At SparkFun, we believe strongly in freedom of speech and open discourse. Because we operate a public forum for discussion and want to foster a welcoming, helpful, and inclusive community, we're obligated to make moderation decisions that balance those values with other concerns.
The Internet is full of places where you can say pretty much anything you want. Because we care about our community, we're sometimes going to decide that it's not ok to say things here. That doesn't mean we don't respect your right to express yourself. It just means you might have to find a more appropriate venue for what you want to say.
We will generally not edit comments, except to fix broken links or markup where the user's intent is clearly visible.
We will sometimes hide comments, and in extreme cases revoke commenting privileges or permanently disable accounts, if the following guidelines are violated:
Finally, please remember that, though we're doing our best here, we're going to mess up sometimes. If you feel we've handled an issue poorly, let us know (there's a feedback form down there at the bottom of the page) and we'll try to address your concerns.
