Why do you moderate comments?
We want to invite civil and engaged conversations so that your insights, questions and criticisms can add to the news we report. We don’t post comments that appear to contain inappropriate content.
Some examples of inappropriate content include incoherence, vulgarity or personal attacks, content in which commenters misidentify or misrepresent themselves, and off-topic commercial promotion (aka spam). SHOUTING (writing messages entirely in caps) derails conversation and makes our eyes hurt.
Where will my comment be displayed? Why isn’t it there yet?
Staff members moderate submitted comments, which means that submissions outside of business hours may take longer to post. Once approved, a comment appears at the bottom of the story on which you commented. When quoted or excerpted elsewhere in the paper, comments may be corrected for spelling, grammar or punctuation.
I found an inappropriate comment, where can I report it?
I see an error in a story. Where should I report it?
