Code of Conduct

This code of conduct applies to all discussion venues promoted by Straight News Online.

Anyone who violates this code of conduct will be barred from participating in discussions.


1) No Hate Speech or Bullying

Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.

2) Don't Be a Jerk

We encourage debate, and that could lead to some tense exchanges. That's OK. But check your temper at the door. Be insightful, not insulting.

3) Be Real

We want authentic discussion. Fake and anonymous accounts are prohibited. Be you and be real.

4) No Promotions or Spam

Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren't allowed.

5) No doxxing

Posting personally identifying information about another person like addresses, phone numbers, places without their permission will get you banned — immediately.
