Reader Comments Policy

The Coconut Grove Spotlight is committed to fostering an engaging and constructive dialogue with our readers. We believe that reader comments can enhance the overall experience and contribute valuable perspectives to our local news coverage. To maintain a respectful and productive community, we have established the following guidelines for reader comments:

  1. Be Respectful: Comments should be constructive, and free of personal attacks, hate speech, or abusive language. Disagreements are welcome, but they should be expressed in a civil manner.
  2. Stay on Topic: Comments should be relevant to the article or topic being discussed. Off-topic or irrelevant comments may be rejected or removed.
  3. Avoid Misinformation: As they say, you’re entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts. Comments are an opportunity to share factual information not unverified claims or conspiracy theories.
  4. Refrain from Advertising: Commercial advertisements, solicitations, or promotional content unrelated to the article’s topic are not permitted in the comments section.
  5. Moderation and Enforcement: The Coconut Grove Spotlight reserves the right to moderate, edit, or remove any comments that do not adhere to these guidelines. Repeated violations may result in the suspension or banning of a user’s ability to comment.
  6. Read the Constitution: Any unhappiness with our enforcement of the above polices is NOT a violation of your First Amendment rights. Confused? Read the Constitution.

If you have any questions about the Coconut Grove Spotlight’s comments policies or editorial policies in general, or to complain about inappropriate posts, please contact us at [email protected].
