The Unofficial Dappered Commenting Policy

Write only what you’d say to that person’s face. Maybe at 1:00 am in a dive bar. That’s always been the unofficial, and until now unspoken comments policy here on this tiny corner of the internet. Some sites (see Esquire.com) don’t even allow their users to express their instant opinions. And I get that. There’s too many people out there just trying to get a rise out of someone else. So they leave inflammatory, extreme opinions that for whatever reason make the anonymous person writing that comment feel a little more powerful. But that almost never happens here.
And for that, I want to express my gratitude to everyone who stops by this website.
After wrapping up our Made in the USA jeans giveaway, Todd Shelton wrote what you see above in an email. It’s the word “civil” that stands out the most to me. Whether you’re a regular participant in the comments section, or you’ve never hammered out a response to a post on the internet in your life… know that you’ve helped make this .com a bit different than most. Thank you.
