You are welcome to share your thoughts on the Mexicanist, but we ask that you keep your comments relevant, helpful, and kind. Before leaving a comment, please read our community guidelines and comment policy.

Hello and welcome to the Mexicanist. Subscribers have access to comment sections on the majority of our articles, and we hope you enjoy and contribute to the lively discussions around our stories.

  1. To post a comment on an article, you must be a subscriber.
  2. We encourage discussion on the article's subject, but abuse, bad language, and spam will be deleted automatically. Please adhere to our community guidelines.
  3. If you spot a remark that you believe violates our rules, please report it to our moderators and help keep the conversation civil.

How to comment

To leave a comment on the Mexicanist, you must be a subscriber. Learn more about our Cookie and Privacy Policies.

Most articles permit commenting, but not all. Text and links may be used in comments, and you have five minutes to modify your text after publishing. You can reply to another comment and yours will appear underneath.

After an article is published, comments are preserved permanently. Occasionally, comment threads will be closed if the community fails to maintain a civil and on-topic conversation.

Offensive language will be automatically filtered out of user comments. If you use profanity, your comment will not be published.

Our moderators will evaluate reported comments and remove any that violate our rules, if necessary. We just remove comments without editing them. This is a subjective procedure, but the judgment of the moderator is final.

Full commenting guidelines

In the comments area, we want our readers to be able to debate, share anecdotes, and discuss our content. We promote pertinent, knowledgeable, witty, and even hilarious dialogue. Here are five principles that we require all commentators to follow to maintain a high-quality comment section for everyone:

Name-calling, insults, and threats made against other users and writers will be deleted. We do not accept any form of religious abuse, racism, sexism, homophobia, minority abuse, or hate speech. In the comments area, profanity (foul language) may be automatically screened and removed.

No potentially defamatory remarks about persons, corporations, or organizations are allowed, nor is content that violates the privacy or data rights of others. Do not submit any photos or content that violate copyright.

Any comments containing conspiracy theories and/or intentionally false material that might be harmful to third parties will result in a temporary or permanent suspension of commenting privileges.

If a comment is judged irrelevant to the article it is submitted under, it will be removed. Any post that intentionally promotes a business or product will be deleted. Additionally, repeated spam-like information can be eliminated.

Commentary that impersonates other users or public figures will be removed. Additionally, offensive usernames will be removed/canceled.

At the Mexicanist, we want our readers to engage with our articles and to debate and discuss the subjects highlighted. Please let us know if you believe a remark violates the standards. Moderation is predominantly reactive.

The comments area is where you may develop a community of readers, where you can set the topic and engage in conversation with other readers. We request that you foster an environment that is courteous, intellectual, and welcoming to others.

All material is subject to our Terms and Conditions, and we retain the right to delete any content, comments, or commenting privileges at any time, without notice or explanation.

Please be aware that continuous violations of the house rules or Terms of Service may result in a permanent ban on commenting.
