2. Purely defamatory comments/character assassination are not tolerated. If your personal criticism is malicious or just baseless, I will delete. No excuses, no equivocation, no damns given. If it were the old days I'd just liberate your loose tongue with a swing of the axe. Hávamál or Lokasenna, which are you emulating?
3. Solipsism/Special Snowflake Syndrome. I really shouldn't have to explain this. Others have already done it far better. Don't act this way. Just don't.
An additional note:
I would like to let everyone know that I welcome and enjoy all true feedback, both positive and negative, and I will allow all honest comments no matter how harshly you judge my conclusions. However, you must bring your proof and defend it rationally. Any sort of false accusations, baiting, trolling, virtue-signaling, dodgy drivel, spastic denial, flip-flopping, Gish gallops, insulting language, and personal slander against myself or any other contributors is completely unnecessary and will not be allowed. I won't even bother answering them anymore. The entries of those exhibiting such behavior will be deleted. Angry? Blame the hordes of earlier fools who preceded you and wasted my patience. I will also delete all responses to those entries even if the response is more sane and well thought-out, because I do not believe in letting arguments with trolls and baiters continue. This is not twitter and this is not your personal blog. It's my blog. And I have no obligation or incentive to tolerate trash on my blog. Let's keep it respectable, show respect to get respect, and maintain Frith and Ehrenschaft at all times.
Any spamming, foppery, or posting links to irrelevant websites will similarly be treated as an attempt at derailing and undermining the purpose of this blog (reviving the Runes and Indo-European consciousness) and will be dealt with as such. It is odd how such people never have the backbone to fess up and admit who pays them. Continuing such behavior will result in deletion of comments.
In addition, any comments containing URLs of websites that promote criminal/gang activity or political agitation, or for that matter anything that could get my work taken down, will be deleted. This blog does not promote any sort of political violence or gang activity, and is not connected to any political party; any attempts to do so will be dealt with swiftly. If you have such agendas place take them elsewhere. There is no place here for short-sighted criminal stupidity that will hurt serious Runers and make us all targets tarred with the same foul brush. This is cultural, not political.
Real Rune Magick is about how we can improve and elevate ourselves above the base instincts of hunter and hunted. Indeed, what contrasts the Runic paths as a proactive, solar Indo-European stream of wisdom (as opposed to reactive orbiter herd-ideologies that have lain shackles on so many of the planet's inhabitants) is that we believe in the improvability of man, through successive personal achievement, praxis and initiation, in a definable and measurable sense - in orthopraxy, not orthodoxy. We do not think anything is wholly good or wholly bad, as pure absolutes only exist as ideals, not corporealities (though striving for the ideal good is seen as meritorious and far from futile; whatever Garma you sow, your descendants will reap its Wyrd). We prefer, as such, to concentrate on (and to cultivate) what is essentially noble, ethical, self-sufficient and transformative, and to leave behind what is essentially ignoble, dishonest, abusive and regressive. I ask my readers to do the same: If you are leaving a public comment please keep the tone constructive and informative, and do not sink to the level of the sorts of lie-mongering people who seek to persecute us and silence the Old Ways once more.
Please note, I will not tolerate comments that slander, falsely accuse, harass or denigrate any individual, group, or religion, etc. While there are obviously some ideologies which are not in any way compatible with the life-affirming Runic Indo-European paths - and the contrasts are telling - there is no useful purpose in spending one's time scapegoating cabals (for the millionth time) which should have no appeal to the serious Runenmeister in the first place. The point of this blog is to unlock the wisdom of the Runes to conquer personal shortcomings - not to stagnate and blame some person or group as a lazy cop-out for said shortcomings. The powers of the Runes, let alone Asa and Arya, are not open to the cowardly whiner who merely seeks excuses instead of solutions.
Life is short. If you find yourself taking time out of your day to post negative remarks on the net, or to talk only about what others are doing wrong, I strongly recommend that you take that time to focus on improving yourself — mentally, physically, and spiritually — instead. Travel the path of Nobility and reach for the Mysteries. The quality of your life will improve, and you’ll feel more fulfilled.
