Community Guidelines

Please be civil and constructive

The Money Question is a place for positive discussion and debate, and may touch on areas we personally care a lot about and will passionately defend. However, for discussions to thrive here, we need to remember to criticize ideas, not people. When you post comments, especially in response to another person, please do so respectfully.

Stay on topic

Please ensure your comments are appropriate responses to the article you are commenting upon, or the broader perspectives being shared in the comments section. Comments that are clearly intended to start another discussion on an unrelated topic may not be approved.

Any comments that contain a link to a political campaign, product or service (such as a digital currency) that is not relevant to the page it is being posted to are unlikely to be approved.

Choose your words wisely

Generally speaking, comments that contain profanity or aggressive language will not be approved. Comments that we find to be hateful or inflammatory will never be approved, and personal attacks or harassment in any form will not be tolerated on The Money Question.

Sexist, racist, misogynist, homophobic, and broad, offensive generalisations about groups of people are simply not allowed.

Our policy on comments in other languages

Unfortunately we only have the capacity to support and moderate discussions that are written in English. Comments written in other languages may not be approved, depending on the context in which they are being shared.
