We want to facilitate respectful, reasoned, and open discussions about Life, our services, and right-to-life issues. But, without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.
So here is our comments policy. By posting on our blog, you agree to the following:
1. You must register to comment.
You can do this by filling out the forms at the bottom of each blog post. Registering is free and easy for you, and helps us protect our blog from spam.
2. You may post with a username of your choice.
Our comment form includes a mandatory email address field. This information is 100% secure and will not be posted with your comment. We will never sell, rent, or share it.
3. You may post comments on our blog articles, and ask follow-up questions.
If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, we would rather receive your comments on our blog than via email. That way we can address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.
4. You may disagree with us.
We welcome debate. However, we ask that whether you disagree or agree with us, or anyone else, please do so in a way that is respectful.
5. We reserve the right to delete your comments.
This is our blog. We don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. Your free-speech rights give you the right to express your opinions on your blog, not ours. Specifically, we will delete your comments if you post something that is, in our sole opinion: (a) snarky, snide, disrespectful, or unnecessarily antagonistic; (b) off-topic; (c) libellous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate our sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.
6. You retain ownership of your comments.
We do not own them and we expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on our site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve us from any and all liability that may result from those postings.
7. You grant us a license to post your comments.
This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant us the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.
In short, our goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest and respectful people. We believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.
