Commenting Guidelines


Comments are intended to be civil, friendly conversations. Please treat other participants with respect and in a way that you would want to be treated. You are responsible for what you say.


And please, stay on topic. If you see an objectionable post, please report it to us using the "Flag" option.


Please note that we reserve the right at all times to remove any information or material that is considered by us to be unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, profane, indecent or otherwise objectionable.


Personal attacks, especially on other participants, are not permitted. We reserve the right to permanently block any user who violates these terms and conditions.


Additionally, comments that are long, have multiple paragraph breaks, include code, or include hyperlinks may not be posted.


Be Civil. We reserve the right to remove comments that are: libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, harassing, or threatening. We may also remove posts that may violate any applicable laws, including but not limited to copyright, trademark, or patent rights, or anything we deem might contravene local or federal laws.


Be Relevant. Stay on topic and don't post comments that are self-promoting. We will remove posts that contain links to promotional sites, spam, campaigns, petitions, or any other links that do not contribute to the discussion.


Be Safe. Do not post personal information about yourself or others.


Be Real. We ask that users use their real names to create an honest and accountable community. We reserve the right to remove access from users who fail to comply with this policy.


Don't troll. Users who post disruptive or repetitive statements that hijack or derail the conversation may see their comments removed, and if applicable, their posting privileges revoked.
