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 criticise ideas, not people. When you post, especially in response to another person, please do so respectfully.

Stay on topic

Please ensure your posts are appropriate responses to the article or topic you are engaging with. Our moderators may intervene to wind down unproductive debate, and may remove posts that are overly negative or off-topic. Posts that make controversial assertions about topics not related to monetary reform or heterodox economics may be removed.

In particular, any posts 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 likely to be removed.

Choose your words wisely

Generally speaking, posts that contain excessive profanity or aggressive language are not allowed. Anything that would generally be considered to be hateful or inflammatory – especially 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. We reserve the right to delete posts and ban accounts for violations of our community guidelines.

Our policy on comments in other languages

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