Comment Policy

Comments and questions are welcome.

Racism, sexism, homophobia, misogyny, misandry, body-shaming, leering comments directed at people featured in Rolling News photos, disrespectful comments about the recently deceased, libel, persistent aggressiveness, name-calling, bullying, incitement to hatred, being a persistent troll or an obnoxious bore, hijacking the usernames of other commenters and changing your username to avoid moderation are not, in fairness.

We’re very short staffed and careless so comments at odds with our comment policy sometimes make it through. We apologise for this and would encourage concerned parties to bring such oversights to our attention.

Feel free to give a fake email or website address. We don’t use any of your data, care about it or share it with anyone else.

We reserve the right to replace swearwords and offensive language with childish euphemisms.

Bold commenters go on the naughty stair to think about what they said.

Really bold commenters get banned permanently.

Permanently banned commenters returning with new usernames have their comments deleted or replaced with the phrase ‘I love kittens’.
