The Society of Editors wants its website to be used as a forum for discussion and debate and to that end is trialling a system of allowing users to post comments.
Comments are moderated and will not automatically appear on the site immediately after submission. While user views are invited, the society is under no obligation to publish or enter into discussions regarding comments.
The site operates within the law and comments which are offensive or legally questionable will not be approved. We will not approve comments that are irrelevant to the story under which they are posted, any comments containing obscenities and any comments containing racist or otherwise discriminatory language. We will not accept comments on court cases or any that are anonymous or use a pen name.
