Community guidelines

Have something to say? We’d like to hear from you.

We encourage you to post your comments, questions, opinions, and thoughts. We just ask that you keep it civil and on-topic, and don’t break any laws.

This is a place for discussion, not for name-calling or spamming or trolling. Comments are never altered, but we do reserve the right to remove any that are deemed profane, inflammatory, defamatory, or otherwise mean-spirited.


Why do I have to give you my email address?
We use email addresses to verify that comments are coming from real people and aren’t spam. Also, in the event that you have a question that warrants a personal response, we have the option of reaching you via email rather than within the discussion forum.

But we won’t use this information to send you emails that you don’t want, and we won’t share it. Other site users won’t be able to see it. Promise.

Are my comments edited?
No. Comments are the responsibility of those who post them; we do not edit them for spelling, grammar, accuracy, or civility. However, we reserve the right to block or remove comments that are profane, inflammatory, defamatory, or otherwise mean-spirited.

I posted a comment and nothing happened. Why?
Comments may be reviewed by site moderators before being published. If your comment doesn’t violate any site policies, it should appear very soon. We’re on it.

What do I do if I think a comment is offensive or inappropriate?
If you think a comment violates site policies or the spirit of this discussion forum, you can flag it as inappropriate and we’ll have a look.

Can I put links in my comments?
No. We receive a number of comments that contain links promoting businesses or for-profit sites. Because of the difficulty of moderating these comments and eliminating spam, we don’t allow links of any kind. Sorry.

Can I put other HTML in my comments?
