Comment Moderation Policy

We strive to create a fun, friendly, and inviting atmosphere. The ground rules for commenting on Kent County RAYNET are simple. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Try to understand someone else’s perspective and if you disagree, respectfully explain why.

Text is a difficult medium to decipher context. Emoticons and emoji help, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Take a deep breath and assume the commenter has the best of intentions before responding and approach discussions with open minds.

We welcome different perspectives and viewpoints but we all need to clearly communicate them without tearing the opposition down in the process.

Stay on point using concise language. If your comment is more than a few paragraphs long, consider publishing it on your own site instead with an excerpt and link back to here.

Your comment may be deleted if it matches any of the following criteria:

  • Advocates an illegal practice
  • Uses vulgar, profane, or unnecessarily harsh language
  • Is spam or appears to be written primarily to post a link or advertise
  • Is written anonymously
  • Contains copyrighted material not licensed for distribution on the site
  • Impersonates another user
  • Contains an affiliate link
  • Personal insults, including those using racist or sexist terms.

These guidelines are not meant to be an exhaustive list. The deletion of comments is wholly within the discretion of the moderators at Kent County RAYNET and we will err on the side of maintaining a safe and friendly community.

Why do I need to supply an email address?

Firstly, by entering your email address you will not be signed up to any other Kent County RAYNET services, unless you check the boxes below the submit button.

Our site is powered by WordPress and we use Akismet which is an automated spam filter, both of which require an email to post.  Your first few comments may be held back due to this service but we do review all comments on a daily basis.
