Comment Policy

When it comes to commenting here at Constitutional Daily, we follow the philosophy of Darth Vader:

"Don't make me destroy you."

It's more of a guideline than a rule.  We know that lawyers and law students are under a lot of stress, and sometimes you need a place to vent.  Heated, colorful commentary is welcome.  But, keep in mind all the crap your fellow users have to deal with during the day.  Don't add to it.

Don't be obnoxious.  Don't be vulgar just to be vulgar.  Don't post nearly identical idiotic comments on every single thread.  If you're going to troll, you'd better bring your A game.

We also have a comment policy for our writers:

Don't respond to comments about the quality of your articles.

If someone has a substantive question ("What do you mean by Seamlessweb ass?" or "Did you consider the case of Ugly Tree v. Yo Momma?") feel free to answer.  But, if someone just thinks your arguments are weak, analysis is crappy, or your style sucks, responding isn't productive. The best place to make your argument is in the article, when you write it. After that, your writing has to speak for itself.

The reason the comment policy for writers is posted here, rather than just communicated to them privately over e-mail is so that you, the reader, know about it.  Why didn't someone respond to your criticism?  Because they're not allowed to.  If you make a comment that they are allowed to respond to, keep in mind that they're generally busy with more important things, so you might not get a response anyways.
