We here at Nomadic Politics encourage our readers to discuss the content, with comments or on Twitter, Facebook, in forums and on other blogs.
However, from experience, we have learned that some subjects and types of articles attract less constructive debates. So, for this reason, it was necessary to set up some guidelines for commenting.
Comments which are deliberately offensive or off-topic (within reason), or spamming, repetitive or otherwise troll-like will likely be removed. This includes remarks that are unlawful, threatening, abusive, libelous, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, pornographic, profane, indecent or otherwise objectionable to us.
If you are unable to speak/write without unnecessary profanity or insulting language, think twice before commenting. Your comments will probably be removed and you are likely to be banned altogether.
If a commenter chooses to engage in unnecessary, inappropriate name-calling, he or she will be banned from the site permanently and immediately.
By the way, we have a fairly open policy about off-topic comments. If you think other readers will be interested, then by all means, post your remarks.
Likewise, there will be zero tolerance for insults of a religious, sexual, racial, gender or ethnic nature to both the writers and the visitors to the site.
Discussions should be based on mutual respect even for opinions different from your own. Sadly, other blog sites have suffered as a result of allowing visitors to abuse an open commenting policy.
As a rule of thumb, think of this site as if it were a stranger's home, where you may meet new people, share your thoughts and listen to others.
Thanks so much in advance for your compliance.
