Comment Policy

VeteransNewsNow.com is designed as a place where readers can freely comment on the issues of the day and contribute to the discourse

 

In order to ensure high-quality discussion and contributions, we have some simple and common-sense rules to follow.

Failure to abide by these rules may result in a warning by VeteransNewsNow.com (VNN) moderators or in some instances (for particularly grievous offenses or after repeated warnings), suspension or termination of your commenting privileges, your account, or access to VNN itself.

  • Do not harass, stalk, bully, or otherwise abuse any user on VNN. While we welcome healthy debate, there is a clear line between enthusiastic discussion and “flaming”. When in doubt, try to take a step back and see if your actions might be construed as an attack on someone as opposed to healthy disagreement. Remember, if someone harasses you, don’t harass them back – simply report the offending content to us.
  • Do not post any content which could be construed as hate speech – this includes racism, sexism, homophobia, and other such content which may advocate bigotry.
  • Keep posts on-topic. Discussion should remain centered around the topic of the page in question. While discussions can evolve over time, please try to keep your comments related to the original topic.
  • Do not vandalize the site. This can include uploading objectionable content to your profile, maliciously deleting other users’ contributions or making inappropriate edits to the Wiki, and other such actions.
  • Do not spam the site. Repeatedly posting identical comments (“flooding”), posting commercial messages, or the like are not conducive to the site’s purpose and we will respond accordingly.
  • Do not post any content which is invasive of another person’s privacy. This includes posting an individual’s non-public email address, telephone number, address, or other personal details. For instance, posting a Senator’s public office telephone number is acceptable; posting their home telephone number is not.
  • VNN does not publish rebuttals to, or critiques of, articles published on VNN or elsewhere. The “Comments” on any published article is the only acceptable place for such input.
  • VNN will not publish articles that are personal attacks on  authors or other websites. Articles are accepted on their substantive merits alone.

Finally, the VNN Editorial Board makes independent decisions on how to be effective.  If you feel that comment presented on VNN violates policy,please report via email to support@veteranstodaynetwork.com

Your mail will be sent to our board Editorial Board members for review. Please be specific in your report and include the URL address, title of article and comment and any other information that you would think helpful for a review. The board will take action and respond back to you.
