I support free speech and tolerance for all, but a public playground like this needs stated behavior rules.
Be nice and don’t make it personal. This means if you malign anyone (or any group), or use hate/hurtful speech, I’ll delete your comment and possibly ban you.
Stay clear of politics or religion. Opinions/views on either these days just adds to flames.
You’re welcome to link to your site, Substack, book, etc., but only if relevant to the post/topic.
No spam or product selling period. Mentioning/linking to your book or published work is cool, if relevant to the topic/discussion.
As a new publication, I’d love to connect with other Substacks, but I have two reasons I keep in mind when evaluating a recommendation:
Your publication is active and you’re publishing regularly.
Your topic relates (at least somewhat) to what I think my audience would like, the sort of stuff I write about here, or if I think it’s interesting and cool.
