rabble.ca is a public, progressive news and information source. As part of rabble, this message board (babble) was created to ensure that readers/participants could explore any issues of interest and concern. While all points of view are welcome here, repeated attempts to provoke conflict, bait or taunt will not be tolerated. Offenders generally receive warnings before being suspended. Continued abuse could result in eventual or immediate suspension of posting privileges. Posters using multiple identities can be banned outright. Continued participation on these boards is at the sole discretion of the moderator(s) and staff of this site.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this discussion board to post any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory. You agree to avoid personal insults, attacks and mischievous antagonism (otherwise known as trolling). You will not post material that is inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or otherwise violative of any law. You understand that racist, sexist, homophobic and other excluding language is not appropriate on babble.
You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold rabble.ca and its staff harmless with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).
You agree not to post any copyrighted work unless you own the right to the material. Quotes from, and both links and references to such material are acceptable.
Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to do the following:
* e-mail moderator Audra Estrones Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org;
* in the body of this e-mail, include the title of the thread where the post is found, the URL for the thread and a copy of the post you are complaining about.
While we do have the ability to remove offensive messages, we will only do so in the most extreme cases. In those cases where the removal of posts is deemed necessary, it will happen within a reasonable amount of time. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove particular messages immediately.
Considering the real-time nature of this message board, it is impossible for rabble's staff to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Although we do not - and cannot - review all of the messages posted, and are not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message or thread for any reason whatsoever.
We are not obliged to remove any posts created before suspension, unless we deem it necessary. This material will not be used for commercial gain by rabble.ca.
We reserve the right to suspend posters who have provided false information for their profile. We reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of rabble.ca or any entity associated with rabble.
The moderator of this board, and others given limited moderating duties, may close specific threads for the following reasons:
* the thread duplicates topics that are already active;
* the thread's length has become cumbersome;
* the thread's subject matter explicitly targets and/or attacks another participant on babble.
A thread may be moved by the moderator(s) from one forum to another that is more appropriate for the subject matter.
We reserve the right to revise this policy at any time in the future. Participants of this discussion board will be notified when changes occur.
