The Rules of Hauissh



 
 

So, here you are… Welcome to my home.

 

I hope you like my book reviews and other writing, and decide to hang around. There are however a few a priori considerations which, unfortunately, have proven to be necessary after a few unsavoury incidents, and so I leave them here.

Your feedback is more than quite welcome, it is very important to me, though I reserve the right to not publish and/or answer comments, and this, quite honestly, without feeling obliged to justify any of my decisions. Any contributions that do not respect the few basic rules set out here will be summarily deleted. Period.

Please try to keep your comments concise and to the point – and above all on topic. You’re quite welcome to write your own post about it, and link back to mine, but a comment is not meant to be a 2,000 word essay. Besides, research suggests that shorter comments do tend to keep a healthy conversation going. This does not mean, of course, that there aren’t exceptions – and not least because, as it is said, it is indeed the exception that confirms the rule.

I expect politeness and courtesy at all times, and a minimum of ‘bloggetiquette’ – towards me, and quite particularly towards other guests in this home of mine. Remember, you are all guests under my roof. In return, you shall never receive anything less than absolute courtesy from me, at all times.

Also, mind your expletives, please. Remember that some people are sensitive to them. So try not to go OTT on them. Especially if they’re bad ones. And especially if you care at all to see your contributions approved. I do tend to believe that actions remain with those who practise them, and it really is no skin off my nose if you wish to be obnoxious – it’s just that I am not willing to let you do it in my home.

And that will be all. Nowhere near Quantum Physics, and certainly not as impenetrable as a simple Game of Hauissh, the Persons’ hexa-directional strategic battle game, whose rules are said to be so frighteningly complex they are totally beyond the grasp of all others, humans included (and yes, that was a literary reference! And the image is a clue.).

And on this note… Thank you so much for visiting – and doubly for your fantastic understanding.

 

Nina.
