Jewcy’s comments policy is very simple:

  • Commenting at Jewcy is a privilege and not a right. It can be revoked if these guidelines are not adhered to.
  • Comments threatening the site, any of our staff members, bloggers, or other commenters will result in immediate action.
  • Commenters are required to use a civil tone. Jewcy respects the opinion of all community members and authors and we expect the same from users who comment.
  • Comments must be shorter than the article they are commenting on.
  • Comments must stay on the topic of the post.
  • No personal attacks or name-calling. All comments must be topic-specific, directly related to the content of the post and should not aim to insult the author or other commenters within the Jewcy community.
  • Comments that are racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise bigoted or prejudiced are not allowed.
  • Comments are moderated by the Jewcy Moderator. Any request that comes from the Moderator should be taken seriously.
  • If you observe a commenter who is not following the rules, then you should anonymously report them to the Jewcy Moderator. When doing so, please be as specific as possible, include the person’s username and link(s) to the comment thread(s) you are referencing.
  • Comment posts must be substantive and about whether you agree or disagree with the articles or other comments. If you feel that there is a topic that is not being covered on the site, please send a pitch email to a Jewcy editor or use your user blog as a platform for your opinion.
  • User blogs are intended as a place for Jewcy members to post about Jewish topics and their opinions. They are not a place to post links to post excessive outside links, link to your personal blog, or promote yourself or a product you are selling. If you would like to take out an ad on Jewcy, take out an ad. Misuse of the user blog can result in being blocked from the site.

Also: spam is not allowed.
