Ground Rules of the Comment Policy

We have established guidelines for ensuring healthy discussions on our platform:

  1. We champion constructive debates but won’t tolerate personal attacks, continuous provocations, or undue negativity. Engage as you would in person, focusing on ideas, not personal jabs.
  2. We might step in if a conversation spirals into a heated argument. If you have concerns about someone’s comment, email us. Flagging with “admin” in your comment will send it to our moderation queue.
  3. Maintain relevance. Stick to the topic. If your comment diverges significantly, it might be removed. Reach out if you’re keen to write about something not covered.
  4. Refrain from repetitive comments. Use the “reply” feature for organised discussions.
  5. Discriminatory remarks, hate speech, and excessive swearing are forbidden. Mind your language. Stay focused and leave political comments to other forums.
  6. Don’t post anything that might lead to legal complications. Avoid discussing private matters and never impersonate others.
  7. No promotions or overt advertising. Interested in partnering? Email us or reach out on any of our social platforms.
  8. Tone can be lost in text. Be mindful that humour or sarcasm may be misread.
  9. Let’s not nitpick on grammar or spelling. This isn’t an English class.
  10. Refrain from unnecessary negative comments about individuals.
  11. To sum it up: Stay respectful and kind.

Lastly… While we encourage user interaction, as part of this comment policy, we at lets go manchester hold the absolute right to remove or edit comments for any reason. Our goal is to maintain a constructive and welcoming environment for all participants.
