Moderating Comments

Hi everyone! I just wanted to take a minute to explain why I monitor comments and may delete a comment off of Coupon Closet or Coupon Closet’s facebook page.

I moderate comments on my blog for basically one  reason and one reason only: to keep CouponCloset a positive and comfortable place for everyone to learn how to save money. Comments I deem to be rude or negative, questioning another commentor’s ethics, or  which appear to be left solely for the purpose of advertising will very likely be deleted. Yes, I know I might upset or offend many by deleting comments, however, it is important to me and to my readers to keep this a positive place. There is enough negativity in the world, that we all need one place where we can count on some positive uplifting information.

If I did not approve a comment or I deleted one of your comments on Facebook, and you think it was by mistake or would like an explanation,  please contact me here.

Thanks everyone for helping me continue to keep Coupon closet a place of inspiration and motivation so you can continue to be a better shopper.

    I agree. I have seen some sites where it just becomes plain mean toward one another instead of helpful. Thank you for doing this. It has helped my family tons!!!

  • Buffy Meiser -

    Thank you for doing this-there should not be negativity on a sight that promotes saving money in such an appropriate way!

    I have only been couponing for a couple of weeks and all that you do has been a HUGE blessing for our family!!! My husband is in the ministry and we are thankful to be a part of God’s work, but we do not make a lot of money. We also feed MANY of our students on Wed. before church, you cannot imagine what a blessing having so much food on hand for hungry teenagers for not a lot of money has been!!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!

    Whoa. That’s quite a mouthful, Pierre. I don’t know you, and I don’t follow this blog. So I can’t really comment on any of it. But I’m curious… I do follow a lot of these couponing/savings/mommy blogs and I have for quite some time. I have NEVER seen this type of banter on any of the blogs I follow. What is going on? What is making people say these things? Very weird.

    • Carrie -

      Lindsay, these happen on all sorts of blogs, most comments are just deleted.
