WisContext encourages community dialogue and welcomes you to participate in the online conversation. The following is the official policy for everyone participating in WisContext's online community. It's based on NPR.org's Community Discussion Policy.
If You Can't Be Polite, Don't Say It
We allow discussion of controversial issues. We understand that some topics require blunt talk, but please try to disagree without being disagreeable. Focus your remarks on positions, not personalities. No personal attacks, name calling, libel, defamation, or hate speech. And under no circumstances should you post anything that could be taken as threatening, harassing, bullying, obscene, pornographic, sexist or racist.
Don't Use Obscenities
Even if the word in question is often used in conversation please refrain from that sort of language; this is a public forum and we want everyone to feel comfortable participating.
Anything You Post Should Be Your Own Work
You're welcome to link to relevant content and to quote limited amounts from other people's work with attribution and any associated copyright notice and consistent with "fair use" principles of copyright law. But that doesn't mean you can copy and paste wholesale. You must have the legal right to upload or download any content you upload to or download from the discussion board and/or blog comments.
Be Yourself And Not Someone Else
Don't post anything on the site posing as someone else.
Please Stay On Topic
As a courtesy to others participating in the conversation, please stay on topic.
Keep It Short And To The Point
We reserve the right to edit for brevity, clarity and other purposes.
Please Respect People's Privacy
Do not share anyone's contact information in your comments or discussions. Feel free to share your ideas and experiences about religion, politics and relevant products or services you've discovered. But this is not a place for advertising, promotion, recruiting, campaigning, lobbying, soliciting or proselytizing. We understand that there can be a fine line between discussing and campaigning; please use your best judgment — we will use ours.
You Are Solely Responsible For The Content You Post
WisContext is not responsible for the content or opinions posted by its users. We do not and cannot review all user content posted on this site. However, we have the right (but not the obligation) to review, screen, delete, edit and/or move any content posted.
Your Comments Might Be Used On-Air
They may be edited for length and clarity.
Violation of these guidelines can result in removal of your comments or posting privileges.
