Discussion Group Policy
MEREDITH CORPORATION DISCUSSION GROUP POLICY
Among the several policies are the following:
Information that you place on our service must be your own original content. You are responsible for assuring that any material (text, images, multimedia) you provide does not violate, plagiarize, or infringe upon the right of any third party, including copyright, trademark, or proprietary rights. If nonoriginal content is included in your posting, you must obtain permission from the content owner and provide due credit."
You are responsible to ensure your post is not restricted by copyright and does not violate the fair use policy. In general, graphics and quotations of more than a few lines are subject to deletion.
"KEEP IT CLEAN
Please do not place any material on our service that could be considered offensive, indecent, abusive, hateful, harassing, libelous, or unlawful. Our audience tends to be family-oriented (including minors), and we have the right, but not the obligation, to remove, edit, or relocate any content that we feel violates the standards of our site. Because of the real-time nature of our forums, it is not always possible for us to remove offensive material immediately."
You have access to many places on the internet to express your opinions. If you are not comfortable with the application of above stated discussion group policy in regard to your expressions you may wish to post those particular thoughts on other sites. Agriculture.com is primarily an online extension of Successful Farming magazine and may not be the most appropriate place to express your views on non-agriculture topics.
Posts that violate the spirit and intent of "KEEP IT CLEAN" are subject to removal without explanation or recourse. Members may be removed and banned from the site.
When expressing yourself take care to avoid language or graphics that is offensive, abusive, hateful and harassing. Avoid expression that may be construed as racist, intolerant, personally attacking, derogatory and demeaning. This applies equally to third parties and concepts as well as to fellow forum members. It is quite easy to express disagreement with a person, organization or idea and remain within the letter and spirit of the Discussion Group Policy.
