMIBLOG.
Types of comments we won’t delete.
Don’t ask us to delete a comment just because it hurt your feelings. We expect you to all be adults and handle your own battles. Unless the comment falls under one of the reasons above it will not be deleted.
If you are having comment or forum post regret do not bother to email asking for it to be removed. I am not your internet janitor and it is not my job to clean up whatever mess you created with your keyboard. Unless your comment falls under one of the reasons above it will not be deleted. Think about what you are posting before you hit submit, people!
