Many of us can get along well with others and play nice but for those who have trouble playing well with others, I find the need to post these policies.
IF YOU’RE A REGULAR COMMENTER OR A NEW MEMBER
If your comment fails to appear it may have been flagged by our moderators. So before reposting it multiple times or contacting us it possibly was flagged for spam or the reasons below.
OTHER REASONS YOUR COMMENTS WILL GET FLAGGED OR DELETED
Personal attacks against another commenter or the writer of the post/website. This can run from name calling to sentences which include the words “people like you”. This is regardless of what “side” you’re on.
THE BELOW THINGS WILL GET YOU BANNED WITHOUT EXCEPTION
Here at Pickled Barrel we will not think twice about banning someone. We will give a warning first. After that no exceptions you will be banned. We do have that power. It is our site our rules and definitely our decision. We don’t need anybody’s permission. What we say goes. We are not taking away your freedom of speech at all by banning you. Take your hate somewhere else. We don’t want it here.
FOR OUR DEAR SWEET REGULAR READERS
First of all, We love you!!!! Without you, we wouldn’t be Pickled Barrel. We really appreciate your love and support. If you see a commenter who is being abusive or hateful just simply flag them and move on. No need to argue with them it isn’t even worth your time or energy. It just gives a great big headache and stress that is not needed. Our moderators will see the flag and take it from there. This way there isn’t a long thread of hate and drama in the post.
