Community standards

There are only three rules we ask you to bear in mind if you want to comment on an article:

Read before you comment

The only way to have a fruitful discussion of an article is if the commenters have read it.

Try to keep it relevant

In addition to reading the article, we also ask you to keep the discussion relevant to the topic at hand.

No personal attacks, no hate speech

Personal attacks, such as insults or threats, as well as hate speech will not be tolerated and will result in a removal of the comment and a permanent ban of the commenter.
