Comments Policy

Be respectful

Please be polite to all the members of our Community, including other commenters, authors, and the subjects of articles. Also, keep in mind that there are real people reading your comments.

Help building a Safe Space

Above all, we believe strongly that the community of The Global Observer should be a safe and welcoming space for all individuals, groups, and ideas. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to voice their opinion regardless of identity, politics, ideology, religion or agreement with other community members, the author of the post, or staff members as long as those opinions are respectful and constructively add to the conversation. Therefore in the name of love and respect, we reserve the right to remove any comment containing rudeness, insults, hate, hostility, or negativity. The community does not tolerate direct or indirect attacks, name-calling, insults, intentional attempts to derail, hijack, troll, or bait others into an emotional response.
Individuals who consistently or intentionally post these types of comments may lose their ability to comment and, if we deem necessary, be permanently excluded from the community.
If a credible threat is made against an individual or group, not only may it be removed but it is likely that it will be reported to law enforcement agencies and we will cooperate with them to any extent requested. Personal information should never be posted to The Global Observer comments section for the privacy and protection of all community members. This includes, but is not limited to, full names, addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses. Any comments that contain such information would be deleted.

Be yourself

Every person’s opinion is valuable and unique. Pretending to be someone else removes that unique value from you or from others. Don’t misrepresent yourself or others, or spread misinformation. If you do, you will make the community a less enjoyable and valuable place to be and misrepresentation may be removed when we see it.
