Interactions with our site are governed by the following guidelines. You will be deemed to consent to these guidelines if you choose to post any content or comments to the site.
1.We appreciate that we have an international audience, but since we publish content in English, the language of conversation on the site should also be English. As such, contributions that cannot be understood by the majority of participants may be removed.
2.We will remove any content that may put us in legal jeopardy, such as potentially libellous or defamatory postings, or material posted in potential breach of copyright. We understand that you may wish to quote from external sources, but please try and refrain from copying and pasting extensively, which not only slows down the discussion, but potentially leads to copyright problems. It's definitely better to post a short quote or synopsis and a link to the original article.
3.We will remove any posts that are obviously commercial or otherwise spam-like. There are technology features in place, which can help to identify spam in content or delivery form and prevent it from being published on the site, but some may slip through.
