Comment Policy

Outdoor Troop is a place for people to learn all about the outdoors, meet other outdoors enthusiasts, and enjoy a community of people with common interests.

Unfortunately, some people turn into bullies online.  To make Outdoor Troop a friendly community, we simply delete such comments. Consequently, we have received countless emails and comments from our community members who praise us for creating this type of friendly environment.

Great!  The whole purpose for allowing comments here is to allow outdoor-types to share their opinions and knowledge.  Please speak up if you disagree with the author of a post or another commenter; HOWEVER, you must be polite and you must be friendly.

Look through the site and you’ll see that there are lots of comments disagreeing with the author or another commenter.  We welcome those comments!  But if a commenter disagrees and does so in an impolite or unfriendly way…. you guessed it!  The comment will be deleted.
