Commenting Rules

We welcome all points of view at J$P, but we do have rules. Repeated failure to follow them may find you spending a day or two on Exile Island, but you will return with a new respect for the following simple guidelines:

Language: We are a family-friendly resource, and there is no reason to resort to tasteless vulgarities or foul language. Please conduct all discussions with at least a modicum of intelligence and respectability. Personal attacks and name calling directed at other commenters will not be tolerated. And avoid juvenilia: we've had our fill of insipid FNC insult phrases and they will not be permitted here. These include, but are not limited to, such knee-slappers as "Faux News", "O'Lielly", "Fixed Noise", "David Ass-Man", "Billo" and the like.

Content: This site is about cable news. Try to maintain a least a tenuous connection to the subject matter at hand. If you want to draw attention to somebody else's opinion, quoting a line or two is fine. Avoid lengthy cut-and-pastes: provide a link instead. (But do not repost links in the comments already posted in the blog itself.) We also ask that commenters not argue "facts" that aren't true. If we spot such arguments we may invoke "Moderator's Privilege": the attacker is challenged to document his claims. Moderator's Privilege is not a ban. Once the challenged issues have been resolved, the commenter's posting privileges resume.

Behavior: Don’t try to dominate or hijack a discussion by flooding the thread. Also, remember that the comments do not constitute your personal daily links blog. Plugging one topic or link after another does not constitute discussion. If you do not reasonably limit yourself, we will do it for you. Other forms of abuse include, but are not limited to: posting the same message over and over, racial slurs, threats of violence. One more word of advice: the use of multiple proxies or other anonymizers brings with it a presumption of malicious intent. Messages posted in this fashion may be removed for that reason alone.

Warning: Comments that violate the rules may be eliminated.
