GCM Watch is pleased to extend to its readers the ability to comment on stories to encourage discussion. As such, lively discussion and debate are welcome in the Christian context. Certain kinds of posts, however, are not allowed. These include:
- Obscene language
Obscene or pornographic language is not welcome, nor acceptable in any context. Any post using such language will be deleted.
- Threats or advocation of violence
Threats (3rd party included) to harm another person are prohibited. Any such threats posted will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
- Identity theft
Presenting yourself as someone you are not is dishonest and destroys honest discussion.
- Personal attacks against contributors
You may discuss issues, debate ideas, or even one’s position on the stated issue, but not the person. We expect mature, responsible discussion.
Gratuitous, self-promotional advertising is barred from this forum.
Accusing someone by name with no source documentation is unacceptable. Speculative type comments will be evaluated on a case by case basis and could face deletion.
Visitors are welcome to post comments that are relative to the respective post or to question, comment and debate specific text within the post or someone’s comments related to the post. GCM Watch may not post your comment if it is what we consider a general “soapbox” type comment that has no clear relation to respective post or the nature of this blog. Commenters displaying a determined propensity to violate our policy will be placed on a one week restriction after 3 such posts. GCM Watch reserves the sole right to determine whether a comment meets criteria outlined here. We also reserve the right to modify this policy as needed at any time and without notice. Please note that ALL first time comments will be moderated. If you do not see your comment published immediately, please be patient. Generally, it will be approved it unless it violates our policy. Although the contents of each comment are the sole responsibility of its author, comments themselves are property of GCM Watch to be used at our discretion in other forms of narrative. Information not suitable for the commenting system may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
