GroundUp comment policy

As of 5 March 2015, we have changed our comment policy once again.

If you have something thoughtful and interesting to say, please comment. You're welcome to disagree and debate with the author of an article. All we ask is that you do it in a way that contributes to a useful discussion. Please be civil. Please also use your first and last real names when commenting via the Disqus comment system.

The Disqus comment system allows comments to be flagged. If you believe a comment is defamatory or abusive please flag it. We'll look at it and decide whether or not to delete it. We are more likely to remove anonymous comments.
