Community guidelines


WhyDev aims to promote open and participatory discussions about development, and we love to see readers get fired up about the articles we post. Please, comment often! But to keep this civil, we ask that you adhere to the following community guidelines in your comments:

  • No spam
  • No racism, sexism, homophobia or other hate speech
  • No personal attacks
  • No promotion of commercial products
  • No threatening language
  • Nothing that could constitute slander, libel or defamation

Our note on profanity:

Does profanity help you express yourself? That’s fine. When you see a really terrible development idea, it’s hard not to swear. We know. You may use profanity in comments to the extent that it helps you make a point. BUT we will not tolerate excessive profanity, or profanity directed the author or other commenters.

We reserve the right to edit or delete comments that violate any of the above guidelines.
