Commenting Policy

At Our Thoughts we aim to present opinions that are thought-provoking and intelligent. As such, we have implemented the following policies to help us maintain this goal. Please adhere to these guidelines when leaving a comment.

  1. Contrary opinions are welcome. Trolling is not. If you are going to post a comment contrary to what has been stated in a post’s thread, do not do so with an intent to defame the LDS church, Our Thoughts or any of the posters.
  2. No threadjacking. It is difficult to have an intelligent discussion that follows a logical flow if completely unrelated comments keep popping up.
  3. Avoid cyclical arguments. If you find you are repeating yourself, please stop. Cyclical arguments lead to discussions being between two or three people and discourages other comments.
  4. Please avoid personal attacks (i.e. ad hominem). If you don’t agree with an idea presented, address the idea, not the presenter.
  5. Please do not use Our Thoughts as your personal blog. Please see if you would like your own blog.
  6. Please refrain from using profane and vulgar language. The blog is “Our Thoughts” not “Outhouse”.
  7. Comments not adhering to the above guidelines will be deleted at the discretion of blog administrators. Repeat offenders may be put on moderation.
  8. All comments are prone to review and may be deleted at the discretion of blog administrators. This includes comments with no punctuation or capitalization.
  9. Additional policies may be implemented in the future.
