We only ask that you refrain from using obscenities or racial slurs, from engaging in personal attacks on other commenters (name-calling) and from knowingly posting false information.
Additionally, comments made solely to point out someone’s grammar or spelling errors will be removed, and so will blanket condemnations of entire races, ethnicities, and religions.
Comment Rating system removed
You may have noticed that we’ve removed the feature that allowed readers to give the “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to comments. We’ve gotten complaints on this feature since we implemented it, mainly from readers who felt like their comments were being unfairly flagged by other readers with an “agenda.” This is not the reason why we removed this feature. We removed the Comment Rating system because it conflicted with a security feature just implemented this weekend. Since many of you hated the Comment Ratings anyway, you may be relieved to find out that we’ve discontinued it.
If you think we should bring this feature back, let us know. We’re open to bringing it back in a slightly different form.
Let your voice be heard… Speak Out!
