AAR loves comments. We are a community where everyone is welcome. Here are our guidelines. Our goal is to make our discussion threads productive and positive.

#1: No bullying or personal attacks. If we deem your comment racist, sexist, homophobic, or in any way offensive, we will delete it. If you insult or threaten a fellow commenter or an AAR staff member, your comment will be deleted. If you continue to post offensive comments, we reserve the right to ban you from commenting on the site.

#2: AAR has the final say over what is or isn’t allowed on the site and generally we won’t publish comments about our moderation.

#3: Stay on topic. Be concise. Comments we believe derail a thread may be deleted.

#4: Disagreement is cool. Dismissiveness is not.

#5: Be kind.
