Feministing’s Commenting Policy & Community Standards

Over the years, Feministing’s commenting policy and the way we moderate comments and posts has changed – in fact, when we first launched the site over six years ago there was no moderation at all.  (As you can probably imagine, this ceased to be amusing after our traffic hit a certain point.)  We’ve constantly tried new models to see what works best for our readers – we’ve had light moderation, heavy moderation and everything in between.
