A Note To Commenters

on November 1, 2013

At Tech.pinions we value and encourage spirited debate in our comments. You can argue with our writers and you can argue with other commenters, even vociferously. But we have a very low tolerance for personal insults.

The fastest way for your comment to end up in the bit bucket us to call someone, or even a company, “gay.” In addition to making you sound like Eric Cartman, it gets your comment bounced. Avoid the use of “fanboy” or “fanboi” as well. Even if you are using it without accusing someone of being one, or in jest, it is going to trigger a filter and, at the least, delay posting of your comment until one of the moderators gets around to approving it.

Above all, just be civil to one another and behave like adults.
