The Fine Print

by Suzanne Calvin

Before you leap, feet-first, please read the fine print (a.k.a. The Dallas Opera blog Comments Policy):

The Dallas Opera blog is designed to give staff, patrons, opera-lovers, and the opera-curious a lively forum for the exchange of ideas. Your supportive or dissenting thoughts, comments, opinions and exchanges are encouraged; however, please express yourself in a reasonably reasonable manner.

The following are Dallas Opera blog No-Nos:

  • Potentially libelous statements
  • Personal attacks or threatening language
  • Spam or commercial promotions
  • Hyperlinks to unrelated materials
  • Comments that have no bearing on the topic
  • Plagiarized materials (stealing is stealing, y’all)
  • Private, personal information published without obtaining consent
  • And, the BIG one: No hate talk or excessively obscene language.

Now, what do we mean by “excessively obscene?” We like the Supreme Court’s definition; we’ll know it when we see it.

By posting a comment, you agree to indemnify The Dallas Opera, its officers and employees from and against all liabilities, judgments, damages and costs (including attorney’s fees) incurred as a result of the content you post. This forum is intended for the personal use and entertainment of members of The Dallas Opera family and may not be used for commercial purposes.

The Dallas Opera reserves the right to monitor all content posted on the site and to modify or delete any messages or postings it deems offensive, defamatory, in violation of copyright, trademark, or any other intellectual property rights belonging to a third party, or, in any way inappropriate.

The Dallas Opera reserves the right to edit all feedback and other commentary but will not be held responsible or liable for content posted on this site.

If you do not agree with the preceding terms, do not post any comments or make any other use of this blog as violation of the terms can lead to legal liability.

Thank you!
