rule #6 is a blessing

A while back, we had some problems in the comments. Too much garbage. So we instituted some rules for comments. One that I’ve come to really appreciate is rule #6: we’ll censor you for any reason we want. Of course, in practice, it’s only been applied to a small handful of overly aggressive commenters.

But I’ve learned that Rule 6 is quite valuable beyond moderating comments. I’ve started blocking people on my Facebook feed, Twitter, and email. Once again, I’ve only done it a few times. Extremely negative and disruptive people are few in number. Blocking just a handful can radically change your environment.

So my advice to you all: Do you get too angry at people on Facebook? Just apply rule six. De-friend. Block. Delete. You’ll be better off.
