  • promote discrimination based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age or links to articles or websites that do the same;

  • harass, threaten or attack anyone;

  • be obscene, vulgar, offensive, pornographic, profane, sexually explicit or indecent;

  • contain any information which personally identifies another person unless you have obtained their express consent;

  • constitute or encourage conduct that would be a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any local, state, national or international law;

  • prejudice pending or on-going criminal or civil court proceedings;

  • violate, plagiarise or infringe the rights of third parties including any copyright, trademark, patent, rights of privacy or publicity or any other proprietary right;

  • breach any legal duty owed to a third party, such as a contractual duty or a duty of confidence;

  • contain any information, software or other material of a commercial nature;

  • contain advertising, promotions or commercial solicitations of any kind, unless editorially justified;

  • be likely to upset, embarrass and alarm any other person;

  • constitute or contain false or misleading indications of origin or statements of fact;

  • be used to impersonate any person, or to misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person; and

  • contain any virus, Trojan horse, worm, time bomb, cancelbot or other similar harmful programming routine.

We will refrain from publishing any content that breaches these guidelines and may remove any comments that we feel, in our sole discretion, cause offence.

If a person seriously breaches these guidelines and/or attacks our authors, we reserve the right to notify the police and use any personal data that we have collected to aid in a police investigation. 

At all times, we reserve the right to take actions that we think will benefit our users.

We may amend these Participation Guidelines or any of our terms to ensure that we remain compliant with relevant laws and regulations.  Please be sure to check them from time to time.
