Comment Policy

Talk About Watches has spent considerable time and expense to include in the functionality of our site a fairly advanced commenting system to allow you (the reader) to be able to leave comments in regards to the article contents, product reviews, etc. Our policy in regards to this is quite simple. Don’t be a jerk. Just that simple. You don’t have to agree with the author(s) of the article. You don’t have to agree with the statements about and conclusions reached on product reviews. You don’t have to agree with other commenters. Just don’t be a jerk about disagreeing.  If you are, your comment will be removed. If you persist, you will be removed.

While we appreciate each comment, if your comment does not follow our comment policy, it will be removed. Continuous abuse of the policy will result in permanent ban of the IP address, domain, and the email used. Please do understand that the Talk About Watches staff takes this topic very seriously and we will act aggressively in regards to it.

While trying to keep things as simple as possible, our lawyers do still require us to include the following:

Visitors may post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages.

Additional Policies

In addition to our “don’t be a jerk” policy and the legal requires from our lawyers (both posted above), there are specific items regarding the software we are using to allow you to leave comments.

Freedom of Speech?

If, for some reason, you have left a comment and it was either not published and/or deleted for not following the Comment Policy as outlined above and you feel it necessary to fire off a well crafted missive concerning your “freedom of speech”. Please don’t. If you do, they will be immediately deleted and you will be ignored. If you do so, you are either woefully ignorant concerning your freedom of speech protections or you have an ulterior motive in making such a claim. In short, the freedom of speech protections that you have are protections against the government. They are NOT protections against a privately owned and operated website (such as Talk About Watches). Even though we may provide you a means to be able to comment on our site, it does not mean that you have a “right” to be able to comment on our site. We would advise, in cases such as these, that you use our good friend Google to learn more about your constitutionally protected rights and where/how they apply.
