Reader comment guidelines:

The School Supplies for Afghan Children blog encourages all of our readers to comment. Our goal is to maintain a community where readers feel free to express themselves, but we also recognize that some conversations following blog posts, photos and other content on this site can take on a negative and unproductive tone not appropriate for the learning experience designed for the students participating in this course. When this happens, we reserve the right to delete such comments or close the comments section on those pages.

We encourage comments that:

  • Are “on topic”, and that respond to the content in the blog post
  • Are responses to comments left by other readers
  • Are brief and to-the-point
  • Have a positive/constructive tone
  • Are open to being contradicted by other readers
  • Might disagree with the content in the blog post, but they never insult the writer of the article or blog post, or other commenters

We discourage comments that:

  • Are not “on topic”, or are not responding to other comments or the content in the article or blog post
  • Insult the writer of the article or blog post or other commenters
  • Are excessively long or negative in tone

We will delete comments, without notice, that:

  • Are abusive, harassing, threatening or vulgar
  • Are personal attacks, including name-calling or celebrations of another person’s death or misfortune
  • Contain advertising or spam
  • Are disruptive, including personal conversations better suited for private messages

Frequent violations of above mentioned guidelines will cause a commenter’s registration and profile to be closed without notice.
