Moderating Policies

Posting guidelines:

  1. Before posting, please ask yourself if you’re actually making a contribution to on-topic discussion.
  2. Don’t respond to threads that suck.
  3. If things go towards flame wars, please consider stepping back.

The following will not be tolerated:

  • Safer Space. Sexist, racist, etc. content is subject to moderation. We understand that many such behaviors are unfortunately common in society so bans will be reserved for the worst/repeat offenders.
  • No Platform. Conspiracy theories, will be removed immediately and the spammer will receive a swift global network ban. Fascist propaganda, will be treated with the similar actions. In that we are very specific about what fascism is: the word has a meaning.
  • Stay On target. Off topic posts etc, will be moderated and removed. Spamming the forums and spamming of links that have nothing to do with the subject at hand will be banned outright.
  • Trolling will be squashed whenever possible/reported/found out.
  • Posting people’s personal information on the website is prohibited.

Reporting Abuse

Please submit abuse reports through our contact form.

When sending a complaint, you should always include the offending comment’s permalink so that the moderators don’t have to hunt for it. The URL will be given in your browser’s address bar. Copy it, and paste in your complaint email.

Additional Information

If you have any other questions please submit it through our contact form.

There is lag between posting and viewing comments. Don’t assume that because you don’t see your comments immediately they’re being removed.
