Community Guidelines

Connecticut Public's social media channels are places for ongoing discussion of issues of public concern, just as we address those issues on air and broadcast listener phone calls. While we do moderate comments on social media, we encourage the vibrant expression of diverse views about our content, as well as civil and dignified speech, as much as possible. However, we do ask that members of our community please respect the following guidelines:

  • Be polite. Disagree without being disagreeable. Please avoid name calling and slander and keep the personal attacks out of the debate. Don't post anything that could be taken as threatening, harassing, sexist or racist.
  • Keep it clean. No obscenities, please.
  • Post only your own work and thoughts. You are welcome to add quotes with attribution, or link to other relevant articles to support your argument, but do not copy and paste lengthy excerpts from other people’s work or violate any copyright regulations.
  • Respect the privacy of others. Please don't post the contact information or private information of other people. And please don’t use this public forum for private communications.
  • Please stay on topic and keep your comments brief.
  • No advertising messages, recruiting, campaigning, soliciting or proselytizing. There are other more appropriate venues for that.
  • Report abuse and flag bad behavior when you see it.

Connecticut Public appreciates the news tips members of the public share with us. However, WNPR reserves the right not to publicize allegations, conspiracy theories and other information which we know to be false or unsubstantiated.

Comments are moderated but they are not changed or edited. Comments are subject to our Terms of Use. Connecticut Public and its affiliated digital products, including CTPublic.org and CPTV.org, will not publish comments that include slurs, foul language, threats or personal attacks. We will not post comments that use insulting or offensive nicknames or invented names. Any comment assumed to be spam will be deleted. Connecticut Public reserves the right to remove any comments we judge to be in violation of our community guidelines.

While we cannot guarantee that the bullies and bad actors, trolls, haters and flamers will not attempt to disrupt our reasonable, civil discourse, those posting comments of an inflammatory, disruptive nature should expect to be blocked.
