We welcome and encourage your comments and conversation. We won’t, however, publish inappropriate content. We review all content and reserve the right to publish only what we interpret as appropriate, as outlined in the following community standards:
1) We encourage civil disagreement.
Don’t agree with something we (or others) have said? You are welcome to challenge us or other commenters, as long as you follow these standards.
2) Keep it clean. No abuse, harassment, or defamation.
If you wouldn’t say it to your mother, please don’t say it here! That is: no foul language and no comments at the expense of others. We will not tolerate, racism, sexism, violence, homophobia, or other forms of hate-speech, or contributions that could be interpreted as such. We will not publish comments that abuse or harass commenters or authors, nor will we publish libelous content.
3) No spam. No selling.
Please keep your comments relevant to the topic at hand. We don’t approve spam (if you’re not sure what spam is, read this). Also, don’t try to sell your product or service here. If you’ve done something you’d like us to blog about or share, please contact us.
4) No plagiarism.
If you’re sharing someone else’s content, please attribute it accordingly. For a clear definition of proper attribution and fair use, please see the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Legal Guide for Bloggers.
5) The platform is ours, but the conversation belongs to everybody.
We want this to be a welcoming space for intelligent discussion, and we ask participants to help us by notifying us of potential problems and helping each other keep conversations inviting and appropriate. If you spot something problematic, please let us know.
Thank you for being part of our community.
