Moderation policy

All opinions and contributions are welcome, and we moderate all ideas and comments submitted. This means that submissions (ideas and comments) may be removed if they do not follow our moderation policy. This is not about censoring your views. If an idea or comment does not adhere to the following guidelines then we may remove it:

  • Respect other people. Ideas and comments should not be malicious or offensive in nature, and should not constitute a personal attack on a person’s character

  • Don’t incite hatred on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality or sexuality or any other personal characteristic

  • Don’t include swearing, hate-speech or obscenity

  • Don’t reveal personal details, such as private addresses, phone numbers, email addresses or other online contact details

  • Don’t break the law – this includes libel, condoning illegal activity, and breaking copyright

  • Your submissions are reasonably concise, and don’t constitute spamming of the site

  • Don’t advertise commercial products and services – you can mention relevant products and services as long as they support your comment

  • Don’t impersonate or falsely claim to represent a person or organisation

  • Stay on-topic. Please don’t post messages that are unrelated to our outlined Challenges (including misinformation and disinformation)

If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission before submitting a comment. Users without this consent are not allowed to participate or provide us with personal information.

We invite open participation and want diverse viewpoints to be shared, that is the main goal and purpose of this platform. 

We deeply value your time and input, and our desire is to remove as few posts as possible while ensuring that a focused, constructive discussion takes place. This moderation policy is subject to change to address additional matters as may be warranted. We have the right to remove ideas and/or comments at any time.
