Commenting Policy

We encourage your comments on our stories, and hope you will join the discussion. We review comments, and those that are off-topic or clearly promoting a commercial product won't make the cut. We also expect a basic level of civility; profanity or abusive language are out-of-bounds

We will remove comments that are:

  • Racist, sexist, offensive, unlawful, threatening, harmful, abusive, harassing, stalking, vulgar, obscene, objectionable, pornographic, commercial, and/or spam
  • Attacking and/or personally insulting towards other commenters
  • Duplicate comment(s) posted on multiple stories
  • Off-topic discussions

You are responsible for the comments that you post on our site. Although rare, we will ban accounts entirely if a commenter violates our policy. We may modify and reuse your comment (or an excerpt from it) on our website, or in another form, media or technology.

By using our sites, you agree that you will not hold our sites responsible or liable for any comments from other users on our sites. Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in the discussion.
