* Stick to issues, not personal attacks. Don't let a debate turn into a mudfight.
* We will delete things like profanity, racial slurs and other questionable material. In some cases, we will delete the offending comment but issue a warning before banning a user account altogether. In aggravated cases, such as if the commenter goes out of his/her way to let us know the violation was intentional, we will ban the account immediately.
* If your T-G account has been banned, you are banned until the newspaper decides to un-ban you. If you try to create a new account with another name, and we find out about it, we will ban that account too. A better solution is to ask for your account to be re-instated. But that's less likely to happen once you've already tried to sneak back in on your own.
