What types of comments we will delete:
- If you threaten physical harm to another commenter or person, mention stalking or otherwise contacting a GOMI subject or commenter, or encourage anyone to harm others or themselves or contact advertisers, employers, family, or the topic of discussion or other commenters, your comment will be deleted. We will also not interfere with other commenters dressing you down for doing that, as we believe in the normalcy of most GOMI commenters and have faith in their ability to keep the comments of an appropriate tone.
- If you post the phone numbers, addresses, or employment information of a commenter or topic, the information will be redacted on request. Please note that if you publicly post anything about yourself that would help someone google your identity, I can not be held responsible. Think before you post anything that could lead back to your real name if you want to remain anonymous. I’m not going to clean up your comment regret and subsequent information provided by google if you decide to publicly post your twitter, instagram, or facebook information on GOMI.
- If you want to advertise on GOMI please go to our “Advertise” page and purchase ad space. Don’t try to use our traffic as free advertising to pimp your blog, your kickstarter, your charity drive, or your online store. People have started using GOMI comments and the forum to pimp their own shit and we are fed the up. We do not pay for servers so you can treat this website like Craigslist. From now on such posts will be treated to either exposure as a sock puppet and/or an instant redaction. If you continue doing it, you will be blocked from posting.
- If you attempt to organize or participate in campaigns to interfere with anyone’s actual life (by emailing sponsors/companies or attempting to get authorities involved, etc etc) your comments may be removed, and if you continue to use GOMI for that purpose after being told to stop your account will be deleted. And don’t go do those things and come brag about it on GOMI either. Nobody cares what you do on your own time, but keep it to commentary and snark on this site. If you want to get involved in take downs and shit like that there are other sites for such activities.
- If you start threads in order to whip up drama because you are butthurt over another GOMIer, the thread will be deleted. If you continue attempting to goad and incite, you’ll be blocked from posting. I do not have time for inter-ham drama, and there is no reason for your name calling and j’accuse-ing to clog up the forums. If you have an issue with a GOMIer, take it to Private Message. Nobody else cares about your grudge match.
What kinds of comments we won’t delete:
- Don’t ask us to delete a comment just because it hurt your feelings. We expect you to all be adults and handle your own battles.
- If you are having comment or forum post regret do not bother to email asking for it to be removed. We are not your internet janitor and it is not our job to clean up whatever mess you created with your keyboard. Unless your comment falls under one of the reasons above it will not be deleted. Think about what you are posting before you hit submit, people!
Contact us if:
- If you accidentally post under your real name or gravatar pulls an avatar you wish not exposed to the world, contact us and we will remove your identity from the comment. We encourage you to register to prevent such a thing happening by accident.
- Sometimes things go to spam for some reason. GOMI spam filter will send things with more than 3 urls and anything posted from an anonymizer ip to spam. If you post a comment and it doesn’t show, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will go approve it unless it violates any policy above.
