Comments Policy

Thanks for visiting Wall Street Daily. We encourage you to comment as much as you like. But we do have a few guidelines.

First and foremost, realize we put considerable thought into our content before it makes it online. All we ask is you do the same – “think” before posting any comments.

Your comments should be informative, engaging, on topic and brief. (Constructive criticism and/or respectful debate are always welcome, too). But if you can’t do any of the above, do us a favor and spare us the comment.

Here are a few other rules of the road:

  1. Use common sense when posting a comment. You, and not us, are legally responsible for your comments.
  2. We moderate comments on this site. We reserve the right to ban you from posting comments if you repeatedly violate our comments policy.
  3. We will NEVER censor or edit the content of a comment. We will only edit obvious errors in the e-mail or website provided.
  4. We will NEVER delete a comment or ban someone based on a point of view or your personal feelings towards our website or any of its editors.
  5. Please post on topic. If you have a question or response that is off topic please e-mail us.
  6. Providing a contrary opinion is great. But comment in a way that is respectful of other users. Abusing users in any way will not be tolerated. We reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason.
  7. Avoid foul language. Or we’ll delete your comments immediately… and ship you a bar of soap for that potty mouth.
  8. Spammers will be deleted and banned. We reserve the right to determine what is spam. In general, however, if you are using comments as a forum to sell your products or services, you are spamming. If you want to advertise on our website, please contact us.
  9. Links to on-topic external sources are encouraged.
  10. It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) that links to off-topic websites will be deleted.
  11. Promoting hate of any type will get you deleted and banned.
  12. Do not pretend to be someone you are not. For example, posting under our site name will get your comment deleted.
  13. Provide a valid e-mail address! It will never display anywhere on the live comment and will never be used by us or anyone else for anything other than a unique identifier to file your comment in our database.

A note on filtering:  We filter all of our comments through the spam filter Akismet.  Occasionally valid comments are thrown into the spam folder.  Our apologies for that but it’s a necessary evil so we don’t have to moderate 10,000 pieces of spam each week.  We do review our spam folder once a week for false positives.
