Community, comment, and discussion guidelines
To ensure this community remains a safe space comments and posts are moderated. We ask that when you post a comment, you keep in mind the following:
- Be Kind and Courteous
We’re all in this together to advocate for structural reform of the aged care sector. This website is intended to be a welcoming environment. Respect that other people in the community have had different life experiences and may have a different perspective to yours. If you are going to comment, please try to add valuable discussion to the conversation. Be friendly, be fair and use common sense.
- No Hate Speech or Bullying
Everyone needs to feel safe. Bullying, harassment or ‘combat’ of any kind will not be allowed. Degrading comments about things like age, appearance, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated. Comments that can be interpreted as defamatory, indecent, offensive, profane, discriminatory, misleading, unlawful, threatening, personal attacks, name-calling, or abusive will be deleted.
- No Promotions or Spam
This group is focused on reform. We will not accept posts that promote businesses, including aged care navigation services. Those who post advertisements or advertise themselves in comments may be removed.
- Respect Everyone’s Privacy
- Contributing to this community and discussion requires mutual trust. Please don’t target advertising to people identified via this site unless you ask first or are invited to do so.
- This website is a public place. Don’t post personal information that you would not be comfortable sharing with a stranger. We recommend that you don’t post any information that may identify you or anyone else, such as your address, email address or phone number.
- Opinions are personal
Opinions expressed in posts, links and comments are personal to those making them and do not necessarily reflect the views of the site owners and administrators, or the wider Aged Care Reform Now community.
We reserve the right to delete comments at our discretion and block any repeat offenders. We will remove content that is fraudulent, deceptive, misleading, or that breaches these guidelines.
If you have a question about this policy, community moderation, or our advocacy activities please get in touch via our contact page.
