Our Official Policy On Comments

We are thrilled to provide a forum for yogis, recovering or not, to discuss the stories and pieces we post on our site. We welcome a diverse array of opinions and perspectives, and we don’t judge on grammar, spelling or vocabulary — even at its most colorful. That said, we’ve been pressed to put our comments policy in writing, so here it is:

Don’t be an asshole.

Yup, that’s our entire comments policy! The thing is, “asshole” is a pretty subjective label, and someone has to make the call. That “someone” is us. If we feel that a comment is in any way a personal attack on (or by) one of our writers, a figure in the yoga world, or another commenter, we reserve the right to “unpublish” that comment. If we take one of your comments down, we will always let you know, and we will usually mention it in the comment string, just to be fair.

That said, this is not a democracy so much as a moderated forum. Please use respect for your fellow human beings, and if you can’t be calm and mature about things, pretend you are calm and mature. Thank you.

By the way, we have a 1,000-character limit on comments, in order to keep the conversation flowing. If you have a lot to say, consider submitting your point of view.
