Commenting is a fun thing to do, even debates can be friendly and genuinely interesting to read but not when they’ve turned toxic. We appreciate the many readers who have taken the time to leave comments and contribute their thoughts over the years. However, we do know that trolls exist and there are times when discussions simply go off the rails. In order to keep this space harmonious, please refer to the guidelines below. 

No spam. All comments automatically go through a spam filter which also filters out links. Links relevant to the post are permitted, but it will have to be manually approved which may take a while as it could also get lost among the sea of spam comments:(

No profanity or foul language. Words containing profanity are automatically rejected so if you’re wondering why it’s not posted, that’s why. 

No verbal attacks against anyone else. If you can’t be nice, please at least be civil. Comments deemed offensive, abusive, pornographic or misleading will be rejected upon review. 

No using multiple accounts.
Individuals commenting under different usernames to respond to themselves may find themselves blocked.
Please understand that it is not possible for us to review each and every comment to enforce the above guidelines. That means we really need your help in adhering to the comment policy to make sure this is a safe space for everyone. We also reserve the right to delete comments or shut down the entire comments section should things get too unruly. Thank you for your cooperation.
