A Note from the Mods on Comment Practices

Hello Name Enthusiasts,

This is just a general reminder to please keep comments polite and respectful. It’s ok to be critical, but please try to do it in a kind and constructive manner. Everyone here usually does a great job of this and we’re grateful that these reminders are rarely needed. 

We rarely remove comments based on content; however, we would like to note that the BNW terms of service reserve the right to do so, and any comment that grossly violates this community's standards for civility and kindness will be deleted. We love that BNW has always been one of the most friendly, helpful and non-judgmental places on the internet, and we’d like to keep it that way.

I don't know if mods have this power, since it's not part of the forum, but is there any way for y'all to remove sibling name entries in namipedia? There's a swear word coupled with a racial slur on the entry for Clio. I came across it yesterday and couldn't figure out if there was a way to flag or report the page.

Also, thanks for everything you do to help make this such a great community! :)

Done. And I'm horrified that sometime wrote that and wonder how long it's been there. 

Thank you so much for mentioning this. If you ever see something that you believe needs moderator attention, please don't hesitate to email us at bnwmod at gmail dot com

Thanks!! I had to do a double-take when I saw it. I was so shocked and disgusted that somebody wrote that! From now on, if I notice anything amiss, I'll email the mods.
