Comment Policy

There’s a lot going on in Sacramento that starts discussions at the water cooler, at lunch, and here at the North Sac Beat.

We welcome everyone’s political and ideological points of view. Still, there may be times when we need to delete a comment or two.

Borrowing rules from The Huffington Post, we will only delete comments that:

  • Are abusive, off-topic, or use excessive foul language.
  • Use ad hominem attacks, including those celebrating the death or illness of any person (including public figures).
  • Contain racist, sexist, homophobic, or any other slurs.
  • Are solicitations and/or advertising for personal blogs and websites.
  • Identical comments posted elsewhere on the site (e.g. thread spamming).
  • Those posted with the explicit intention of provoking other commenters or staff at North Sac Beat.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
