You are solely responsible for your opinions, and using TribLive.com means you agree to our terms of service.
We review comments. Our goal is to provide substantive comments to ordinary readers. By filtering submitted content, we provide a space where readers can share smart and wise comments, thereby improving the quality of our news and information.
Although most comments are topical rather than insulting, they will be posted, but the host’s decision is subjective. We will do our best to make them as discreet and consistent as possible. Due to the high volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual review decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments that represent a variety of opinions that enable them to express their opinions quickly and politely.We work hard to protect the discussion from repeated comments by the same reader or different readers
We follow the same taste standards as daily newspapers. Some things we cannot tolerate: personal attacks, obscenities, vulgarity, profanity (including foul language and followed by dashes), commercial propaganda, impersonation, incoherence, pro and sh indecent. Do not include the URL of the website.
We do not edit comments. They are approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit the comments quoted or excerpted in the article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticisms on our work, but we do not want to discuss our policies and get into a deadlock, so we will adjust accordingly.
We will be grateful when readers and people cited in articles and blog posts point out facts or key errors and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via email. To avoid distracting other readers, we will not post comments suggesting corrections. Instead, corrections will be made in the blog post or article.
