Comments Policy

The Tech Task Force is proud to be a place where members of the community can exchange opinions and information.

Two Rules

We really only have two rules:

  1. Be respectful
  2. Use your name

Use just your first name if you like. Your email address will never be published.

No Commercial Links

One more rule:

  • No comment spam

Comment spam is a business or commercial link inside the comment.

Don’t Worry, It’s Safe

To preserve the respectful tone of community commentary, we actively monitor the comment stream. We welcome dissenting opinions, even sharp debate. We just ask that everyone be polite. After all, we’re neighbors.

Thanks for commenting on Cary TTF!
