Comment Policy

We recognize that the Web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage resources (i.e. – your donations), moderating and posting comments should only be expected to occur during regular weekday business hours.

To maintain a respectful dialogue, we ask that you follow the guidelines of our comment policy below. In short:

  • Stay focused. All viewpoints are welcome, but comments should remain relevant to the content of the post.
  • Be respectful. Personal attacks, profanity, and aggressive behavior are prohibited. Instigating arguments in a disrespectful way is also prohibited.
  • Tell the truth. Spreading misleading or false information is prohibited.
  • No spam. Repeated posting of identical or very similar content in a counter-productive manner is prohibited — this includes posts aggressively promoting services or products.

We retain the discretion to determine which comments violate our comment policy. We also reserve the right to edit, remove and/or not allow comments to get posted, especially to prevent our readers from inadvertently disclosing private information. The views expressed within posted comments do not necessarily reflect those of the American Diabetes Association.

Reporters are asked to send questions to the necessary media office through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Reporter questions will not be posted nor answered.
