By leaving a comment, you agree to this Comment Policy.
Your comment will be published at the bottom of the article. Your name will be published but not your email address.
I may use information from your comment on an anonymous basis, so you cannot be identified, in later research or other articles.
Because your “Name” is published, consider using just your first name or your initials if you don’t want your full name to be visible or to be searchable eg on Google. If you accidentally used your full name, please leave another comment asking me to delete your surname.
It is my decision whether or not to publish comments and whether to edit them. As a general indication:
- I do not publish comments that I consider are irrelevant, offensive, unhelpful, promoting an unwise course of action, or simply unkind about other people who have commented.
- The aim of Debt Camel is to help people with debt problems. If your comment is not about this, for example if you are criticising people making affordability complaints, or you are a shareholder in a lender, it will not be published.
- If you leave many comments that are repetitive, I may stop publishing them.
- I may shorten long comments or put several of your comments into a single one. I will sometimes later move your comment to a more relevant page.
- I operate a policy that commenters are not allowed to criticise a junior employee at a firm by name, and are not allowed to name their Adjudicator at the Financial Ombudsman. I may edit your comment to delete a name.
- I sometimes delete old comments if I consider this will improve the experience of people reading these pages.
- I rarely publish the names of Claims Companies.
You don’t have to use your real email address. But if I contact you about a comment and you have used a false email or do not reply, I am likely to delete your comment.
My system automatically deletes any comments which contain bad language or spam or where you have tried to leave a comment that appears to come from me.
