Personally I believe all comments should be allowed, whether they are positive or negative, outright toxic or discriminatory. They would be removed due to violation of terms eventually. If they happen to include social media or business links on their profile, well, that's quite unfortunate :)

But at the same time I can understand there are people that don't have the mental and emotional fortitude to see these kinds of comments and simply scroll past, and of course if people see toxic comments everywhere they might decide it's not the right community for them.
