PFR Commenting Policy

Comments of this nature are not allowed at Pro Football Rumors:

  • Attacks or insults towards other commenters, the post author, journalists, teams, players, or agents.
  • Inappropriate language, including swearing and related censor bypass attempts, lewdness, insults, and crude terms for body parts, bodily functions, and physical acts. Overall, we don’t want any language that a parent would not want their kid to see.
  • Juvenile comments or extensive use of text message-type spelling.
  • Writing comments in all or mostly caps.
  • Spam-type links or self-promotion.
  • Comments about how you’re sick of this topic or it’s not newsworthy.
  • No inappropriate avatars or images are allowed.
  • Anything else we deem bad for business.

If you see comments that fit the above criteria, please flag them and/or contact us. Bans may be handed out liberally by our moderators, without second chances. Remaining civil is not that difficult though, and most commenters have no problems doing so, as well as helping rein each other in. We are grateful for all of our longtime commenters and readers, though this policy applies equally regardless of tenure. This policy is always available at the bottom of the site, and will be re-posted monthly.

    You know what, Luke? There ain’t many people that comment on here, anyways. Why is that?

    • ProFootballRumors

      Fair point. MLBTR had a headstart of a few years on us, so we’re still hopeful of eventually growing to that point. We’ve seen commenting increase steadily on Hoops Rumors within the 2-3 years since it launched — hopefully the same thing happens here.
