Our Comments Policy

Lawfare has an unusual comments policy, about which readers should be aware before using the Facebook comments box that appears below each post. Lawfare itself does not take comments. It never has. It never will. We do, however, have a comments box from Facebook that allows readers to comment on posts in a fashion visible to their own Facebook friends. The idea is to permit discussion of Lawfare posts among communities of Facebook users. All of these comments are, by default, invisible to people other than the Facebook friends of the commenters. We reserve the right, in our sole editorial judgment, to make comments available to the wider community of Lawfare readers, but we generally will not do so. Comments take a great deal of time to moderate, and that's time better spent on our part producing Lawfare. Please do not post comments using this feature expecting them to be available to the public.
