Politics, a tricky subject in company!

Hi everyone

There have recently been a few posts on political subjects, some of which have got out-of-hand or had comments that caused offense.

The FibroAction.HU Community Guidelines specifically state:

5. Be mindful not to post offensive material. Religion and Politics should not be discussed here.

The Guidelines can be accessed through the links in the box on the right hand side of the screen when looking at the Blogs or Questions sections.

We make an exception for disability specific subjects, such as disability welfare reform. However other aspects of politics should not be discussed: this includes immigration, party politics, political funding, general (i.e. not disability specific) welfare reform, etc.

In all threads, regardless of whether they are on political subjects or not, care should be taken to avoid offense. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination are never allowed.

Thanks

Lindsey

Agree Lindsey, there are plenty of other places/Fb etc to vent about this type of thing.

some things can never be agreed upon...Religion and Politics being the primary two.

cheers

So don`t ask for people to sign things about Atos or such like.

If thats not a pollitical hot topic I don`t know what is.

As stated above, we make an exception for disability specific subjects, such as disability welfare reform, as these are directly relevant to Fibro information and awareness.
