Lesson Learned

In the wake of what has become lovingly known as The Great Cheese-Off of 2001, I began to reevaluate the cues my site was giving to users. It’s true that most people had been able to figure out what was appropriate and what wasn’t without much guidance from me. The only verbal cues I’d provided were a disclaimer right above the posting button. It said:

This is my personal site. It’s like my living room. I don’t let anyone come into my living room and say whatever they want. Posting to my site is a privilege, not a right. If you post inappropriate things, they will be deleted, and you will lose the ability to do so in the future. In other words, be nice. Thanks.
