SDavidPrince Here!

Thank you for coming to my site! I want to welcome you here. I also want to welcome everyone else here. 

I appreciate your engagement and contributions to my digital community.

In order to make this environment as welcoming as possible for everyone, I ask that everyone follow this comment policy.

By participating in the comment section, you agree to abide by these guidelines.


Be respectful

Treat others with kindness and respect. Avoid offensive language, personal attacks, or discriminatory remarks

Don’t bully, harass, or flame. Respect peoples' stated identities, names, and pronouns.

Do not disparage people based on their race, religion, country of origin, gender identity (or lack thereof), sexual orientation (or lack thereof), autistic/allistic/neurodivergent status, artistic/musical/creative ability, or disabilities (physical, cognitive, or otherwise).

Don’t go digging for information on people. Do not use peoples' “dead names” or search for private/deprecated information that they themselves have not intended for people to know at present. “Doxing” is absolutely not tolerated.

This applies to people who aren’t here, either. Treat every person as if they might be posting a comment. Even if they’re someone you hate or are globally reviled. It’s possible to criticize without being nasty.

This isn’t to say you can’t criticize others! Just be sure to criticize based on what they do or what they say, not based on what they are.

Feel free to express differing opinions, but do so in a constructive and respectful manner. Engage in thoughtful discussions that contribute positively to the community.


Stay on Topic, No Spam and Self-Promotion

Please keep your comments on-topic for the subject at hand. Keep your comments relevant to the post or discussion. Off-topic comments may be removed to maintain clarity.

Avoid spamming the comment section with promotional content or unrelated links. Self-promotion should be relevant and add value to the conversation.

Don’t post the same thing repeatedly. Don’t use every page as a springboard for advertising your own goods or services. (Posting about things you’ve personally done or made is okay, as long as it’s on-topic. But this isn’t your advertising opportunity.) For adverts Contact Me

Don’t post offensive/obscene/pornographic images in comments. Links to such material (if on-topic and not spam) should be clearly marked as such.

Absolutely do not post links to content likely to cause emotional or neurological triggers (including PTSD or epilepsy) without a clear content warning.


Specific topics to avoid

Unless they are germane to the discussion, please avoid these topics:

  • Current Nigeria politics
  • Comparative superiority/inferiority of established technology choices (platforms, operating systems, phones, cars, programming languages, etc.) All are good in their own ways, I make the reviews and open the discussions. Note that positive recommendations about a thing are fine! But it’s possible to recommend something without disparaging another thing.
  • Whether dogs are better than cats (they aren’t)
  • “Concern trolling” about other peoples' decisions, especially regarding identity- or gender-affirming things (they have certainly heard it already, and are not going to reconsider $foo for any $foo, yes you think you’re so clever in comparing genital surgery with someone cutting off their arms or whatever but we’ve heard it before and it’s just tiresome)
  • Bananas. They smell nasty, are loaded with sugar, and there are way better sources of potassium.

Privacy and Safety

Protect Privacy


Avoid sharing personal information, including yours or others'. Respect privacy and confidentiality. 

No Harassment


 Do not engage in any form of harassment, bullying, or intimidation. Report any concerns to me.

Changes to Policy

I reserve the right to modify this comment policy at any time. Your continued participation implies acceptance of any changes.
