Community rules – MTL Blog

Our comments section is a place to promote self-expression, free speech, and positivity. We encourage discussion and debate, but our pages should remain a safe space where everyone feels comfortable and the environment is respectful.

In order to make this possible, we monitor comments to prevent spam, hate speech, violence and vulgarity from entering our pages. Comments are moderated according to our Entry Guidelines, detailed below.

Please note that Narcity Media does not endorse the opinions expressed in the comments section of an article. Narcity Media has the right to remove comments, ban or suspend any user without notice, or close the comments section of a story at any time.

First and last names will appear with each comment and the use of pseudonyms is prohibited. By commenting, you acknowledge that Narcity Media has the right to use and distribute your content on our properties.

  • Hate speech: Any comments that incite violence or target a person because of their race, ethnic origin, religion, political opinions, physical abilities, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc. is strictly prohibited. Diversity and inclusion is part of Narcity’s DNA, and we want our community to know that we do not condone this behavior.
