9. Comment Policy
You are welcome to comment. We like comment threads with a wide range of thoughts and opinions, and we take what we feel is well-justified pride in the general high quality of the comment threads on the Romance Scams Now™ website. We do take a light-hand at comment moderation, and thanks to excellent commentators, we are usually able to do just that.
If you feel a comment is not appropriate or engages in defamation, hate or hostile speech, commercial messaging or spam, or is a treat of any kind, you must report it immediately. We will periodically review comments for appropriateness, but we cannot investigate claims made, and accept no responsibility for them. To report an inappropriate or inaccurate comment, you may leave a reply to the comment or email us at email@example.com
That said, you have no right to free speech on this site. This is our website, meaning it is private property. We reserve the right to edit all comments and to moderate all comment threads, as we see fit. Your comment is more likely to be edited, moderated or deleted if it contains phobic content (based on race, sex, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, etc), is a personal attack or threat toward another commenter, is entirely unrelated to the page or post topic, features more than a “fair use” amount of someone else’s copyrighted work, has such poor grammar and spelling that it detracts from the website quality, is an attempt at self aggrandizement, or if we find it or you are over-commenting. If you do not accept these terms do not comment on our website.
A good rule of thumb is to comment as if the person to whom you are commenting is standing in front of you, and excellent legal representation. You may be legally liable for the comments you post, and Romance Scams Now™ accepts no responsibility nor will indemnify you for any comments you make.
During comment moderation, we will sometimes tell commenters to “move on.” That means they should not comment further in that particular thread. Subsequent posts in the thread by those people will likely be deleted and may result in them being banned from the website permanently. They may comment in other threads, but in such cases will be monitored for acceptable behavior. We are the sole decision maker of appropriate comments and on what is acceptable behavior.
Persistent abuse of commenting will result in being banned from our website and/or denial of access to our services.
If your comment does not appear immediately, it is because all comments require a review, though this review does not determine the accuracy of the comment, only if it is appropriate for the placement of the website. If we do not publish a comment, it is at our sole discretion. There is no appeal process, though you may contact us by email regarding any issue.
At our option, and for purely arbitrary reasons, we may reply to a comment or participate in comment threads. We respond to tone as well as the content. If you are abusive or engaging in a waste of our minimal available time, we may respond in kind. If you are offended by our comments, you have the option not to comment in the future, and or leave our website. We do not apologize for our comments and offer no warranties or commitments of any kind regarding our replies.
With the exception of comments moderated or deleted for the reasons noted above, we do not delete comments. However, we do routinely remove links or other information put into a comment that we would not otherwise delete for moderating purposes.
