Hoops Rumors Commenting Policy

Thank you for participating in the Hoops Rumors commenting community.  If you’re new to the site, register to comment here! Remember to confirm your email address before attempting to leave a comment.

When leaving a comment at Hoops Rumors, we ask that you avoid the following:

  • Attacks or insults toward other commenters, the Hoops Rumors staff, journalists, team personnel, players, or agents.
  • Otherwise harassing other commenters in any way.
  • Unnecessary political discussion. While basketball and politics regularly intersect, we ask that you refrain from using the Hoops Rumors comment section to discuss elections, politicians, political parties, or political beliefs. We aim to limit the Hoops Rumors comment section to the basketball topics covered in the post.
  • Inappropriate language, including swearing and related censor bypass attempts, lewdness, insults, and crude terms for body parts, bodily functions, and physical acts.
  • Inappropriate avatars or images.
  • Spam links or self-promotion.
  • Personal contact information in the comments section.

If you see comments that violate our policy, please flag them and/or contact us!  Please do not otherwise attempt to police the comments – we’d prefer you ignore any offenders until we are able to act.  Our staff will be increasing enforcement efforts.

Corrections for errors by the authors of our posts are welcome and appreciated.

This policy is always available at the bottom of the site, and will be re-posted periodically.
