At China Daily News, we welcome thoughtful and respectful comments on our posts. The idea is that we all can learn from one another.
All of us are smarter than any one of us.
On the other hand, obnoxious, hateful, off-topic, and/or stupid comments add nothing of value and are harmful. So, if you are thinking of leaving a comment with ad-hominem attacks (name calling), straw-man arguments, profanity (no matter how mild you might think it is), or is off-topic, advertising of any kind, or in any other way does not add to the discussion at hand, just stop. If we, at our sole discretion, believe that your comment does not add to the discussion in any of the ways just described or in any other way, it will be deleted.
In addition, if you continue to leave non-value-added comments, your account will be banned from this site. Social media is already toxic enough; we don’t want to add to it here. You are free to disagree with our opinions and with other commenters; however, on this site we require that you disagree without being disagreeable (obnoxious, hateful, hurtful, vile, profane, etc.). We believe that you can, so we insist that you do when you comment here.
We sincerely appreciate thoughtful and respectful engagement with our readers, and we hope that you will take time to read our posts and let us know what you think.
