The specific copy uploaded here is not public domain if not explicitly stated. You cannot take the copy here and put it on another site or sell it as I understand it and that you can do if it is public domain.

Of course they might not be inconsistent. But you need to now which one is the primary one when they are in conflict in details. And the statement in the policy cover things that are not illegal and things that does not cause any risk to be sued.

Somebody need to add to the policy that jokingly sexual explicit posts are not allowed either. Maybe they are illegal in Canada so this principle exists.

It is a matter of good taste, not law. We welcome readers of all ages here, and "adult" content is inappropriate; we don't want to restrict the site to "over 18s only". We aren't "prudes", but these particular posts were well beyond the limits of what is acceptable.

I think this is a good policy that is well written and not too restrictive or vague.

I enjoy participating on well moderated forums such as this one, and I am a moderator myself on a different forum that is comprised of people from all over the world. It is challenging creating policies like this one for an international community. I think you've done a great job and I appreciate the time and effort of all the moderators here.

Thanks

Julie
