These guidelines are not exhaustive, but they’re intended to help understand our approach to user-posted content. It all boils down to being polite, courteous, and Christ-like in the way we communicate online.
In our view, a good comment
- is directly related to the original post.
- is concise and easy to follow.
- is friendly and polite in tone and language, even when you strongly disagree.
- contributes something new and positive to the discussion.
- has clear authorship—that means using your real name.
- talking about others.
- dominating the discussion.
- undermining the church or its ministries. Constructive criticism is welcome.
- posting under false pretenses—including for commercial gain.
