To ensure our site continues to be a positive environment for members, we encourage you to review these comment moderation guidelines. DateHub moderators review all comments posted on articles and blogs and will use the following principles as the basis for their decision to publish or not publish a comment or thread.

 

DateHub moderators may also remove any part of a comment in breach of these guidelines and will publish the remainder. 

Any comments provided are approved or declined at the moderator's discretion and can be done so without providing member notification or reason why it has been removed.

 

Comments will not be published if they fall into the following categories:

  • Off-topic conversations

  • Overtly sexual or lewd comments

  • References to sexual behaviours unsuitable for discussion in a public forum

  • Abusive and/or offensive language

  • Racism

  • Sexist language or commentary

  • Any form of offensive discrimination

  • Abuse directed at another person

  • Chat directed to another person that adds little or no value to the topic

  • Invasions of privacy including revealing the identity of another commenter

  • Sarcasm that adds no value to the general conversation

  • Persistent (multiple) contributions presenting a contributors point of view

  • Comments that include hyperlinks, email addresses, URLs of any kind

  • Plagiarism if able to be identified and not presented as a quote properly credited

  • Duplicate posted comments

  • Commercial promotion

  • Comments that include addresses or venues for private functions
     

DateHub reserves the right to suspend all comments from a member who repeatedly submits comments that breach the guidelines.

 

Repetition of offensive behaviour can result in a member being permanently blocked from participating or having their RSVP membership suspended.
 

The moderator's decision is final.
