Blog Commenting – House Rules

Here is a list of House Rules that must be considered whenever you submit a comment on a Blog post.

Comments that break these rules may be deleted or removed at the discretion of The Club. In extreme or persistent cases, the membership number associated with the contravening comments may be barred from making further submissions.

The purpose of allowing commenting on The Club’s website is to provide the opportunity to share with fellow campers your thoughts on our Blog posts. In general, please treat other people with respect and remember that something you intend as a joke or feel is harmless can be easily misconstrued.

Comments cannot be submitted without an email address (email addresses won’t be made public). This is only so we know you are a real person. A point of contact is required should we need to contact you regarding your comment. Your name and comment will be displayed, so if you’d rather your full name wasn’t displayed choose an alternative username.

To ensure your comment is posted it’s important to avoid:

  • Abusive or threatening language, or those that incite hatred against any social or ethnic group
  • Sexually explicit or indecent text, or content containing obscenities or profanities
  • Potentially defamatory comments, or anything that you have not created yourself
  • Overly negative comments about the blog poster
  • Reviews containing personal details (such as your email, phone number, password or address)
  • Reviews that condone or promote illegal activities
  • Spamming (i.e. the submission of the same or very similar comments many times)
  • Writing in languages other than English, overuse of text speak or code of any kind
  • Providing links/url’s to other sites that would contravene these house rules
  • Advertising, commercial promotion or campaigning of any kind
  • Impersonation of any person, alive or deceased, real or fictional

We at The Camping and Caravanning Club take seriously any grievances and/or complaints by members and non-members alike. We will of course address any comments that appear to be a complaint, however we would not suggest this as the best platform to raise such issues.

These guidelines will be under constant review and revisions will be made on a regular basis where appropriate. As always, we welcome feedback and suggestions from our members.

Comments posted are the personal opinions of the individual contributor(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Camping and Caravanning Club or Camping in the Forest.
