Comments that contain links are always moderated

All comments that contain links will be held for moderation, even if you have previously left a comment on the site. This allows us to filter out links to inappropriate sites and spammers.

Comments that contain pitches for products or services

We frequently feature products on our site, and we would be happy to consider your product for a review, sponsored post or giveaway. Please contact us for more information about promotional opportunities. We will delete all comments selling products or services.
