New Media Commenting Policy

Consistent with Department of the Interior (DOI) policy, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will allow all comments on public new media pages and will not alter or edit them in any way, except under certain instances noted below.  Authorized BLM employees maintaining public new media pages should frequently monitor pages and delete comments pursuant to the disclaimer below:

We welcome your comments and hope that our conversations here will be useful, informative and courteous.  You are fully responsible for the content of your comments. We do not discriminate against any view, but we reserve the right to delete any of the following: violent, obscene, profane, hateful, or racist comments that threaten or defame any person or organization; solicitations, advertisements, or endorsement of any financial, commercial, or nongovernmental agency; comments that suggest or encourage illegal activity; multiple, successive off-topic posts by a single user; repetitive posts copied and pasted by multiple users.

Comments in clear violation are to be deleted.

All official BLM new media sites must link to this commenting policy and disclaimer.
