- Disqus Comments -
One of the things we value at Beyond the Flag is fan interaction. And to do that we offer a very simple and interactive commenting system. Our commenting system is powered by Disqus which is a very popular platform for comments on websites because of their simplicity and social-media based interaction.
We would like to share a few ground rules with you just so that things don’t get out of hand and the comments are not abused. Please keep it clean, we are aware many people use profanity, but you never know who reads these articles and comments. It could be children after all! If a writer makes a mistake, don’t get rude and nasty about it. Just simply make a polite statement informing them they’ve made a mistake (such as “Hey Tom, I’ve noticed you made a small mistake in saying that Jeff finished 4th, he finished 14th.”). It’s human nature to make mistakes and it’s going to happen!
