Blog Comment Policy

We want to foster an active and engaged community at DBI and welcome all comments from blog readers.

However, we also want to ensure that these comments are useful and bring value to the community. With that said, we will remove these types of comments:

  • Promotional comments: If a comment is deeded to be promotional, we will remove it from the site. Specifically any comment that is “spam,” or off-topic.
  • Harassing comments: Comments need to be respectful towards our contributors and those leaving comments. Specifically, any comment that is defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, or misleading is not allowed.


Links must be relevant. For the most part, linking to another site is fine as long as it adds value to the conversation. Linking to other sites that have nothing to do with the blog post is considered spam and will be deleted.

You grant DBI a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant us the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, a book, a video, or presentation.

If you have any questions on the commenting policy, feel free to contact us.
