Commenting Guidelines

E-Cat World is a site that takes E-Cat/LENR seriously, and accepts it as a valid field of research, and a potentially useful energy source. ECW is not a venue where E-Cat/LENR/cold fusion skeptics are given free rein, or a place to debate whether E-Cat/LENR/cold fusion is real. Here we act uner the belief and assumption that E-Cat/LENR/cold fusion is a valid scientific phenomenon, an important topic, and one worthy of mature discussion.

This being the overall philosophy of the site, readers are invited to comment, but there are guidelines regarding comments, and moderation is used which can result in comments being deleted.

The following types of comments are subject to moderation:

  • Comments that state openly or by implication that LENR/cold fusion/E-Cat is a fraud or hoax
  • Comments of a deriding or mocking nature
  • Personal attacks on other commenters and/or other persons
  • Comments by those who continually make off-topic comments
  • Comments that could be considered defamatory, slanderous or libelous
  • Comments that are excessively obnoxious
  • Comments that include profanity
  • Needlessly repetitive comments
  • Comments arguing for or against political ideologies, parties, or candidates
  • Comments arguing for or against religious beliefs or practices

The content, context, tone of comments are taken into account when making decisions about moderation.

Not every comment goes into the moderation queue, but there are many that do. There is also an automatic spam filter in place, and occasionally, and sometimes, for unknown reasons, perfectly innocuous comments end up in the spam filter. The spam file is checked occasionally, and comments that do not violate the commenting guidelines are restored.
