Reminder About Comment Rules

From Editor Robert Parry: At Consortiumnews, we welcome substantive comments about our articles. But we don’t welcome insulting, racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic or other bigoted remarks. Violators can expect such comments to be removed and chronic violators will be put on a pre-clearance list.

Commenters also should refrain from making baseless allegations or spreading wild conspiracy theories, and please don’t include lengthy reprints from other publications, which may create copyright infringement problems.

In general, we urge commenters to be as succinct as possible. Overly long comments can detract from the comments of others. Thank you for your cooperation.

Robert Parry, Editor

    I like the publication of the comment rules. I have been bothered in the past
    by the unnecessary racial or religious descriptions of people or activities.
    I thought that racism had gone away with Hitlers suicide.He set a good example for racists.

    Professional mediation/facilitation/deliberation without discussion guidelines is an exercise in futility. So long as you stick to the rules you describe you should foster meaningful dialogue, something long forgotten in America but essential to our future.

    Hmmm

    Is rightfully critizing the crimes committed in the name of zionism and the state of israel considered anti-semitic?
