Commenting Tips

To ensure that your comment is automatically approved, please follow the following tips:

a. Write short comments. Do not write long essays.
b. If you have a long essay to write, kindly publish it somewhere else and provide a link here.
c. Do not use more than 2 hyperlinks in one comment. If you have to do so, kindly split your comment in parts and post separately.
d. If the comment is not directly relevant to the article, or demands a long text to be written, kindly post it elsewhere and provide link here.
e. To add youtube video, post the url of youtube in the comment. This may not work at times due to technical issues beyond our control. If that happens, simply post the url removing http:// so that keen visitors may directly copy and visit the video in youtube.
f. Do not write abuses in comments and do not post several comments one after another.
g. Comments section should be used for feedback on article and long discussions should be done on the FORUM.

We believe that these tips would help enable meaningful discussions on the site in a friendly manner.
