Each person is responsible for only his or her own posts. If another person breaks rules, you may ignore them or report the post to the forum administrators, but you may not use it as an excuse to break rules yourself.

At times we will allow certain threads to continue to progress, and they may have foul language and other phrases that may offend.  Again, those are the responsibility of the poster – and may still be authorized by the forum administrator.

Volunteer forum administrators help us manage and enforce the rules. The administrators will read every message, but if one crosses the line after approval, we they rely on members to report problem posts that they encounter.

All posts will be placed in moderation until approved.  PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: Email addresses, IP addresses and user names will be archived – but all comments, names and emails are public, in some instances they may be viewed by other persons commenting, so please watch what you post.

ALSO: Unless the person posting/emailing/commenting is a source in a story, there is no expectation of privacy on those submissions, especially when voluntarily posting on a public forum. As part of the agreement to comment on the stories, users must provide their email address.

The point of moderation is not to limit discussion, promote or suppress points of view, or any other secret agenda. The goal of moderation is to keep the comments enjoyable and free from comments that detract from the experiences of our users.

By commenting on the stories, galleries, videos, and any content on San Eli News, or any of our associated websites and publicly accessible social media sites, the person commenting accepts these terms of use.
