Comments Policy

Listen. Watch. Read. Act.

Eye on the Storm is the only area of the Yale Climate Connections website that is currently open for commenting. Comments are welcome and accepted from visitors who identify themselves by name and email address (those identifying themselves as “Anonymous/Guest” will be removed).

Comments submitted may automatically be displayed or held in pending until reviewed and are the sole responsibility of the person posting them. Moderation decisions are at the discretion of YCC and its assigned moderators. (Please visit Eye on the Storm’s legacy commenting etiquette page for established “Rules of the Road”.)

Commenting for individual Eye on the Storm posts will generally be open for two weeks but may close at any time. Submit comments that are on topic and contribute in a positive manner to the community.

While conversation and the sharing of different ideas is encouraged, all comments should be respectful towards other commenters.

YCC reserves the right to remove comments that are abusive, discriminatory, vulgar, contain personal or ad hominem criticisms, and/or are threatening in nature. YCC also reserves the right to report/temporarily block/ban those who repeatedly violate this policy.

Please be sure to check back for any changes in policy. It is the responsibility of individual commenters to stay abreast of changes that could occur from time to time.
