Comments Policy

We are in the process of developing a comments policy that fosters discussion and debate, while at the same time shielding our contributors and readers from abuse.

For now, let’s just say: we’re thrilled that you’re here, and we’d love to see your responses to our posts! We only ask that you respond thoughtfully (re-read before submitting!), respectfully (would you say that to your mother?), and in a way that opens conversations up rather than shutting them down.

With that in mind, we do not accept anonymous comments. We will delete any comments we determine to be sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or abusive in any other way. If your comments are way off-base, we might delete those too, in order to keep the discussions focused.

If you have suggestions for improving our comments policy, feel free to email us.
