Comment Policy

Discussion of the annotated resources is encouraged on the Annotated Bibliography website and search application.  

The board members of the nonprofit organization behind the Annotated Bibliography, Scholarly Works on Christian Science,  believe that we are all called to act in the world with kindness and humility, showing respect and compassion toward our fellow beings. Ensuring that these values are respected in the discussions taking place on this website is a priority.  Name calling, unkind remarks, threats, use of profanity, and personal attacks are not okay.

Where the line is drawn is totally up to the ABCS comment moderator.

Authors of comments deemed as inappropriate may, if time allows, be contacted and offered the opportunity to edit their comment to better conform to this comment policy. At other times inappropriate comments may simply be deleted without notice.

A person attempting to repeatedly post inappropriate comments will be banned without notice.


No solicitation of products, services, or similar is allowed.  Mentioning a specific book, website, or product is fine if it relates to the topic under discussion, but including the URL to an online store or a product for sale is not.  Providing a URL to an organization or personal website is usually okay, as long as the content of that website is relevant to the subject of the page on which the comment appears. The determination as to relevance of a URL is totally up to the ABCS comment moderator. (Note: Clickable links are not enabled on comments.)

Special Note:


The views of those who leave comments on the annotations should not be construed to represent the views of Scholarly Works on Christian Science, nor any type of endorsement.
