Comments Policy

The purpose of this blog is to discuss topics related to the Collaborative Research on Addiction at NIH (CRAN).  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) welcomes your comments and responses.

Comments are reviewed before posting.  Debate and disagreement are welcome, but mutual respect and politeness must be maintained. Comments that are off-topic, uncivil, promoting a product, or promoting drug use will not be posted.  Multiple comments that repeat the same point may not be posted.  Because comments are moderated, there may be a delay before comments appear on the site.  Posts will be open for comments for 60 days.

Comments will not be posted if they:

  • Contain vulgar language, personal insults, or offensive comments about others (based on ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, intelligence, or any other personal attacks).

  • Promote any services or products, are clearly off topic, or make unsupported assertions or accusations. Comments that include a link or URL to a personal or commercial Web site will not be posted.

  • Voice support for drug use or any illegal activity.

  • Include personal identifying information (PII) such as phone numbers, email addresses, etc. The NIH does not collect PII.

The views expressed within posted comments may not necessarily reflect those of the NIH or the federal government.
