Blog Policies

We encourage you to share your thoughts as they relate to the topic being discussed, but expect all comments to be courteous.

We recognize that the Internet is a 24/7 medium and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, we intend to review and post comments from 8:30 am – 5 pm ET Monday through Friday except for on federal holidays. We intend to review and post comments submitted at other times as soon as possible on the next business day.


To protect your privacy, do not include any information in your comment (e.g., your e-mail address or phone number) that could be used to identify you.

In some cases we ask you to provide your name and e-mail address, although providing either is optional. We request your name to make it easier to carry on a conversation. For this reason, we publish your name along with your comment. We ask for your e-mail address so that we can contact you if necessary. It is our policy not to publish your e-mail address.
