Commenting Guidelines

Guidelines for Commenting on is meant to be a supportive space for people to share their thoughts and feelings and experiences, which is why we invite all visitors to our site to comment on our content.

If you would like to add a comment, please keep the following guidelines in mind when doing so.

• Please be courteous to our writers, staff and your fellow commenters. Before you post something, ask yourself: Would say what you’ve written to a person’s face? If not, consider editing your comment before posting.

• We reserve the right to remove or edit any comment at any time without any notification or explanation. This is particularly applicable to comments that contain offensive or hateful language, including, but not limited to racism, homophobia, misogyny, misanthropy, sexism or ageism (or any other hateful ‘ism’ we have not listed here).

• We do our best to moderate the comments diligently, but as our site grows, there may be some we miss. If you come across a comment that you feel is offensive please let us know at with the subject line “Offensive Comment Flag”. Include the URL so that we may easily find the comment in question.

• We will not tolerate any comment that simply promotes a product/website without furthering the conversation about the content. These comments will be marked as spam and deleted. If, however, you have found something that is relevant to the content at hand—a great site or product, including your own—do not hesitate to include the URL in your comment. (These are sometimes flagged by our spam filter, but we will do our best to approve them in a timely manner.)
