Commenter Policy Agreement
Guidelines for leaving comments:
Do not leave harassing comments or personal attacks. Comments should be related to the subject of the content. If you are the subject of personal attacks by another user, do not respond in-kind.
We believe user comments can lead to worthwhile conversation and that those contributing to the conversation can do so in a constructive way. We ask users to express themselves without name-calling and personal attacks.

Potentially slanderous or libelous comments are subject to removal.
Attacks on story subjects, contributors, or other commenters are subject to removal.
We reserve the right, but assume no obligation, to remove any user contributions. Problem users will be banned.
