  • Seeking Alpha Celebrates 2MM Real-Time Alerts Subscribers! [View article]
    Hi NC Investor,

    We have 24-hour comment moderation and a member of our moderation team reviews each and every comment that is reported to us as abusive. However, we do not delete every comment that is reported as abusive, but only those that expressly violate our community guidelines. Admittedly, the threshold here is high, as our first priority is to preserve free and open debate as long as it is conducted constructively and with an eye towards civility.

    Part of what makes Seeking Alpha great is that we provide a forum for users to engage in serious, impassioned debate and we are focused on protecting that. A recent academic study confirmed the predictive value of Seeking Alpha comments which disagreed with the investment thesis presented in articles -- protecting users' right to refute others' analysis is thus critical to preserving the value of the platform for readers.

    All of that said, we do ban commenters on occasion and we do send warnings prior to such bans. We also have various internal systems to detect new accounts that have been created by previously banned users. Also, we are discussing ways to improve the comment threads on the site and an "Ignore" button has been mentioned in these discussions.

    Please don't hesitate to report abuse when you see it and know that someone looks at all of these reports. If you have any questions or concerns about our policies or decisions, please don't hesitate to reach out: colin@seekingalpha.com

    Although we welcome and encourage constructive debate, we should all remember that what makes Seeking Alpha such a wonderful platform is that everyone is encouraged to share their opinions. No one wins if contributors are discouraged from discussing their ideas.

    If you believe there is misinformation, we encourage you to write an article and share your insights with the SA community.

  • Finding Alpha In Event-Driven Patent-Litigation Investments [View article]
    I think very few investors have any kind of visibility into this space. One of the great things about this article, for me anyway, was that it better prepared me to read and understand their other articles.

  • Cell Therapeutics outlines integrated Phase 2 pacritinib data at ASH [View news story]
    This Market Current merely reports the price move and the data released by the company — it is entirely objective. Aside from the price action, the bullet points carry no negative connotation.
