House Rules

We've established these House Rules to keep the messageboards a healthy environment for discussion so that everyone can get the most out of commenting on this website.

We reserve the right to delete comments which:

Are offensive

Personal insults or threats directed at fellow participants or other people (such as politicians) are not allowed. Of course you're allowed to disagree with others but please do so in a respectful and thoughtful manner. In addition, racist, sexist, homophobic, disablist, sexually explicit, abusive or otherwise objectionable material will be removed.

Contain spam

Spamming or flooding is not allowed. Spamming means submitting the same or very similar comment many times across the site. Flooding means re-submitting your contribution to the same messageboard thread multiple times.

Contain unsuitable links

When posting links, please make sure they're relevant to the discussion you're engaged in and that they do not redirect viewers to unsuitable content.

Are not in English

We have to make sure comments can be checked and want all readers to understand the comment.

Comments can be flagged by clicking on the flag icon in the upper-right corner of each comment. Please only flag comments that obviously break these rules and we'll do our best to keep the messageboards a welcoming place where everyone can have meaningful discussions and debates.
