Since the Toledo Free Press launched the current platform of our Website in 2008, we have allowed and encouraged reader comments. We feel that all readers deserve the opportunity to voice their opinions and viewpoints on the stories and subjects we cover.
Toledo Free Press encourages active and lively discussion by readers. While we prefer readers to use their true identities in publishing comments, we do allow anonymous comments as a way to ensure the flow of opinion without fear of potential retribution.
All comments are moderated, and typically reviewed and acted upon within a few hours of being posted. We expect all those who comment to:
- Focus their opinions and information on the topic(s) addressed in the stories.
- Be civil in their comments; refraining from personal, libelous, vulgar or threatening attacks on any story subjects and other commenters.
- Not blatantly promote their own or another’s products, services or company (such as what’s typically considered “spam” comments).
- Not intentionally represent other individuals or organizations, no matter the tone of the comment.
Toledo Free Press reserves the right to edit, delete and not approve comments that do not meet the above guidelines or other generally accepted practices for online comments.
Should you have any questions, comments or other feedback about this comment policy, please Contact Us.
