Comment Policy

Ansible Communication (AnsComm) is written from an adult perspective. That is not to say that this is an adults only playground. I actively want and encourage engagement from people of all ages, but there is always the possibility that conversations may head into directions that may make some readers uncomfortable. Feel free to look the other way.

Comments on AnsComm are heavily moderated and anything not related to the conversation will be deleted. There is little tolerance given for typical Internet stupidity. This is supposed to be a safe place for discussion, and in that effort there is zero tolerance given for comments of a racist, sexist, homophobic, or similarly non-inclusive nature. In other words, if you say something particularly stupid, your comment will be deleted.

Though real names are preferred on AnsComm, you have the right to post comments anonymously, as an online persona, or as your brand or company. First time commenters will be sandboxed until their initial comment has been reviewed. Comment data related to your real identity, such as name, URL, and email address will never be shared, bartered, or sold to third parties. Your data is used for the express purpose of allowing visitors to participate in visible, public discussion on this site, and nothing else. For the convenience of visitors, AnsComm utilizes the Gravatar system. If you use that service, please be aware that your email address is publicly visible. If you do not use that service your email address is not attached to your comments. The only information that is publicly visible is your user name, and if you choose to add one, your URL.

Commenters grant AnsComm a license to use comment data exclusively for participation in online dialog on this site only, and agree to “hold harmless” Ansible Communications, thee midnight refuge, and the authors and moderators of same from any and all legal repercussions, damages, and liabilities perceived to have been caused by participating in this site’s online conversations.

For further information, please see the AnsComm privacy policy.

If you have any questions, please don’t suffer in silence. Feel free to contact us.
