PSI Community Guidelines

PSI rules of engagement and moderation policy for comments on social media.

At PSI, we welcome discussions and constructive criticism on our channels.

We do not tolerate insults, hate speech, provocations, mobbing, and threats. We will remove illegal, obscene, discriminatory, criminal, racist, and violent content from the PSI accounts.

PSI community guidelines (or Netiquette) establish PSI rules of engagement and moderation policy for comments on social media:

  1.  Comments must relate to the topic of the post in question.

  3.  Respect other users and their opinions. Remain fair and factual, and remember that communication on this site is public.
  4.  We reserve the right to remove posts that do not comply with these rules without giving reasons. In particular, the following content is not permitted:
    1.  Defamatory posts and comments or those with racist, discriminatory, sexist, pornographic, violence glorifying, misleading or illegal content
    2.  Comments that are inappropriate for young people or that are suggestive
