One of the great things about on-line publications of articles that concern the authors ideas or opinion, share information, spread news and promoting quality is that the readers can agree/disagree, discus further and request for more specific info about something. You can’t do this on newspapers or the TV, but you can do it on the internet and you can do it on this website.
To this day it worked perfectly and we accepted every opinion about everything mentioned here. We always tried to offer answers to comments that were questioning something and we liked to discus things further with people that sometimes know much more than us like the developers of an application discussed or the artist of a theme etc.
The comments section of every article on this website was something we were really proud of as many eminent and unknown developers, sick and healthy thinking users, newbies and experienced users, have-a-life and doesn’t-have-a-life people met here and exchanged opinions in a well mannered way. Even when things got out of hand a few times we didn’t say or do anything as this is a natural part of the case.
Lately we noticed a few people coming here screaming that Gnome sucks and everyone here is just an idiot. Ok, we accepted that for a few days but now it has gotten completely out of hand so we are forced to start deleting comments. I never imagined I would have to delete comments after three months of WoGue’s existence but it seems that we have no other choice.
Expressing your opinion is perfectly fine and you can also use harsh language here if you want but we won’t accept any more direct insults to us, other readers and developers through the comment section. The comment section will stay clean of swearing, serving a useful purpose for everyone again.
Because we believe that people might change at some point in the future, we decided not to ban any IPs at the time. Every comment that contains any kind of attacking/insulting swearing, excessive irony etc will be instantly deleted :)
