Network Norwich & Norfolk welcomes article comments and contributions to its forums from all users, subject to certain rules.
We want to encourage people to contribute to this website but we need certain rules in place so that this can be within reasonable boundaries. Generally we restrict article comments to logged-in site members, who can also flag up other people's comments for attention by a moderator. We do allow more open comments on selected articles.
We post-moderate comments, which means that we allow comments to go online first and then keep a close eye on them and remove anything unsuitable. To make this system workable, and legal, we need users to adhere to the following rules, based upon those used by the BBC.
Network Norfolk readers think that user comments and forum posts are an important part of the website and add positively to articles and the site.
