CHEEROCRACY

This is not a democracy. This is a cheerocracy.

My comments section policy is simple:

Don’t be an asshole, or I punt you into the spam oubliette.

(The spam oubliette is this — I click the “spam” button on your comment rather than the “trash” button, so that the next time you post, that comment is auto-flagged as spam. If you persist in trying to comment, I am quite likely to block your IP address.)

Asshole-ish behavior includes, but is not limited to:

– Abuse.

– Racism.

– Sexism.

– Any other -ism I deem toxic.

– Shameless spammy selling of books or other wares.

– Trolling.

Often, asshole-ish behavior will be met with a warning, though if it’s suitably horrible, you may not be presented with that favor and will instead be booted into the spam oubliette. Also note that sometimes new posters or posters utilizing links will in fact be put automatically into spam.

Assume that things you cannot do in public, you cannot do here.

You have freedom of speech, but not freedom of consequence.

I moderate with a heavy hand because this is my house and my yard. I open it to the benefit of many, not the benefit of one. Which means: everybody plays nice, or the bad apples will be fished out of the barrel and flung into the woods to rot.

If you wish to report abuse: please do so at terribleminds at gmail dot com.

Please to enjoy.

  1. Me. Wendig, first off let me say that I may be the Atfermath series biggest fan. The books were fantastic! I’ve listened to the whole series at least 5 times. Sinjir Rath Velus was the best character I’ve seen in quite some time. My question is, will you be doing more work about Rae Sloane and her part of developing the first order in wild space. Again sir, I am addicted to this series and all the characters. They made me happy and absolutely pissed me off. When that happens, you know you are reading the works of a legend. Thank you for bringing this series to life.
