Comment Policy

We think it’s great when people read our stories, and even better when someone wants to leave a comment – either on social media or on our website.

While we appreciate each comment, if your comment does not follow our comment policy, it may be removed. Continuous abuse of the policy may result in permanent ban of the IP address, domain, and the email used.

We do our best to apply this policy consistently across all our platforms, however, we make no guarantee to that effect. Our ability to moderate comments varies between our website and different social media channels. In addition, different staff members may interpret this policy and individual comments in different ways.

What to Do If Your Comment Does Not Appear – Comments on our website are moderated, meaning someone has to review and approve each comment. While we try to be quick, sometimes we’re busy with other things (like writing stories). If you leave a comment and it does not appear in a reasonable time period (1 business day), and you know that it does not violate these Comment Policies, please contact us at info@mostofus.ca.

Policy

Valid Email – Email addresses are required for commenting, and they are not published on the blog, nor shared. Email addresses that look like SPAM will be flagged as SPAM.

Mind Your Manners – Any comment that includes offensive or inappropriate language, and/or is considered rude by our staff will be deleted.

Stay on Target – Comments about unrelated topics may be edited, moved, or deleted. We understand that you really hate/love the Conservatives/Liberals/NDP and you know they will destroy/save the country, however… we don’t care. Comments that try to link a story to politicians, the alt-right, antifa, or millennials will probably be removed. All SPAM comments will be deleted because they do not add value to the site.

Limit Links – In order to prevent SPAM and assure quality, we must limit links on the comments. Any comment containing a link will be held for further review.

No Personal Attack Comments Permitted – You may question or argue the content, but not attack the author, nor any other commenters. Failure to respect this rule could result in removal and blocked access.

All Rights Reserved – Most Of Us reserves the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. We also have the right to block access to any one or group from commenting.

Platforms – This comment policy may be enforced on our website, our social media accounts, and any platform that gives us the ability and authority to moderate user comments.

Hold Harmless – All comments on Most Of Us are the responsibility of the commenter, not the staff. By submitting a comment you agree that the comment content is your own, and you agree to hold Most Of Us, all subsidiaries of Most Of Us, and all representatives of Most Of Us harmless from any and all repercussions, damages, or liability.

If you have any questions regarding the policy, you may contact us at info@mostofus.ca.
