  1. Do not ramble.
  2. Research your facts, back up your comments with data where applicable.
  3. Be respectful, no matter the tone of your comment.
  4. Only comment if you have something useful to add to the conversation. It is certainly alright to disagree with the original post, just do it in a manner that doesn’t make all of the readers shut you out for being rude. Try to avoid posting “I agree” and nothing else, which just fills space on the page.
  5. Be honest about who you are, your email address, etc. In a corporate situation, I think it is highly appropriate to make yourself known to those within the discussion. This will lend credibility to your comments.

What are your guidelines for posting on a corporate blog?
