TechAtLast Discussion & Comment Policy
We take precaution of what user submitted for publication on TechAtLast by making sure all approved comments are authored by the submitter. We do not allow copied content from around the web, neither do we regard automated comments.
As we’re striving to provide the best of the best contents for our user base, we’d like to address one embarrassing issue which has been going on lately in our community that tends to demote our dear platform from the search engine.
We’ve stressed so many time how much we’ve appreciated your comments in the past and we are not relenting in our efforts to put our users first at all times.
In our wake to address pressing issue that has been reducing the level of engagement on our portal, we’ll updating the user comment guidelines to prevent abuse and spam comments.
In a simple, yet straight-forward line of text, I will be explaining the kind of behaviour that we are expecting from all commenters on this portal. Anyone caught not following these guidelines will be banned totally from using our portal.
By commenting on TechAtLast, you agree to abide by the rules and regulations in this comment policy (dated April 13, 2013).
You will submit thematic comment
Any kind of comment with little or no relevance to the topic discussed will be deleted. If you’re involved in regular posting of unthematic content on this blog, we’ll soon catch up with you and get you off our portal. We want to increase real human activities, not publishing bot-inspired-content which has been automated to be published all over the web.
Keyword usage is a “No No” (No use of Keywords in Author box)
When commenting here, make sure your real names or nickname are used. We won’t allow keywords in your names. And if you try to be smarter than you could ever think of by gaming the system with “targeted keyword-like-nicknames” as author name, we will delete your comment and ban all your credentials against other time.
And you know what that means, you are no longer allowed to comment on any of our web pages because we’d block your IPs.
You will not include external links inside content
Recommending external links to high quality web resources is a good practice if the links are relevant to the topic discussed. However, smartly linking to your own website or articles without any benefit to our awesome tribe will be frowned upon.
