Commenting Policy

The Social Science Insights (SSI) blog is informed by professional training and expertise in social science. Comments and questions are very welcome, but please be sure to stick to these guidelines:

  • Discuss social science: the blog presents scientific evidence; happy to answer questions and clarify the issues discussed, but subjective or emotional responses that dismiss the science using personal attacks will not be published. You must present evidence if you want to critique the data and studies discussed
  • Be polite: this blog enforces a zero policy on abuse; such comments will be deleted without warning
  • Stay on topic: Comments that do not contribute to the discussion will not be published
  • Be aware of bias: this blog discusses social inequalities using scientific research; if this upsets you, this blog is not the right place for you. (Learn more about why people reject science, especially on gender inequality.)

Finally, please note that SSI cannot help with homework, assignments, theses and so on. Sorry but these requests will be deleted without a response.

That’s it – have fun! 🙂
