Comment moderation policy

We've designed the Twin Cities Streets for People website to be easy to use and filled with current and helpful information for citizens, public officials and any other parties interested in helping make our region more sustainable and friendly to the needs of people on foot, bike or transit.

All visitors can comment on any information found here. We are, however, a moderated forum.

We work hard to maintain a high level of quality and respectful interchange in our comments section. As such, we reserve the right to edit or delete posts that contain ad hominem attacks, unnecessary or uncreative profanity, off-topic posts, lengthy or poorly written rants, flat-earth arguments and comments that we feel don’t add any real value to the conversation that’s underway.

Commenters who use a real name or established identity and have participated for some time in the online community will generally be given much more leeway than those who post anonymously. If you’re a regular commenter, we encourage you to become a member of TC Streets for People (see here >).

We don't like spam (unless it's in a sandwich, and then not really that much). We will treat all messages that include unrelated links (to unrelated businesses or services) as spam and will delete them immediately.

We encourage debate and are happy to see opposing viewpoints intelligently and respectfully  expressed and cogently argued in the comments section - this is one of the best ways in which we may learn from each other.
