As the community participates in the E7 blog, we want to offer some guidelines on how we are going handle comments in general. Our primary goal is for this to be a place for open discussion about Windows Engineering, so we don’t want to have lots of overhead and process.
We love comments. We know everyone on the Windows team will be watching for comments and is looking forward to the dialog. We will work to make sure that Microsoft employees represents themselves as such, especially if they work on Windows.
Things we want to see in comments:
- Lots of good interesting responses on Windows and the posts on E7Blog
- Keep it on topic
- Keep it respectful
- Keep it fun
Things that will get comments edited/deleted:
Offensive or abusive language or behavior
Misrepresentation (i.e., claiming to be somebody you’re not) – if you don’t want to use your real name, that’s fine, as long as your “handle” isn’t offensive, abusive, or misrepresentative
Blog-spam of any kind
We hope these rules will keep the discussion lively and on topic.
Steven and Jon
