Farm Journal Commenting Policy

Welcome to Farm Journal, your leading source of agriculture news. We welcome open and relevant discussion of our stories, and the comment section can be a great place to interact with others in the farm community. To ensure that everyone has a good time here, please stick to the following guidelines:

  • Be polite. There’s no need to be rude or disrespectful. Remember, there are people behind the screen. If you wouldn’t say it to someone in person, please don’t say it here.
  • Profanity will not be tolerated. Again, be polite!
  • Stay on topic. We appreciate and welcome criticism and thoughtful discussion, but comments that hold no relevance to the story or that are merely insulting will be deleted without exception.
  • No spam. Period. If we identify any comments as spam, they will be deleted immediately, and you will be banned from the site. No exceptions.

To put it simply, “don’t be a jerk.” If you fail to follow these guidelines, our moderators will remove the comment, and repeated offenses will get you banned from the site.

If you find any comments that violate our guidelines, please be sure to ‘flag’ or ‘mark as spam’ so that our moderators can review them. We appreciate your support!

Enjoy the discussion!
