Tricks and tips, practical advice and good manners for commenting on blog posts

Saadia Iqbal's picture

• A fundamental principle: think about your target audience.

• Before submitting a question, ensure that it is relevant to the topic of the post …

• Use block capitals only when necessary. BLOCK CAPITALS GIVE THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU ARE SHOUTING and discourage people from responding.

• Use your real name and avoid posting anonymous comments

• When you respond to another comment, it may be useful to quote a portion of the original text to facilitate comprehension.
