Our Week In The Web: April 10, 2015

This article is more than 6 years old.

Since we were newly accused of excessive comment moderation this week by a listener on Facebook, it feels like as good a time as any to remind everybody our standard of moderation. Here it is: we aim for open, respectful conversation in our Disqus, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr feeds. While we'd love for comments to stay on topic with the subject at hand, we understand that that doesn't always happen, and we accept that as a natural trajectory of Internet forum behavior. What we do not tolerate is excessive or explicit language, sexual content and violent or threatening behavior toward other commenters and individuals. If a comment you post seems to be misplaced, it's either idling in our moderation queue or been delayed by the backend parts of whatever forum you're using. (In the above-mentioned Facebook user's case, those comments were probably delayed or removed by Facebook itself in an attempt to guard against excessive repeat commenting, a feature that we actually have no control over ourselves). This may not be the answer you're looking for, but it is the answer we have. Hope that helps clear things up!
