1. Comments Policy

1.1 All Rights Reserved
AMTV reserves the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. AMTV has the right to block access to any one or group from commenting or from the entire website.

1.2 Comment Form Guidelines
The comment form must be filled in with a proper or legitimate sounding name and URL. Comments using keywords, spam or splog-like URLs, or suspicious information in the comment form will be deleted. Your comment will not be edited, it will simply be deleted in its entirety.

1.3 Links
If you are leaving a comment and want to point to a link on your own or someone else’s site that is relevant to the topic, please feel free to do so. Keep in mind, however, the link must be relevant and add value to the article and its readers. AMTV is set up to automatically hold any comment with more than one link in moderation, which may delay your comment from appearing.

1.4 Thank You Comments
Superficial comments that appear to be an attempt to get a backlink or get past comment moderation will be deleted.

1.5 Copyright and Plagiarism
If notice is received that a comment contains proprietary, copyrighted or plagiarized information, that comment will be deleted and the commenter may be blocked from further commenting.

1.6 Email Privacy
Email addresses are required for commenting, and they are not published on AMTV, nor shared. They may be used by our administrators to privately contact the commenter.

1.7 Commenter Privacy and Protection
Comments containing email addresses, physical mail addresses, phone numbers, and any private and personal information will be deleted as soon as possible to protect the privacy of the affected party. To prevent such editing, never share private information within AMTV comments.

1.8 Attachments
If you want to post an image or a workbook, please upload it to a file sharing service such as Photobucket (images) or SkyDrive (files) and link to it in your comment. Keep in mind that your comment may be held if it contains links. Please do not post screenshots of VBA code — copy and paste the code into the comment directly.

1.9 Language and Manners
Comments which include offensive or inappropriate language, or considered by AMTV administrators to be rude and offensive, will be deleted. Especially irritating are comments that disparage Microsoft (while asking for help with a Microsoft product). In the interest of fair play, no personal attacks are permitted in AMTV comments. You may question or argue the content, but not attack AMTV administrators, nor any other commenters. Failure to respect fellow participants on AMTV could result in removal and blocked access.

2.0 What To Do If Your Comment Does Not Appear?
Please be patient. Comments cannot always be approved right away. Please do not submit the same comment unless you think your original comment was not submitted correctly the first time.

2.1 Multiple Comments on the same Article
Multiple related comments on the same post (usually one after the other) may be combined into a single comment.

2.2 Irrelevant Comments
If a comment is irrelevant to a specific topic, it may be moved to another post to which it is relevant, if possible. If no suitable post can be found, it may be deleted.

2.3 Comment Spam
Any comment assumed to be possible comment spam will be deleted and marked as comment spam. In addition, it will be reported to services such as Project Honeypot, Botscout and/or Stop Forum Spam.

2.4 Liability
All comments within AMTV are the responsibility of the individual commenter. By submitting a comment here, you agree that the comment content is your own, and to hold this site, and all subsidiaries and representatives harmless from any and all repercussions, damages, or liability.

2.5 Trackbacks Are Comments
All trackbacks will be treated inline with our Comments Policy.
