Help us revamp comments!

Dear readers, We’ve been thinking a lot in the last few months about comments, which we believe are a large part of Bwog’s function as a public forum.

  • Hate speech
  • Unauthorized use of a person’s identity
  • Personal information about an individual
  • Baseless personal attacks on specific individuals
  • Spam or self-promotion
  • Copyright infringement
  • Libel
