New commenting guidelines for Anarkismo.net

category elsewhere | miscellaneous | policy statement author Thursday September 21, 2006 21:11author by Anarkismo Editorial Group - Anarkismo Report this post to the editors

Following on a welcome increase in the level and scope of discussion on Anarkismo.net we are modifying out commenting guidelines. The new guidelines can be found in the left hand box of every page,

Anarkismo.net is run by an editorial group drawn from members of anarchist communist organisations around the world. The articles we choose to publish will reflect this.

However anybody can submit a story for publication and if it is consistent with our editorial statement it will probably be published. Anyone can post a comment on a story on Anarkismo.net..

We want the comments on the articles to be about serious, real debate or additional information and questions about the article. To create an atmosphere where serious discussion flourishes we will monitor and remove comments that undermine such an atmosphere..

In general, comments may be removed for any of the following reasons:

1. Comments with no link to the story they are posted under. The comment must be relevant to the story.

2. Advertising or other inappropriate content.

3. Identical comments posted to more than one story. Post your comment only under the most relevant article not to multiple articles on the same topic.

4. Continuing debates across multiple articles. Anarkismo.net is not a bulletin board. All comments should directly relate to the article or preceding comments. Users should refrain from constantly bringing up points from previous threads, unless they have a close relevance to the new article. Users should also note that repetitive demands of another user to answer a particular question or point is a reason for deletion especially when it occurs across multiple threads.

5. Cut and pastes. Do not post as comments articles or comments that have been posted on other sites or elsewhere on Anarkismo. If you think material elsewhere is relevant post a summary and a URL for it not the entire piece.

6. Infactual or obviously false posts. The onus is on the author to check and confirm facts - if a clear factual error is brought to our attention it will be removed.

7. Trolling. Comments which contain abuse towards any group, individual, or article without attempting to situate this in the context of the particular article or debate arising out of that article. So for example, a comment which simply says: "the Popular Front of Judea are wankers" will be deleted, while a comment that says: "The fact that the PFJ have refused this offer of an alliance shows them to be hypocritical in the light of what they have said before", might remain

8. Libelous or slanderous posts. Choose your language carefully. Do not make allegations against named individuals unless you can substantiate them.

9. Personal abuse. Any comment containing personal abuse or unsubstantiated allegations about named individuals, particularly if those individuals are not public figures.

10. Revealing posters real identities or personal information about them. It is up to a poster to decide whether to use all or some of their real name, if they choose not to do not reveal additional information about them.

11. Impersonation. Comments which impersonate other Anarkismo.net users by adoption of their names or regular pseudonyms

12. Discriminatory or hateful posts. Posts that contain explicitly racist, sexist or homophobic views will be removed

13. Fascists. All content expressing fascist views or written by active fascists, or expressing revisionist / holocaust denial positions, or linking to a fascist site. We will not provide a platform for fascist recruitment

14. One liners. Comments that consist of witty or otherwise one liners will be removed. If you have an argument to make develop it into at least a paragraph.

15. Persistent Abuse. Users who persistently refuse to abide by Anarkismo policy are liable to have any and all of their contributions removed. In extreme cases we may seek to prevent them posting to the site in the future.

16. Comments on editorial policy. Users can make suggestions by contacting the editors using the 'Contact Us' link at the top of the front page. Editorial actions are decided on our editorial list. Commentary on Anarkismo editorial policy on the newswire will be removed except for one thread we have created for such comments at http://www.anarkismo.net/newswire.php?story_id=1700

17. Comments that refer to Deleted Posts. Comments referring to something that a user can't see as it has been deleted will also be removed.

Note - the above guidelines were originally based on ones used by indymedia.ie
