Any first time commenters who comment on threads that are over a few weeks old will be automatically banned. This is due to the fact that this is a favorite tactic of spammers and scammers. If you are commenting here for the first time the solution is very simple – comment on a new thread first.

Other than that the general rule is do not be a dick. Vulgar and smart is the best possible comment combination.

For a more detailed look at the comments policy please view this thread and this one. Ignorance of the comments rules is no excuse.
