Promoting a Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not. Moderators will monitor comments with the goal of maintaining a high level of civility. Our comment policy explains the rules for registered commenters.

If your comment was deleted, perhaps…

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity. This includes veiled profanity — #$%^&*.
  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion.
  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your concerns.
  5. You believe the newspaper’s coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor, or call Editor Kristen Czaban at 672-2431. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We’d rather address your concerns directly.
  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren’t or offered a comment that makes no sense.
  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.
  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
