Frequently Asked Questions
We only delete those comments that are abusive, off-topic, use excessive foul language, or include ad hominem attacks. We pre-moderate all comments on our site.
Q: I posted a comment. Why can't I see it on the site?
A: All comments are moderated after posting. Sometimes we're just not able to approve comments fast enough.
Q: Why am I blocked from commenting on PGA Diversity?
A: There are a few scenarios in which a commenter might be blocked:
- A comment is abusive, off-topic, uses excessive foul language, or includes an ad hominem attack
- If a commenter has previously posted comments that are abusive, off-topic, used excessive foul language, or include ad hominem attacks, a PGA Diversity moderator may decide to ban the commenter's IP address. This means the abusive commenter is banned from commenting on the site in the future, even if the later comments are not abusive. We ban IPs because the sheer volume of comments makes it too time consuming to individually delete comments written by someone with a pattern of abuse.
- If a commenter shares a computer or IP address with someone who has written abusive comments, it could result in a comment being blocked even if the commenter has never posted anything abusive. In the future, we plan on introducing a user log-in feature that will help mitigate this sort of situation.
Q: Can I include HTML in my comments?
A: We remove all html from comments to preserve formatting consistency.
