Indy Comment Policy

Indy Comment Policy*

The Indy invites well-informed remarks that are relevant to an article. We welcome your advice, criticism, analysis and unique insights into the issues of the day, using the Leave a Reply box at the bottom of each article. With this feature we aim to provide a space where our readers can exchange intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

In order to be posted comments must:

  • be submitted / signed with the full real name of the writer
  • include a working email address
  • be civil and not include personal attacks
  • be factually accurate

Comments to the Indy are moderated and writers should expect a brief lag between submission and posting. While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderation decisions are subjective, and carefully made by our moderators. We do not systematically fact check comments; however, those comments containing obviously inaccurate information, misinformation, disinformation, or unverifiable information will be rejected. If a comment presents factual claims that cannot be readily verified we reserve the right to not publish.

* Our comment policy is modeled after that of the New York Times and we thank them for the model language that we have borrowed.
