In the spirit of holiday house-cleaning, it's time for a crash course in comments etiquette. What can you do? What should you definitely never do? What, in effect, do we want from you, Citizen Commenter?
Gawker Media blogs are known for their savvy commentary—and yes, that includes Gizmodo. We strive to let in a smart and plugged-in community, and we want comments that serve as first-rate contributions to the post at hand. We love new insight and inside information that you obtained from companies because you worked there. Or because you're familiar with the designer of some project. Or because you ARE the designer of some project. We value informed response and welcome spirited debate. Above all, comments should always further the discussion. "Lifehacker's Guide To Weblog Comments" is a great jumping-off point for the uninitiated.
