Editorial Viewpoint

The basic orientation of this site leans towards the center-right, but we have representatives of a wide variety of editorial viewpoints posting here. All posts represent the views of their authors, and are not necessarily representative of the views of the editor or owner of BNN.

BNN authors are asked to be moderate and civil in their postings. Very strong ideas can be expressed in very temperate language, and we encourage an atmosphere of debate and mutual respect. Writers and commenters are encouraged to apply the Golden Rule in their dealings with one another, and to assume that the folks they are arguing with are also human beings.

If you believe that something you read on BNN is offensive or factually incorrect, then please leave a comment about it on the post in question. You do not need to register at the site to write a comment.

Editing and Posting of Stories

BNN is a blogger-edited community. Final editing authority is held by BNN’s principal editor, but ordinarily the editing of stories is left to the individual author. If you believe a post is sufficiently problematic as to warrant its removal, please send an e-mail to the editor. Please do not e-mail the editor with ordinary corrections; if you believe a story to be inaccurate, then post your information as a comment so that everyone can see and judge for themselves. The blogosphere is a jointly-policed environment; please do your part to pick up litter and keep things tidy.

Comment Policy

Comments are welcome on the BNN site. Commenters are requested to refrain from personal attacks, name-calling, profane language, or other uncivil behavior. If you are not able to comment within that framework, then we ask that you refrain from commenting on the BNN site. Commenters unable or unwilling to abide by this policy will be regretfully banned from the site.

We reserve the right to refuse any comments, and maintain the rights to ban commenter’s.

Advertising Policy

All advertisements on BNN should be family-friendly. If you see an advertisement which you believe violates this policy, please contact the editor.
