We want to help make these discussions as welcoming, open and safe as possible for the entire community, and anticipate that members will work with us to achieve that aim. We expect members to meet certain standards in any of their contributions to discussions, and these standards inform our moderation policy. The following activities are not acceptable.
We post-moderate blogs and members posts. This means that a post will not be reviewed prior to its posting. Members may report posts which they regard as being in breach of these Community Standards or in any way abusive, offensive or inappropriate. Any person who is not a member may report a comment by using the Report Inappropriate Content form.
After a post is reported, it will be reviewed by a moderator and, if the post is perceived as breaching the Community Standards, then it will be removed by the moderator. If part of a post breaches these Community Standards, then the entire post will be removed. We do not edit members posts. Irishracing.com reserves this absolute right to remove posts and its decision is final.
In reviewing a post which has been reported, the moderator will assess as to whether it prima facie breaches the Community Standards and you will appreciate is not in a position to assess the merits of any underlying argument regarding the factual basis for the post or any underlying dispute in relation to the post.
It is a condition of registration as a member of the community that these Community Standards be observed by the member. Any member who persistently ignores or breaches these Community Standards, or our terms and conditions, may have their posting privileges withdrawn and may have their registration cancelled.
