Blog Rules

Acceptance of RCUK blog rules

These rules set out the terms for use of the RCUK blog site, which apply to all users. By using this blog site, you accept, and agree to abide by, all the terms and conditions of these rules, including our terms of website use and privacy policy.

Moderation

Every comment submitted to an RCUK blog is checked before it is published.  The objective of moderating content before it is published is two-fold:

  • To ensure unsuitable content is not published into a channel associated with RCUK
  • To ensure comments made on blogs are clear and appropriate to the content/subject matter in question

Moderation is not designed to censor people from expressing their opinions or to correct grammatical or spelling errors in comments, except where such errors detract from the intended meaning of the comment. Postings will not be published if they:

  • are spam or do not significantly contribute to discussion
  • impersonate someone else or are published anonymously
  • are considered likely to provoke, attack or offend others
  • are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit, abusive or otherwise objectionable
  • contain language likely to offend
  • break the law, condone or encourage unlawful activity
  • describe or encourage activities which could endanger the safety or well-being of others.

Further information

Any queries relating to moderation of comments, our terms of use and privacy policy, and and the RCUK blog site in general should be directed to webmaster@rcuk.ac.uk
