P.S. New posts are below this post.
Besides a person’s fashion sense, Comments are becoming another heated discussion.
Here’s a quick reminder about what comments will be allowed in future. Fashion related and only fashion related comments will be entertained. A long comment off-tangent with a view on fashion thrown in will not be allowed henceforth.
You may complain that in the past we have let comments of all kinds become part of the post. Well, over the next few days we will be revisiting all old posts and moderating those comments too. Next, you might say that we don’t follow the same rules for everyone. Our answer to that is that some discrepancies have occurred on posts because we (Priyanka and Payal)are two different individuals and sometimes we both have different views on what should be allowed and what not. End point is that, we both have agreed to a NEW standard and will be following it VERY strictly.
Why the sudden change? We have no choice to do so because as owners of the site we are also owners of the views expressed by the readers and that makes us liable. Having been served notice over comments received on some posts, we have no choice but to take a stance. We neither have the money nor the time to get lawyered up and fight defamation suits so we’d really appreciate it if you guys help us out with it. We maintain this blog for fun and for no other personal gain than the ‘hobby’ it presents itself as for us to indulge in.
Lastly, us explaining to every individual as to why their comment was not approved only takes time away from bringing new material to the rest of you. So, if your comment wasn’t approved, can we get the benefit of the doubt that either, we might have missed some of them because we had a large list to go over or because of the fact that something that sounds harmless to you may come of as offensive to another person. Also, sometimes a comment that was approved seems offensive to someone else. So as a rule, we uncomment both the new and the old one out. Either way, it is and will be our prerogative.
We get readers from all over the world and from all age groups and it is bound to happen that people have different views on things. So lets try and be respectful to other readers.
Recap of the rules. Going forward, comments containing the following will not be approved.
1. Botox, plastic surgery related.
2. A person’s body type. (‘Someone is fat’ is not acceptable, but you can say that ‘someone doesn’t dress well for their body type’)
3. A person’s personal life is off limits including a person’s conduct/gossip/rumors
4. A person’s religious beliefs or associations.
We will keep adding to the list as and when we encounter issues and will post this list as a separate tab as FAQ.
In the end, we appreciate all your support over the years and hope you understand our perspective. You make us want to keep writing and we hope to continue doing so.
