Tumblr Comment Policy

You are encouraged to share your comments and ideas, and share our posts with your followers by liking or reblogging. Please be aware of the following policies for the National Archives’ tumblr blogs:

  • NARA will delete comments that contain abusive, vulgar, offensive, threatening or harassing language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups.
  • NARA will delete comments that are clearly off-topic, that promote services or products, or that promote or oppose any political party, person campaigning for elected office, or any ballot proposition.
  • Gratuitous links to sites are viewed as spam and may result in the comment being removed.
  • Your comments are welcome at any time. We will moderate comments between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. We intend to moderate comments submitted at other times as soon as possible on the next business day.
  • Communications made via the blog will in no way constitute a legal or official notice or comment to the NARA or any official or employee of NARA for any purpose.
  • The content of all comments is immediately released into the public domain, so do not submit anything you do not wish to be broadcast to the general public.
  • Do not post personally identifiable information such as social security numbers, addresses and telephone numbers. Comments containing this information will be removed from the blog.
  • NARA does not discriminate against any views, but reserves the right to remove posted comments that do not adhere to these standards.

Members of the media are asked to pose your questions to the NARA Public Affairs Office through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions here as comments. Media questions or comments will not be posted. NARA Public Affairs can be reached at 202-357-5300 or public.affairs@nara.gov.
