BlogNet Awards Comment Policy

The BlogNet Awards site is committed to encouraging all of our participants to create user comments to all of our blog owners who are nominated for the BlogNet Awards. As a result of our ongoing commitment, we have created a monthly comment contest, to help our readers become more aware of the different nominations, as well as giving our commenter’s an ability to get themselves known.

Our goal is to maintain a blog community where everyone can feel free to express their opinions, but we also recognize that some comments can descend into negative opinions, which might include negative sniping or personal attacks or even spam.

When this occurs, we reserve the right to delete those comments which violate our Comment policy which is described below.
