Comments are welcomed and encouraged on this site, but there are some instances where comments will be edited or deleted as follows:
The comment section is for people to add their opinion and add further information. This can add a lot of value to the post and encourage others to comment. If the comments have no relevance to the post than it discourages others to comment.
Some basic rules:
- Comments need to be on topic of the post.
- No derogatory comments on race, religion or colour.
- No swear words, profanity, obscenity or vulgarity.
- No abusing other commentators.
- No spamming.
This site as other sites that have a political content get trolled regularly to try to take comments off topic and undermine the comment section. That is why comments need to be on topic of the post. Once one person takes the comments off topic invariably others follow then a lot of the comments have no relevance to the post.
Generalised comments on one political party or another does not constitute on topic.
If you do not know what an internet troll is there is an article on Wikipedia which says “In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.” (Click here to read more)
