Digital economy blog: Moderation policy
The purpose of this blog is to use a digital economy platform to engage with members of the public about digital economy issues. DBCDE encourages you to post your comments on the blog and welcomes your feedback. Comments that do not comply with our Moderation Policy will not be published to the blog and if DBCDE becomes aware of a published comment that does not comply with the Moderation Policy, we reserve the right to remove it.
To ensure that this experience is productive for everyone, please ensure that you do not post any material that a reasonable person would consider:
- includes any abusive, obscene, indecent or offensive language
- is defamatory, abusive, harassing or hateful
- that you do not have the necessary rights, licences and consents to post
- constitutes spam, unauthorised advertising or solicits
- contains long embedded URLs
- invades anyone's privacy or impersonates anyone
- is far off-topic
- encourages conduct that may or would constitute a criminal offence or give rise to civil liability, or that otherwise violates any local, state, national or international law or regulation anywhere in the world, or
- the comment appears to contain irrelevant or excessive links or appears to contain code.
We will not edit comments to remove objectionable content, so please ensure that your comment contains none of the above.
We recognise that the web is a 24/7 medium and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage Australian Government resources appropriately, the moderating and posting of comments will generally occur during regular business hours, Monday to Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible the next business day.
