sexually oriented, racially offensive or otherwise objectionable material is not acceptable.
- Be patient: users of all ages and abilities may be taking part in the discussion.
- No spamming or off-topic material: We don’t allow the submission of the same or very similar contributions many times.
Please do not re-submit your contribution to more than one discussion, or contribute off-topic material in subject-specific areas.
- Contributions containing languages other than English may be removed unless allowed in the relevant rules.
- No inappropriate (e.g. vulgar, offensive etc) user names.

If you want to reach our moderators to report offensive contributions, please e-mail them at [email protected]. When reporting about another user’s contribution, make sure you state why you think it has breached the agreement, and please note, disagreement with someone’s views is not a reason to report them.
When we receive your complaint, we will evaluate it and decide on the most suitable action. We will not normally confirm the steps we take to the complainant, as this may breach the rights and privacy of others, but pleased be assured that all complaints will be checked promptly and professionally. In some cases, we may have to remove an entire segment of content, including messages that do not breach our terms, if they were part of a topic that was in breach of our agreement or where the context is lost or does not make sense once we removed offensive content. For example, if we remove a racist comment, the responses to it will no longer be relevant.
We will not respond unless required to do so by law to any electronic mail sent to us which contains threatening, abusive, malicious, pornographic, obscene, defamatory or otherwise illegal or inappropriate material. We reserve the right to take such action as we in our sole discretion deem fit in respect of such material.
All articles received will be taken to be submitted, where appropriate, for publication, free of charge. If you wish to negotiate a fee for the publication of your exclusive material you should make it clear in your email, and include your name, address and, if applicable, a contact telephone number. Your email should explicitly state that the material contained in your e-mail has been submitted for the purposes of negotiating a fee for the publication of that material.
We will not disclose any personal information under any circumstances of any staff. Where appropriate we will endeavour to respond to e-mails within 3 days of receipt, but we cannot and do not guarantee to respond to e-mails. E-mails will generally be stored for 6 months after which time they may automatically be deleted. An e-mail sent to the incorrect destination is liable to be deleted immediately.
You may not post, modify, distribute, or reproduce in any way any copyright material, trademarks, or other proprietary information belonging to others without obtaining the prior written consent of the owner of such proprietary rights.

Without limiting the foregoing, if you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the website by another User in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify us at [email protected].
