THE SHORT VERSION

RULES OF THE ROAD

Here are things that will get your comment or forum post removed and quite possibly get you banned. Note that this is not a comprehensive list. Our moderators reserve the right to remove anything we deem inappropriate.

Above all, our team of moderators works to keep conversation here friendly, engaging, helpful, and productive. If we feel a comment or forum post is harming that endeavor, we’ll take action.

See any of the above? You can help us out by flagging (more on that below). Any comments that reply to spammy/inappropriate/trolling comments will also be deleted with the original comment, so don’t reply — just flag!

ISN’T THIS CENSORSHIP?

Well, no, and yes. We’re trying to foster great conversation, and we will remove comments that harm that endeavor. You’re free to say whatever you like in other places, but not here. At TECHOBIG, we have a different standard than the rest of the internet, working very hard to keep the conversation informative and fun. The bottom line is that the editors and moderators have the final say of whether it fits our community guidelines.
