Commenting features in Concordia University’s website such as on blogs and forums exists to promote intelligent discussion within the Concordia University community. By commenting, you agree to four principles of commenting:
Be legal. You should not post comments that are libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive or contain otherwise illegal content.
Be respectful. You should not threaten or abuse, written, verbally, or otherwise, other commenters or authors. You should not make other commenters feel unsafe or unwelcome. You should keep your language relatively appropriate for a university community. Hate speech is strictly forbidden and will result in your comments being removed and a possibly permanent ban on future commenting. Understand that debating and attacking are two entirely different things.
Be relevant. Your comments should be on-topic and not self-promoting. "Spam" comments and advertising are strictly forbidden. Comments should encourage discussion about important issues to the university community. As we are part of a university community, we feel that commenting should promote an educational experience.
