Our Week In The Web: March 4, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

We know as well as many of you do that most of our social traffic comes off of our Facebook page (have you seen it? Check it out!), but we also love the lively, eager conversations we engage with you on Twitter. (You should follow us on Twitter, or take a look at the feed to see what you're missing.) That said, we wanted to clarify a point of possible contention after a user wondered why they had been blocked from our feed this morning. The answer to this particular user (who has since been unblocked) applies to many users who might wonder why they've been blocked. We are 100% behind a free and open-ended conversation on Twitter, Facebook or any other social commenting platform, but we do take a stand when you post violent, crass or sexually explicit language. We tend to lean toward the more permissive side of the question at hand, but when it comes down to frankly scatological images or content, we draw a firm line.
