POLICY on Comments
Site discussion guidelines
We encourage a collegial, non-insulting tone. We do not welcome any of the following:
Potentially libelous statements.
Obscene, explicit, or racist language.
Personal attacks, insults, or threats.
Commercial product promotions.
Private personal information published without consent.
Comments unrelated to the topic of the forum.
Hyperlinks to material that is not directly related to the discussion.
Please consider that:
If your comment or article does not appear immediately, there is no need to submit it again.
Please treat others with respect. Flaming and trolling will not be accepted. Attack the issue, not the person.
Comments containing hate speech, obscenity, and personal attacks will not be approved.
Comments that seek to inflame tensions or are of a defamatory nature, will not be approved, or will be taken off the website as soon as possible.
We take all complaints against abuse seriously and automatically log, in a manner not beyond that which is made possible by WordPress, the details of those who post and comment in this forum, which may include public IP addresses. This information may be used to inform ISPs of repeat offenders who attempt to hijack this site by trolling, hate speech and comment spam.
We reserve the right to edit your comments and may post your comments sans the offensive wording.
We reserve the right to and will not hesitate to block the comments of those who repeatedly and over time use several pseudonyms/email addresses/ and post comments that do not help the conversation or inspire robust debate but merely abuse our contributors and writers on a personal level.
Comments are automatically shut off on articles 30 days or older
