SPIN Community Guidelines

  • Contributions should be relevant to the content or the topic of discussion
  • Comment on content and ideas — not on the people posting them
  • Treat each other with respect, even as you challenge each other’s politics and perspectives
  • The following kinds of content are prohibited: personal attacks; insults or slurs; defamatory comments; hate speech; threats or harassment; discriminatory comment or comment that exposes an individual or a group to hatred or contempt on the basis of religion, race, nationality or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age or disability
  • Respect each other’s privacy, for example, by not disclosing someone’s sexual orientation or personal stories that are not your own; don’t post or threaten to post other people’s personally identifying information, either
  • No advertising, “spam” or other commercial posts; and if you’re going to share someone else’s work, make sure you credit them

Consequences of not respecting these guidelines:

We reserve the right to hide or delete any contribution that breaches these guidelines. Repeat offenders will be considered unwelcome and may be banned from engaging on our website or social channels.
