Guidelines for posting on

The Bangor Daily News encourages comments about stories, but you must follow our terms of service.

  1. Keep it civil and stay on topic
  2. No vulgarity, racial slurs, name-calling or personal attacks.
  3. People who harass others or joke about tragedies will be blocked.
The primary rule here is pretty simple: Treat others with the same respect you'd want for yourself. Here are some guidelines (see more):

  • The States foster care system is the biggest contributor to homelessness.  It is followed closely by the State’s juvenile correctional system.  Over 60% of “State Children” wind up homeless or confined in a State facility. 

    It would be to everyone’s benefit to fix this.

    • Tom Jones

      I totally agree with you. but you also have to remember that the State thought that could raise the kids that they took away better then the parents that they were living with.
