Part D: Contributor Guidelines
To be a part of our community
and engage with other Users, there are two non-negotiable rules we enforce to
protect Users and ourselves:
Rule 1: We require and encourage
our Users to share their opinions openly but with due consideration for others.
In other words, we want Users to express their opinions freely but without
being abusive. While we appreciate constructive criticism, we expect all Users
to treat others with respect. Users must also be 18 years and older to post
comments, chat or blog on this site.
Rule 2: We will refuse to
publish or remove any content we think is unacceptable. We call everything that
is published on our website content, including your blogs, comments and
responses, as well as your personal and business profile information, messages,
poll responses, video, text and images. If it is available on our site, it is
considered content. And while we encourage you to share your views, expand your
network and make the connections that count, we must insist that your content
not include or be linked to any of the following, which we will probably
consider to be unacceptable:
Hate speech, racism,
discrimination, or content that is defamatory, false, demeaning or misleading
or misrepresents another person – particularly if obvious or deliberate.
Any writings that include swear
words or obscene or inappropriate language.
Activities that constitute
stalking, harassment or abuse, or are considered threatening towards a person
or other people.
Anything that infringes someone
else’s intellectual property rights (including copyright, trademark, trade
secret or patent) or amounts to an unauthorised disclosure of confidential
information or trade secrets.
If you quote someone in the
content you provide, it’s up to you to credit the original author and
Anything that contains
unsolicited advertising or marketing links or material – particularly if such
links or material are unrelated to the particular discussion.
Anything else, the publication of which could cause emotional, moral, physical or mental harm to you or other Users, including sensitive personal information about you or other Users, such as medical conditions, criminal records, participation in court processes, employment-related information, information relating to sexual activities or preferences, religious beliefs, political opinions, race and ethnic origin.
We generally decide what’s
acceptable or not on an item-by-item basis, but we in no way limit ourselves to
only evaluating the things mentioned above. We reserve the right to edit or
remove content and alter the unacceptable list as and when required without
notifying Users. To a large degree, we rely on you to help us evaluate the
content on the site. If you become aware of something that you feel is in
breach of any or all of the above, please contact us directly at [insert email
