Terms of Use Guidelines

Unlike the Wild West of most of the Internet, we have a very strict comment and terms of use policies at Bros4America and our Bros4Hillary support group on Facebook. If you’re an asshole, you’ll be banned. Sorry, assholes!

That, most important, statement out of the way, here’s more you should know whether you’re a regular commenter or new to the site or Facebook group.

If your comment does not immediately appear on the site after posting, it may have been flagged for review. There are a number of things which will get your comment flagged for review, we ask that you please keep that in mind before resubmitting the comment multiple times or contacting us about it.

  • We enjoy curse words but generally find slurs unacceptable. Sometimes these words are used as part of a good discussion, or we will leave them up to make an example out of you.
  • Comments can also be flagged for review by our readership (please do not abuse this option for other users you simply disagree with, it makes our moderater’s jobs a lot harder).

Here are some things which will get your comment deleted.

  • Duplicative posts. Think you’re the only one who posted that link? You’re not. No one wants to see the same thing over and over again. Don’t take it personal. Someone beat you to it.
  • Fake news. We have a policy against it. Read up on it.
  • Personal attacks against another commenter or the writer of the post/website. This can run from name calling to sentences which include the words “people like you” or statements which begin “I bet you” or “you must/probably” etc. This is regardless of what “side” you’re on.
  • Jokes or aggressive negative comments on the aesthetic appearance of a person (commenters, writers, and folks mentioned in an article alike).
  • Hate speech or other clearly intentional jerk behavior. This includes, but is not limited to: the use of the word feminazi or a comments which denigrates women, feminism or feminists, the LGBTQ community; broad imprecations or assumptions based on race; and anything that amounts to “ugh the gays,” “ugh liberals,” “ugh, fangirls,” etc.

Here are some things which will get your account banned.

  • Engaging in any of the previously mentioned delete-worthy behaviors consistently and as part of a clear pattern OR presenting a particularly egregious example of one of those behaviors as a first comment (New to the site? Stopped by just to say something horrible? We don’t need you here.) We normally give one warning to a user before banning unless a pattern of behavior is clear. However, if a user commits one of these behaviors as their very first comment, we’ll skip that step. Disqus grants us the ability to see a commenter’s patterns of behavior on other Disqus-enabled sites as well, and we do not hesitate to consider behavior on other sites when determining whether to ban.
  • It is at the editors’ discretion to ban anyone whom they determine to be a detriment to the atmosphere of the comments section, the site in general, and our regular readers.

There will be some who look at these rules and think that the moderators of Bros4America have too much power to shut down conversations. We have two responses to this.

First: It’s our site, we get to make the rules. We’re not taking away your freedom of speech by deleting/banning you. You can take your anger elsewhere, we don’t want it. And, from a legal perspective, your constitutional rights don’t apply to non-government actors. We are not the government, so fuck off.

Did we just violate our own Terms of Use Guidelines? (Spoiler: nope).

We foster interesting, free discussion for all our members, not just the loudest, most assertive, scariest ones. You can be a poor conversationalist, present a different viewpoint, or talk loudly and brashly. Nobody likes you, but feel free. That being said, if you threaten, insult, derail, use slurs or epithets, we reserve the right to show you the door, and yes, silence you.

Not today, Satan.

Second: We ask everybody who comes to Bros4America to remember that conversations require listening as well as speaking. And we are firm believers in the fact that banning a commenter only prevents them from speaking, not from listening.

A note to our regular readers:

We love you! Bros4America wouldn’t be what it is without your awesome support. As we mentioned above, flagging comments which violate our policy is a great help but please take this responsibility seriously. Flagging a user who isn’t really causing trouble but who you personally feel is just being obtuse is not a good use of this power. Also, engaging with users who are clearly trolls may be fun for some of you but causes us larger headaches (especially with overly large threads). Flag and move on.

Privacy Policy:

Bros 4 America ("Bros4America") operates and may operate other websites. It is Bros4America's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Bros4America collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Bros4America's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Bros4America's visitors use its website. From time to time, Bros4America may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Bros4America also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs/sites. Bros4America only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Bros4America's websites choose to interact with Bros4America in ways that require Bros4America to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Bros4America gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Bros4America are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Bros4America collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Bros4America. Bros4America does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Bros4America may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Bros4America may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Bros4America does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Bros4America discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Bros4America's behalf or to provide services available at Bros4America's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Bros4America's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Bros4America will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Bros4America discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Bros4America believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Bros4America, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Bros4America website and have supplied your email address, Bros4America may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Bros4America and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Bros4America takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns.

Bros4America visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Bros4America's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Bros4America's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Bros4America, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Bros4America goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Bros4America may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
