We may also disclose aggregated non-personal information to third parties for marketing purposes.
We ask our readers to express opinions in a manner respectful to the readers and writers of CJR. Criticism of ideas is strongly encouraged, but personal, ad hominem attacks will result in deletion of posted comments and, potentially, banning of the individual user.

Comments that libel or defame any other individual or party;
Comments that are abusive, that threaten or harass another individual, are overly antagonistic, deliberately inflammatory, or ad hominem in nature.
Comments that contain excessive punctuation or capitalization designed solely to pump up the volume of a post.
Comments which CJR and parties contracted by CJR deem to be otherwise objectionable, inappropriate, off-topic, or offensive.
CJR reserves the right to remove users / commenters permanently for any of the following:
Violating any of the rules above more than once.

Using language CJR deems to be offensive or obscene in one’s username.
