    Default Please Read - GUBoards Rules

    Per the Spokesman-Review:

    Community guidelines

    Free speech is chic. is a place for robust debate and interaction among community users, especially through discussions about stories, multimedia and other content. But because this is a web site owned by a family newspaper, here are some basic rules about sharing and posting on our site:

    The Basics

    No hate speech or hate symbols, which includes but is not limited to content that is degrading to someone's race, religion, ethnicity, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Please avoid using obscene, profane or vulgar language. No sharing or uploading content of like nature. Please contact a moderator to report offensive content for consideration and possible removal. Outside of those guidelines, the best solution to "unwanted" speech is counterspeech. If you don't agree with somebody's opinion, consider adding your voice.

    Treat other participants politely.

    We encourage the building of friendships and social networks through our virtual venues. Please respect other community members. We also encourage users to stay on topic. Please use common sense for taste and decency because your mother, grandmother, kids or boss may be reading.

    Don't exploit people; don't exploit the medium. is not a place for porn, blatant promotion, mindless abuse, mining, pushing one's own agenda or anything else considered spam. No harassment, stalking, threats or intimidation, trolling, flame wars or exposing other users' personal information. We strongly encourage users with disputes to "take it outside" and away from our discussion venues.

    We reserve the right to ban repeat offenders temporarily or permanently.

    Do respect copyright laws.

    We like people who post original content. Otherwise, play on the safe side and credit the source, or consider linking to it instead.

    We encourage people to poke around and get sucked into our site.

    If you find something you like and want to share it with your friends and family, don't hesitate to bookmark it, embed it or email the URL to spread the good word about the good fight.
