The administrators and moderators of Hidden Dorset will view all comments and nominations.
Negative comments regarding ‘Gems’ are acceptable, but only if, in the opinion of the moderators, they are felt to be constructive. If comments are determined to be libellous, defamatory or just plain rude, they will not be posted on the site; however if appropriate, we will bring any issues raised to the attention of the ‘Gem’ concerned.
If an individual persistently posts unconstructive comments, then he/she will be barred as a member.
All comments posted on the site must be attributable. If you do not wish your identity to be known, you are welcome to post comments but your comment will not be posted for others to see. You can nominate Gems anonymously although the Gems themselves are often interested to know who has nominated them.
By agreeing to these rules, you further agree that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate any laws.
All comments express the views of the author; neither the administrators or moderators of Hidden Dorset will be held responsible for the content of any message.
