Comments may be rejected if they contain profanity, threats, hateful language, spam or advertisements for commercial or non-commercial enterprises. They may also be rejected if they are intended to bait others into responding (flame baiting), cause general disruption (trolling), contain ad hominem attacks or suggest that commenters should move to other locations (“you should move to” comments). Comments going off topic are subject to rejection depending on the topic of discussion and the severity of the tangent. Inserting personally identifying information or feigning more than one person by taking on different names/handles may also be grounds for comment rejection. The text of approved comments will usually not be modified in any way. In the rare circumstance that a comment is modified either before or after approval and except for character for character replacement, text indicating the redaction will mark the modification.
Comments may be rejected if they contain named condo/apartment building specific information or references especially if it is with denigrating intent. It is the general policy of Penn Quarter Living that named condo/apartment specific business is not within the domain of our site and such discussions should exclusively remain in the domain of the condo/apartment, its HOA, management and residents. Such matters, implicit or explicit, are best discussed in a named condo/apartment specific forum or context other than Penn Quarter Living.
Any comment is subject to rejection or modification at the discretion of Penn Quarter Living. Comments may be removed or redacted temporarily or permanently while their content is reviewed even if they have already been approved at some prior point in time and they have appeared on Penn Quarter Living. If approved, comments may take up to 48 hours or more to appear on our site.
All information, data, text, software, music, sound, photographs, graphics, video, messages, or any other materials whatsoever (collectively, “Content”), whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such Content originated.
