Comments and Comment Moderation

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using Sierrawave.net comments section you agree to our policy. All comments do not reflect the opinion of Sierra Wave Media, LLC or any of its properties.

Why do we moderate readers’ comments?

Our goal is to provide an information feed for a general readership which may include children. By screening comments, we have created a space where readers may exchange intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of information exchange from our subscribers.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can.  In most cases, a comment that is removed will simply be removed. However, when needed in order to restore balance and a neutral environment, we may from time to time point out rules.

We follow general standards of taste and will emphasize respect for others. A few things we won’t tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, soliciting for a product or business, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, threats, non-English comments, and defaming of Sierrawave staff.

Do we edit comments?

No. Comments are either allowed to remain or they’re not. We reserve the right to correct/clarify facts and a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article may be removed as we seek to protect copyrighted material as much as possible. Comments that are excessively long may be removed. We may from time to time remove one or our own posts in order to correct typos or if it is in the interest of clarity. When this does occur, all comments attached will also be removed. If comments violate these rules or terms the comment may be edited to link back to the terms of use.

When and where will my comment be displayed?

Comments will be revised in the order they are received. Comments are reviewed during regular business hours, be aware that comments may be monitored at any time. We reserve the right to limit comments.

Should I use my real name when making a comment?

Yes, definitely. While it’s not required, we have found that people who use their names carry on more engaging, respectful conversations. However, we recommend against revealing personal contact information on security grounds. We also will remove posts with objectionable images or personal information (e.g. addresses, phone numbers, work locations). Campaign slogans (including commercial promotion), soliciting, and/or disrespecting or stating disparaging remarks about Sierra Wave Media and its staff. We may not, however, provide an explanation and reserve the right to block readers based on any of these issues.

A reminder: Once your comment is published, it may be found in search results on Web sites like Google and Yahoo.

The moderator for these comment will have final decision of all comments. If they believe it’s a violation and its is not specifically outline in these terms, the moderator may delete that comment. Any questions or comments may be directed to the moderator of the Sierrawaves comments section, [email protected].
