Comment Policy

The Michigan Journal wishes to be able to provide a public forum for readers to comment. This allows for many points of view to be shared. We believe that this plays an important part in upholding both freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

Though comments on many articles will foster these principals, there may be topics or articles that create controversy. We believe that negative comments and personal attacks detract from constructive discussion and sidetrack discussion of the pertinent issue(s). We therefore reserve the right to remove any comment without notice and reserve the right to close comment threads.

We do however acknowledge that controversial and/or unpopular viewpoints are protected under the first amendment.

The Michigan Journal does not endorse comments made by non-staff members.
