  • Be courteous. Comments may not threaten or verbally abuse other members, use defamatory language, or deliberately disrupt discussions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages or "spam."  
  • Use respectful language. Like any community, the online conversation flourishes only when our members feel welcome and safe. Comments that use language that abuses or discriminates on the basis of race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual preference, age, region, disability, etc will not be posted.
  • Debate, but don't attack. In a community full of opinions and preferences, people always disagree. Rho encourages active discussions and welcomes heated debate on the blog, but comments considered personal attacks will not be posted.
