Comment and E-mail Policies

いらっしゃ~い! My name is Arria Cross, founder of Fujinsei.  I appreciate the time and effort my readers spend to send me e-mails, and of course, to comment on the posts on this blog. If you have any questions about the following policies, feel free to contact me.

Blog Commenting Policy

Here’s a fun fact about me.  I love getting new comments more than getting new subscribers.  If you’re my subscriber and you comment on my posts, I love you even more!  I encourage discussions on all posts in this blog, unless specifically stated otherwise.  However, there are some rules you need to follow.  By posting a comment anywhere on this blog, you agree to the following:

  1. Always be respectful.  Please don’t insult or pick fights with me or any of the authors writing for this blog, and also with other commenters.

  2. It’s perfectly acceptable to disagree with me or the other authors and commenters, but like I said in #1, please express your disagreement in a respectful manner. If you disagree with any of us, calmly state your reasons why. Focus on the material/opinion that you disagree with, but do not attack the person who wrote it.

  3. I welcome constructive criticisms. Don’t expect me, however, to agree with your criticisms and follow your suggestions. I do my best to act civil and respectful of your opinions, but if I ever feel threatened by you in any way, I have the right to take the necessary actions to cut our connections and report you to the appropriate authorities.

  4. I absolutely do NOT tolerate comments that are:
    ~rude, disrespectful, insulting, or derogatory
    ~racist, misogynistic, homophobic, or xenophobic
    ~spam or any comments that try to advertise one’s self, or products and services unrelated to the topic of discussion
    ~pornographic, violent, or dangerous
    ~utterly false and misleading
    ~abusive, bullying, harassing, slandering, libelous, or anything that violates the law

  5. Only one link per comment. My comment settings are strict. Any comment containing more than 1 link is automatically marked spam.

  6. When submitting links during the Fujinsei Blog Carnivals, please always read the rules carefully to avoid your submission from getting deleted.

  7. I’ll assume that you also live in a country that allows you freedom of speech and expression. This gives you the right to say whatever you want to say (as long as it’s not illegal) in YOUR blog, not on mine. This is why I reserve the right to delete comments that I don’t want in my blog, regardless of whether they’re harmless or not.

  8. You own any comments you post in this blog. You are responsible for the content of your comments. You relieve Fujinsei, me, and the other authors in this blog of any liability that may arise from your comments.

  9. Whenever you post a comment anywhere on this blog, you are granting me a royalty-free license to use it in any format. (e.g. quotes)

E-mail Policy

  1. Any personal information you provide me on e-mail via the Contact Form is private. Your e-mail is sent directly to my online mailbox and will only be visible to me, unless my e-mail account is hacked or breached. Read Privacy Policy for more information on how I handle any personal information you provide to this blog.

  2. Like the commenting policy above, please always be respectful when sending me an e-mail, especially if you wish me to respond. I NEVER tolerate abusive, offensive and threatening e-mails.  I will take the necessary actions to stop them, including reporting them to the appropriate authorities.

  3. I respect your privacy, but please be aware and understand that whenever you e-mail me, all of its content are mine to do as I please.  So please think twice before sending me any sensitive or personally-identifiable information about yourself, especially materials that violate the law.  I will not hesitate to hand over your e-mail and personal information if required by the law or ordered to do so by a court.

  4. Please allow a few days for a response to your e-mail. I do my best to reply as soon as I can, but sometimes e-mails get lost. If you are expecting me to reply and weeks have already passed since your first e-mail, you’re always welcome to send me another one.

  5. I may not reply, depending on the content of your e-mail and how I perceive it.
