You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide a content commentary to a general reader. By reviewing submissions, we provide a space where readers can share an intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on topic and not abusive, moderation decisions are subjective. We will do them as carefully and consistently as possible. Due to the volume of reader comments, we are unable to review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We appreciate thoughtful comments that represent a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repetitive comments from either the same reader or different readers
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. Some things we will not tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, stupidity (including explicit and letters followed by ducks), commercial promotion, impositions, non-existence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Do not include URLs on the Website.
We do not modify comments. They are approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or taken out in an article. In this case, we can adjust the spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism about our work, but we do not want comments to be fooled by our policy discussions and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point to errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all allegations. But these suggestions should be emailed. In order not to distract other readers, we will not publish comments that suggest a correction. Rather, corrections will be made in a blog post or article.
