Comment Guidelines

Be a good cyber citizen! Comments should be on-topic, remain civil, and respect copyright and fair use laws. We welcome your input, and read all of your comments.

Comments are subject to moderation, meaning they must be approved before publishing. As readership has grown, D-Tree has experienced the occasional inappropriate comment. Mean spirited and ad hominem remarks will not be approved for publishing.  Remarks meant to threaten, harass or intimidate will be reported to appropriate authorities. Cyber-harassment is a crime in the state of Michigan, punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

Suggested edits and corrections are encouraged. We strive to be accurate and up-to-date! However, remarks that are meant to insult instead of inform will not be published. Democracy Tree, like all publications, is subject to the occasional human error and is therefore committed to a policy of prompt remedial action.

A reminder — D-Tree is a commentary — which naturally implies it contains observations and opinions from the point of view of the writer. If the reader disagrees, they are welcome to make a cogent case for their argument.

Thank you for participating in the conversation.
