NSW Labor aims to create an online community committed to furthering the debate within progressive politics in our State.
Here are a few guidelines to help ensure the best experience for all participants:
Stick to the topic
Sticking to the topic helps everyone. This will help the online discussion to flow and be more interesting, allowing ideas to develop in a structured and useful way.
We are after a good discussion, not an argument. Profanities, name calling, personal or ad hominem attacks on fellow participants, politicians or public figures are prohibited. Remember writing your whole post in capitals is like throwing a tantrum.
Facts not fiction please. Spreading misleading or false information is not allowed.
No Junk Mail
No advertising or promoting products or repeatedly posting the same post.
Leave factions at the door
The NSW Labor site is not a forum for factional or group alliances. Such groups or posts will be removed.
We retain the right to determine which comments violate our comment policy at our discretion. We also reserve the right to remove violations. We expect all contributors to be respectful.
Australian Labor does not necessarily support or condone all discussions on this website. Australian Labor will remove defamatory comments where they are identified. Australian Labor will assess all reports of inappropriate comments and respond accordingly. The Party Platform represents the guiding document for policy development within Australian Labor.
This policy also applies to Australian Labor social networking profiles including but not limited to those on Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, Scribd & Twitter.
