Commenting Policy

This blog is dedicated to sharing useful resources and discussing important issues with Democrats and others who support Democratic ideals and principles. We strive for higher quality traffic. Our followers include top Democrats and Democratic organizations. This site was not created for conservatives, libertarians, or teabaggers. We will allow their comments as long as they do not violate our commenting policy.

We welcome comments that apply to the post topic and contribute to a meaningful discussion.

Please keep your comments to a reasonable length, such as a few paragraphs.

We use the Disqus commenting system and you must be logged-in to leave comments. You can login with your Twitter, Facebook, Google or Disqus accounts.

Comments that require moderation

  • Comments that contain offensive or vulgar language may be sent to moderation. This is an automated process. These posts are placed in moderation and will need to be approved before being published. If you prefer not to wait for moderation, rewrite your comment without the offensive or vulgar language.
  • Any post containing more than 3 links will be sent to moderation. This is an automated process. These posts are placed in moderation and will need to be approved before being published. This is a common practice to help control spam. If your comment is not spam, please be patient; we’ll review and approve it as soon as possible.

We have a zero tolerance policy regarding trolls.
“Trolls” are typically right-wing haters who leave antagonistic comments with the intention of disrupting the conversation, attacking members of the community, or spreading hateful, off-topic rhetoric or misinformation that serves no purpose. A common troll tactic is to redirect visitors; to hijack the article by writing outrageous comments on an unrelated topic so visitors will discuss the unrelated topic. Some trolls are actually paid to perform this function. Many lefty blogs are infested by right-wing trolls. They may be tolerated because it results in higher traffic stats that advertisers want to see. Its not worth the trouble. We will never allow this site to be infested with trolls. A troll’s comments will almost always be removed and the individual will be blocked from submitting future comments.

Spam ads in comments will be removed and the individual will be blocked.

“Anonymized” Disqus accounts are treated as spam. If you want to comment in this blog, you must stand behind your comments, not hide behind them.

We support lefty bloggers, so providing a link to your lefty blog article that is related to one of our posts will almost always be allowed.

If you object to having a comment removed or edited per our commenting policy, keep one thing in mind: this a personal blog and visitors have no legal right to comment.
