Comments Policy

How do comments work at Reprobate?

Reprobate is a forum for the stimulating exchange of both ideas, views and opinions. At the end of most articles you will find an invitation to post a comment, and participate in this exchange.

Please note that you are giving Reprobate the rights to distribute your comment in perpetuity, and that you take responsibility for the contents, including the accuracy and legality of your statement.

How do I register to comment?

Simply fill in the required fields (name and email address) to create a profile and you are ready to go. Your email address will not be published.

Why does Reprobate want to know my identity?

While there is an important role for anonymous comment in the age of the Internet, there is also a place for standing by your words. This is one such place. We welcome the use of an alternative name here, so long as it is not designed to defraud or defame, and so long as there is a connection to your “real life” should that ever be required.

Reprobate will never publish your contact information; however, we may contact you via your email address to attempt to resolve a problem. Reprobate will not provide your contact information to a third party unless you opt in to share it, or we are required by law to disclose it. Consider this if you choose to say things here that could be dangerous to you under a body of laws at some point in time.

For additional information about how Reprobate collects and uses information, read our Privacy Policy.

Offensive Submissions

Any comments, images, videos or other content you submit or upload to Reprobate qualify as “Submissions”.

By providing a Submission, you represent and warrant that your Submission is original to you and does not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third parties, including, without limitation, any intellectual property rights and rights of publicity or privacy. You also represent and warrant that your Submissions do not include nudity, partial nudity, or adult content, and are not obscene, defamatory, graphically violent, physically threatening, or intended for any illegal purpose. You agree that your Submissions will not include software viruses or any other computer code designed to interfere with the functionality of or obtain any nonpublic information from any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment.

Reprobate is not responsible for content that it does not create. However, Reprobate may remove comments and submissions that are off-topic, repetitive, promotional, harassing, vulgar, illegal in purpose or just plain moronic.

Blocking participants

Comments writers who repeatedly have their comments removed as described above, or who have otherwise proven to be a general nuisance, will have their access to make comments suspended.
