Comment Policy

At Indies Unlimited, we welcome dissenting viewpoints, vibrant discussion and spirited debate. We ask that people maintain an air of civility and mutual respect when commenting.

I.U. is not the place for political or religious commentary. Everyone is welcome here, but leave that stuff outside. There are plenty of other forums for those topics.

The use of language inconsistent with the safe-for-work rule, or comments that are inflammatory, mean-spirited, or provocative will be deleted.

Likewise, any comments containing slurs or epithets, or that demonstrate an insensitivity to issues of race, sex, religion, culture, or lifestyle will be deleted.

Off-topic comments will be deleted. Comments that may be considered to be advertising or contain a link to an outside website in an obvious effort to divert web traffic will be deleted. Any comments that fall under the categories listed in this Comment Courtesy article will be deleted.

Lengthy comments that would make a better guest post than comment will be deleted. If your comment is so intricate, eloquent, far-ranging, or so detailed that you can’t cover it in about 200 words, please consider submitting a guest post on the topic.

Please follow any special instructions as to content when posting on special features like Thrifty Thursday or Print Book Paradise. Commenters who exceed the requested information in those posts may have their comment deleted or edited to compliance.

For flash fiction challenges, only entry comments are allowed. Any commentary on the entries will be deleted.

We believe these guidelines provide an ample arena for productive discussion and constructive feedback. Indies Unlimited thrives on informed and civil conversation. Thanks for your cooperation.
