Gloucestercitynews.net/CNBNewsnet comment rules, subject to change.
Starting immediately no further comments will be published from anyone who doesn't provide us with a working email address along with their name, street address, and phone number. And, before that comment is published you will be contacted and asked to verify the remark (s). Furthermore, your real name will be published with your comment; no more anonymous or fake names.
If the information we are requesting is not provided the comment will be trashed.
For too long we have allowed people to comment without knowing their names. And, in doing so we are leaving ourselves wide open for a lawsuit. Even though we closely monitor the remarks there is always that chance one will get by us. Most recently a 500 word comment was received with the name of a person that we know. They also provided a working email address. But, to our surprise, the email address was for a north jersey newspaper. We had no way of reaching the person who allegedly sent it to us so it was deleted.
Our attorney said, "your action is long overdue, especially in the world we live in today where everyone is looking to sue someone at the drop of a hat."
You can post comments on any topic you want to talk about. Stay away from name-calling. You must stay on topic or the comment will not, repeat, will not be published.
No profanity. Immediate family and children of politicians, public figures, public employees are off-limits.
As far as editing statements; some people submit posts using foul language. While others will make such outlandish remarks they are not worthy of public discussion. We edit those comments or censor them. We are trying to provide an open forum to you the public to discuss what is on your mind. We should be able to disagree with each other without getting personal.
Copyright laws prohibit copying entire articles. If you want to share a story send in a few sentences along with the link to that story. You must provide that link otherwise your comment will be deleted.
Not responsible for content posted by users.
If you read something that is inappropriate or wrong please bring it to our attention immediately, firstname.lastname@example.org
