Comment Policy

We’d like to keep this site informative. To that end, comments that provide further information to the topic at hand are welcome. The comment area is not a place for insults. Therefore mean, nasty or otherwise disparaging comments directed at persons will not be tolerated. Furthermore:

  • Comments with obscenities or implied (or masked) obscene words are prohibited.
  • Spam and promotion of commercial products, solicitations or advertisements of any kind are not allowed.
  • Comments that are irrelevant to the associated post will be denied or removed.
  • Comments that contain falsehoods or misrepresentations damaging to any party are prohibited. The whole point of this site is to correct misrepresentations and falsehoods. We’d prefer they not creep in via comments!
  • Any direct threat of harm and/or harassment is prohibited and may precipitate intervention by authorities.
  • Any defamatory, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive comments, or comments that¬†encourage a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or are otherwise inappropriate are prohibited.
  • Comments that:
        • share personal information about others or otherwise invade their privacy;
        • that impersonate another person or
        • use any method to misrepresent the origin of the comment

      are prohibited.

  • Prohibited comments will be removed as soon as discovered and the person making the comment(s) may be blocked.
  • Links in comments may be allowed or removed at our sole discretion. (Links germane to the topic are more likely to be allowed. Links deemed to be spam, defamatory, fake news, or otherwise unhelpful will be removed, or the post may be denied entirely.)
  • Comments become the property of this site upon submission and may be edited for brevity and clarity.
