Posting Guidelines and Why Comments Get Rejected

These are just a few of the reasons: profanity, not using capitalization and punctuation, telling us to get a life, rude comments, religious debates, "me too" comments, overly excited and full of capital letters and exclamation points, calling people names and being rude to another poster. Please do not address each other personally, especially in disagreements. Comments are to the blog in general. Using derogatory names for the Duggars may result in rejected comments. Ma and Pa Duggar have been used by several people lately and those likely will get rejected also.

Comments and prospective posts that discuss the show both pro and con are welcome and appreciated. Please just give them a once over to see that generally they follow normal grammar and spelling and add to the conversation. Too often we'll be reading a comment and just one sentence goes too far and gets it rejected. I also want to remind our gentle readers that we cannot edit comments. Our only choices are post and reject. So if there is one bit of bad in with a lot of good, it still will likely not go through. I do wish Blogger offered an edit feature.Thank you.

If you have questions about why a comment did not go through, please send the comment to one of the administators. We can not respond to you from comments sent through blogger.

Free Discussion, January, 2014

Please use this for Duggar and Bates sightings, speculation, or general discussion. Note that this is Duggar discussion not other families, TV shows, politics, religion, or personal stories. If the comment is more about you or some other issue than the actual Duggars or Bateses or other families seen on the show, please rethink before sending. Thank you!

Kindness Please

Please remember we do not discuss the blog on the blog or make the discussion personal.

Comments such as why do all of you....., this blog is gettting....., people do or don't ....., etc. will be rejected. You are free to to put forth your reasonable comments about the Duggars and their show but commenting about other readers or the blog is not what we are after. Please remember that the other commenters' opinions are as equally as vauable as your own unless they are ad hominem attacks or other unreasonable behavior. We try to keep those off the blog.

Please see the updated guidelines in the button on the right.
