Philosophy

To have a liberal commenting policy that allows people to express themselves as fully as possible without damaging this site, or abusing other posters on it.

Policy

General

Pornography and racist language are not wanted, it damages the site and devalues the work everyone puts in. This site is fundamentally for people interested in politics, even if most of you think of it as a pub.

Daytime

I would like people to be able to use the site at work without a massive pair of knockers, or worse appearing on the screen. It’s fine for those of you on mobile devices but if you’re sat in front of a large screen which other people can see. .  .

No music videos. Don’t bother complaining if they get deleted.

Evenings and weekends

Images of a more liberal nature and music videos are allowed.

How you will be moderated

Comments that contravene moderation policy will be deleted. Before you pointlessly complain do please F5/refresh or check your Disqus account to see if your comment has actually been deleted. Disqus is notorious for disappearing comments, it is not ideal but there’s nothing better.

The only place I’ve seen with a complete absence of moderation policy is YouTube. It is not something I wish to emulate.

Enjoy. If you’re not enjoying it then take a break.
