Heard back from the online team. We’re going to enforce the HayWord policy regarding personal attacks via a user ban. If you violate the policy and post a personal attack on another user, you will be barred from participating in the comments on the site, indefinitely. This will be your only warning.
Just don’t do it!
One more time, here’s our Blog policy: While The HayWord welcomes lively discussion and tough criticism, personal attacks on writers or other readers are not allowed. Spam, obscene language, personal attacks or abusive hate speech are not allowed. You may not pose as another person when posting. Violators are subject to a ban. We recommend that posters to The HayWord use their full names when posting, to keep this forum reliable and encourage constructive discussion.
