  • Comment Moderation — To reduce spam and ensure respectful debate, all comments posted to the Cutter Blog are moderated by internal staff. Approval times can vary so please be patient. We strive to get to all comments as quickly as we can.
  • Content Moderation — We do not moderate comments for content. If a comment follows the guidelines outlined on this page and is not obvious spam it will be approved.
  • Opposing Opinions — Conflict begets discussion, which furthers the knowledge and perspectives of all involved. Hence, we encourage you to post opposing viewpoints and opinions.
  • Language — To create a open forum for discussion, debate and collaboration, we reserve the right not to post comments that contain obscene, indecent, or profane language; contain threats or defamatory statements; or contain hate speech directed at race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion,
    or disability.
  • Length — Keep comments short and to the point. Break up your thoughts into paragraphs to keep it easy to read and respond. Remember white space makes comments easier to read on a computer screen.
