Moderation Policy

This online dialogue allows you the opportunity to fill out custom text fields, which are publicly visible. The site therefore operates a moderation policy to ensure that your comments are appropriate and not harmful to others. Comments that include any of the following may be deleted:

* Threats or incitements to violence
* Obscenity
* Duplicate posts
* Posts revealing your own or others’ sensitive/personal information (e.g., Social Security numbers)
* Information posted in violation of law, including libel, condoning or encouraging illegal activity, revealing classified information, or comments which might affect the outcome of ongoing legal proceedings

Moreover, while we invite open participation and diverse viewpoints to be shared, the main goal of this dialogue is to answer the overarching questions about the U.S. national debt and possible paths to fiscal sustainability. Moderators therefore reserve the right to remove posts which are not “on topic” or do not address some aspect of that question. Our desire is to remove as few posts as possible while ensuring that a focused, constructive discussion takes place.
