Commenting & Discussion Policy

More

WSKG encourages community dialogue and welcomes your thoughts and comments, and hopes to host energetic, civil online conversation. This is the official discussion policy for everyone participating in WSKG’s social networking tools. All participants in WSKG.org’s social networking features, story/blog commenting, and other forums are required to follow these rules, in addition to the Terms of Use.

AS YOU POST, PLEASE KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND:

Try to be as clear and concise as possible. Keep your comments/questions focused on the topic at hand. We reserve the right to edit for brevity, clarity and other purposes.

Don’t use profanity, personal attacks or hate speech. If you can’t be polite, don’t say it. We allow discussion of controversial issues. We understand that some topics require blunt discussion, but please try to disagree without being disagreeable. Focus your remarks on positions, not personalities. No personal attacks, name calling, libel, defamation, or hate speech. And under no circumstances should you post anything that could be taken as threatening, harassing, bullying, obscene, pornographic, sexist or racist.

Anything you post should be your own work. You are welcome to link to relevant content and to quote limited amounts from other people’s work with attribution and any associated copyright notice and consistent with “fair use” principles of copyright law. But that doesn’t mean you can copy and paste wholesale. You must have the legal right to upload or download any content you upload to or download from the discussion board and/or blog comments.

Don’t post anything on the site posing as someone else.

Respect people’s privacy. Do not share anyone’s contact information in your comments or discussions.

Feel free to share your ideas and experiences about religion, politics and relevant products or services you’ve discovered. But this is not a place for advertising, promotion, recruiting, campaigning, lobbying, soliciting or proselytizing.

You are solely responsible for the content you post. WSKG is not responsible for the content or opinions posted by its users. We do not and cannot review all user content posted on this site. However, we have the right (but not the obligation) to review, screen, delete, edit and/or move any content posted.

Your comments may be used on-air.

Please do not use WSKG’s public forums for individual communications. If you have comments about WSKG, please don’t use the site discussion threads to air them. For issues regarding NPR editorial content or policies, write to the office of the ombudsman. To contact WSKG, use the WSKG contact form.

When all else fails, think “Golden Rule”: Treat others the way you’d like to be treated yourself.

Violation of these guidelines can result in removal of your comments or posting privileges.

By registering and posting on WSKG’s social networking sites, you agree to our Terms of Use.

 

DISCLAIMER

WSKG’s social networking sites may contain controversial or offensive material. The views expressed are those of the individual participants, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the staff or management of WSKG Public Broadcasting. To give feedback, please write to wskgcomment@wskg.org.

  1. Sorry if this isn’t the correct venue for this request–it isn’t clear to me how else to do it.
    I am writing to request that Gamut be emailed to me monthly. I will miss the print resource, but I can understand the need to save $50K.

    Thanks so much!

    • Hi Toni. Thanks for reaching out! We’ve passed your comment and email on to the correct person. In addition, to be clear, we will no longer produce GAMUT in any form. We have added your name and email to our list to receive the listings in an easily-printable format via email. You can read about our plans to provide the same information in different ways through an Audience Services department here.

  2. NPR is no longer for the people, as you once claimed to be. NPR is now one of the most biassed radio stations on air. It’s very difficult to listen to your station any more. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You sold out and you know it.
