I have an account on a social media app called Vine. If you're interested, you can find me there under the name LisaLise.
Above is a screen shot of one of my vines. I added a red ring around part of the comments field because that's the focus of this post.
That little text is visible in every comments field on Vine.
It says: Say something nice.
I wish every comments field on every social media and blog had this little reminder to inspire every person to be thoughtful (or at least civil) when leaving a comment.
Unfortunately, some folks aren't the least bit civil when they leave comments. I get a few comments that fall into this category – almost all of which are to this particular post.
For the record:
It's ok to ask questions.
It's ok to disagree.
It's even ok to rant.
But those who leave a comment purely to insult will never be published on this blog.
Thankfully, the vast majority of comments to this blog do get published.
Have a great day, and do feel free to spread this little message:
