Competitions, prize draws and promotions

Regarding abusive language
We make a distinction between lively criticism of an argument, belief or style of writing and attacks on individuals. Comments that are abusive to other commenters or our journalists will not be tolerated.
Hate-speech and inciting violence
We will not tolerate sexist, racist, homophobic, and other discriminatory language or views. Nor comments which are defamatory, malicious, threatening, false, misleading, offensive or abusive. Comments which incite violence or appear threatening or harassing will also be deleted – and those users banned.
Bad language or indecency
Comments which include swear words will automatically be referred for moderation and usually deleted. Any swearing directed at another user will automatically be deleted. Please also refrain from posting any content which could be seen to be indecent, obscene or of a sexual nature.
Privacy & impersonation
You should respect the privacy of other commenters and not include personal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers or full names in your post. Do not impersonate another user in your post.
In any online community it is usual for regular commenters to get to know each other and each others’ views. However please refrain from breaking off from the topic under discussion to engage in personal chats or spats.
Risk of libel, contempt of court, or breach of copyright
We reserve the right to protect ourselves from legal action by closing comments on videos reporting on ongoing court cases or otherwise. We will also delete comments which we deem potentially defamatory or in breach of copyright. Commenters using another comment thread to open discussion on a topic closed to comments will be banned.
Please note that you are responsible for your posts and we will not accept any liability for their content or accuracy. We also reserve the right to republish your posts, which is another reason why we are including your contribution on the clear understanding that your posts are your own work and not copied from others. By contributing posts, you are agreeing to all the above and warranting that your comments are not defamatory, obscene or in breach of anyone else’s rights. This means generally that you must own the rights in everything you submit or must obtain permission from the rights owner to submit the material.
