Moderation policy

To ensure the conversation remains appropriate, intelligent and lawful, discussions on this site are actively moderated by Mosman Council’s web team. We are concerned with the quality of the discussion not the interests of one individual, group or idea over another.

We will edit or remove a contribution that:

  • is off-topic
  • is defamatory, abusive, harassing or hateful
  • includes any abusive, obscene, indecent or offensive language
  • endorses commercial products or activities or solicits business
  • violates copyrights or other forms of licences and consents
  • invades anyone’s privacy, reveals the identity of another user or impersonates anyone
  • 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
  • We will state publicly when and why a contribution has been edited or removed.

The first comment from a visitor is moderated. To encourage discussion, further comments from that visitor are not pre-moderated; that is, comments are visible online the moment the author submits their comment. Contributions contrary to the moderation policy may be visible for a short time.
