Yes! TPM Media follows a simple set of rules for acceptable commenting:
1. All political viewpoints are welcome. However, hate speech of any kind, libelous statements or threats to fellow users or others will be deleted and may be grounds for suspending or terminating a user’s account.
Four letter words are not banned, but we ask that they be used sparingly as overuse coarsens and undermines the debate.
TPM is a venue for lively and passionate debate. But insults, personal attacks and the like make that sort of enlivening exchange impossible. If you just want to scream and taunt, please go somewhere else. If you have any question about what is and what’s not acceptable, follow this rule: If you wouldn’t use a certain word or talk to someone a certain way in a real-life political discussion at a Coffee House, don’t do it here either.
