Social Pinpoint is subject to the following moderation rules:
Never post personal information about another participant. This Includes identifying any individual by their real name if they have not already done so, or providing personal contact information.
Never identify a staff member of the consulting organisation by name.
Don't defame anyone or any organisation. A comment is defamatory if it lowers or harms the reputation of a person or organisation. If you wish to insult anyone, this is not the place to do it. If you wish to accuse anyone of wrongdoing or incompetence, this is not the place to do it.
Don't post anything that could be considered intolerant of a person's race, culture, appearance, gender, sexual preference, religion or age.
Don't be obscene and don't use foul language. Lots of people from different backgrounds participate on this website. We want them to be able to continue to do so from home, work, school, university or wherever they may be. Disguising swear words by deliberately misspelling them doesn't make them any less offensive.
Don't personally insult or harass other participants. Always focus on the logic of the argument rather than the individuals involved in the argument. Participants are entitled to choose not to enter into debate with you.
Don't post or link to any inappropriate, offensive or illegal material. Don't post any advertisements.
Don’t promote self-harm, suicide, violence or criminal activity of any kind.
The use of emoji’s or images to convey inappropriate meaning consistent with the rules outlined above will also be moderated.
Please don't raise concerns about the moderation on the site as it disrupts the flow of any discussion. Please direct any queries regarding moderation directly to moderation team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Breaches of the moderation rules will be dealt with as follows:
Removal of comment - any comment that, in the view of the moderator, breaches the rules will be removed.
Permanent Blocking - a participant who continues to violate the moderation rules following reinstatement after a period of suspension may have their access to the website permanently blocked.
