Commenting Guidelines

Who we want to hear from

We want to hear from anyone who has thoughts on the products and topics we cover in our reviews and blog posts.

What we want to hear about

If you’ve used one of the products we’ve covered and have an opinion on it, share it. If you were hoping to find coverage of a product or category you don’t see, suggest it. If you think we’ve made a mistake or ought to rethink something, tell us. If you just really, really love a certain product or topic and want to talk about it, nerd out. If you have a question about something we’ve written or still aren’t sure what to get, ask away.

Our expectations for our commenters

We expect you to approach conversations in good faith and your fellow commenters with goodwill and the benefit of the doubt. We ask that you extend these same considerations to our work and the writers responsible for it. We expect you to abide by the moderation policy laid out below and to be custodians of the community. If you suspect that a comment is in violation of the moderation policy, flag it, and we’ll review it. If you think someone has made a great point, upvote their comment and tell them so.

What our commenters can expect from us

We promise to read every comment that comes in and to make a genuine effort to participate in as many conversations as we can. Although we can’t always reply, we promise to make sure that your feedback and questions get seen by our writers and editors. We promise to actively moderate our comments in accordance with the policy below to ensure that conversations are welcoming and helpful.
