The Gazette encourages comments on its stories. The Commenting Policy is intended to ensure such comments are appropriate and respectful.
Comments are monitored by the Gazette and its web editors. Comments are published as submitted without moderation. Comments may be deleted if they contain excessive profanity, promote hate of any kind, harass or intimidate other commenters, are posted more than once, use misleading or offensive names, are potentially libelous, contain commercial content, are promotional in nature, or violate the Gazette’s Code of Ethics or Letters Policy. Comments should always be relevant to the article and discussion and may be deleted if they do not offer a meaningful contribution. The Gazette may close comments on its stories if the discussion becomes unproductive, irrelevant or incendiary.
Comments on the website — like any content published by the Gazette — are the Gazette‘s property and may be published in the paper edition. The Gazette may release commenter information to police if required by law.
If you have any comments or concerns, feel free to e-mail editor-in-chief Julian Uzielli at email@example.com.
