  • Be polite and act with consideration for other website users of all ages and backgrounds 
  • Stay on topic, don’t hijack a post to discuss your own personal agenda or promote your own event 
  • Don’t flag a post or comment because you disagree with someone else



By following the etiquette guidelines we aim not to moderate your comments. But we will remove them if they break our community standards. For example:

  • Personal attacks, abuse and trolling will not be tolerated 
  • Offensive content will be removed 
  • We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate-speech, or contributions that can be interpreted as such
  • We acknowledge criticism and welcome feedback, but we won’t allow the Globe to be misrepresented. Where appropriate, feedback should be constructive
  • Keep your comments relevant to the original post. We will remove any posts that are obviously commercial or spam-like
