There has been a new page added to Jerri's Empty Nest...the Comments Policy page.
Unfortunately, due to a troll, it was necessary to set forth some guidelines for commenting on this blog. I hate that it became necessary to post actual guidelines but I found myself with no other recourse.
What is a troll? A troll is a person who attempts to "stir the pot" by posting comments that are extraneous, off-topic, or inflammatory. In the specific case of Jerri's Empty Nest...the trolling took the form of tagging serious, heart-felt posts as funny.
Why trolling? I honestly cannot tell you. I do not even pretend to understand a person who would take the time every day to read my blog and wait for a serious post to tag as "funny". Personally, I have too much on my plate to have that kind of time to try to annoy another person just for pleasure. It confounds me.
Please take a look at the new Comments Policy. For 99.999% of you, this won't apply and you can freely continue commenting as you have been. Each and every one of your comments is appreciated and valued!!
