Discussion Rules

All participants using this site’s social networking features such as, story/blog commenting, must agree to these rules, in addition to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for this website.

Please be courteous. Brown-Forman welcomes discussion of controversial issues. We understand there will be times we will not agree with one another, but please remain courteous and focus your remarks on positions, not personalities or personal attacks. And under no circumstances should you post anything that could be taken as threatening, harassing, bullying, obscene, pornographic, sexist or racist.

Don’t use obscenities — even if the word in question is often used in conversation. This is a public forum and everyone should feel comfortable participating.

Post only your ideas. We love the openness of the internet but we’re really big on respecting the IP rights of others. So, feel free to express yourself, link to relevant content if you like or to quote limited amounts from other people’s work, consistent with “fair use” principles of copyright law. If you do include such quotes or works, please use as little as possible to make your point, provide proper attribution and include associated copyright notices.

Please focus on the topic. Brown-Forman is interested in your comments surrounding alcohol issues and wishes to share our views with you. Do not use this public forum as a means to campaign or solicit others.

Keep your comments brief. Your comments should be 400 words or less and Brown-Forman reserves the right to edit for brevity, clarity and other purposes.

Please respect the privacy of others. When writing a comment, do not share yours or anyone else’s personal information via this public forum. This would include but not limited to: phone numbers, email or mail addresses, birth dates, etc.

Please note that if submitting a form letter generated by an organization or advocacy group, it will be subject to the same rules and guidelines as individual posts, which includes reviewing for relevancy to the topic, obscenities, and length. If multiple posts with the same/similar content are submitted, only one will be posted if in accordance with the other discussion rules.

If you want to know even more about what is and isn’t allowed on Brown-Forman.com, please see our Terms of Use.
