We’re a local community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe, or see what you see.

We strive to create a safe and positive community on our social media channels, so we ask that all users heed the following Community Guidelines. A Respectful and Supportive Community We encourage you to comment and interact with our social media accounts, as we want to build a positive and supportive online community. We welcome questions and comments, including healthy debate, constructive feedback, and suggestions, but please remember to stay on topic and respectful with what you post.

In order to create a positive and engaging environment for users among our LocalBuddy Accounts, we ask all users to treat each other with respect. Users may disagree with an idea; however, they must be respectful of others at all times. Insults, threats or harassment of other users, organisations or employees are prohibited.

We want to hear from you and encourage comments, critiques, questions, and suggestions. We ask that you simply stay on topic, respect other people’s opinions, avoid profanity, offensive statements, illegal content, and anything else that might otherwise violate our standard terms and conditions.

There are certain topics we won’t be able to talk about here, and some of your discussions may need to be redirected or curtailed for the same reason.

In the statement above, LocalBuddy makes is clear that comments that do not adhere to its code of conduct can be deleted, along with spam or scam posts or anything that does not correlate to their business (“unintelligible or irrelevant posts”).

The same applies to banning users
