Comments and Users Policy

by Witness Performance

Witness encourages honest, even passionate, discussion. We distinguish clearly between respectful disagreement and abusive behaviour, because they’re not difficult to tell apart.

We don’t like policing people, but there are a couple of simple rules.

Rule No 1 is the universal social media rule: Don’t be a dick.

We will not tolerate any kind of abuse, bigotry or personal attack. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism or ad hominem attacks are not welcome, and defamatory comments will be removed. We expect members of the Witness community to listen respectfully to each other, and to treat each other’s differences with courtesy.

If something blows up, we will consider action on a case by case basis. Repeat trangressors will have their commenting or membership privileges revoked.

You can help to fund robust independent discussion and make Witness sustainable for as little as $5 a month by signing up at this page. If you're already a Witness supporter, our earnest thanks.
