Social Media Policy (Scotland)

  1. Party membership
    1. Members agree that they are members of the Liberal Democrats, abide by the members' Code of Conduct, and are not subject to any Disciplinary Process
    2. If members are found to be in breach of any of the above conditions, they agree that admins may remove them from any group(s) without notice
  2. Zero tolerance of bigotry
    1. Any racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism etc is grounds for immediate expulsion from the group without warning.
    2. Exceptions may be made in cases where the offence can reasonably be judged to be unintentional, and the offender has offered an apology
  3. Gender inclusive
    1. Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non binary people are people. Comments and posts will be deleted and posters expelled on the basis of this policy without warning.
  4. Moderation
    1. Debate is encouraged, but moderators reserve the right to lock comments on threads, temporarily or permanently, on posts where the debate is deemed to be too heated
    2. Aggressive posts will be judged by moderators and repetition or extremes of this behaviour may lead to a temporary or permanent ban from the group
  5. Reporting comments
    1. Moderators will endeavour to look at any and all reported comments as quickly as they are able, however members should feel free to contact admins directly in cases where they feel urgency is required.
  6. Privacy
    1. SLDW groups are private. All efforts should be made to respect and preserve the privacy of the group, but members should be aware that there is no absolute guarantee of privacy and should judge their posts accordingly.
