Commenting Policy

Welcome to Total Music Awards! We love to have spirited conversations about the Grammys, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Billboard charts, and everything else related to popular music.

We have a “no trolls / no stans” commenting policy.

What’s the reason for this?

Trolls, obviously, kill respectful discussion and derail the conversation. Any comments containing insults, name calling, or which are otherwise uninformed to the point of borderling trolling, will not be published.

Likewise, stans kill intelligent debate because these fans believe their favorite artists can do no wrong. They typically aren’t able to have an objective and nuanced discussion. We will not publish comments which appear to be from stans who are mindlessly promoting or supporting an artist.

This policy is in effect to provide the highest quality of discussion.

Note to first-time commenters: When you submit your first comment on Total Music Awards, it will be held for moderation. Once we have approved it, then you will be able to submit future comments (using the same email address) wand have them published immediately.

As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this or anything else!
