Marin Post Community Guidelines

The Marin Post is dedicated to providing you with an online platform to share ideas, news, and opinions. To preserve a positive and professional environment we ask that you please follow some basic ground rules.

  • Please treat fellow members of the community with respect and good will. Act in good faith and assume others are acting in good faith as well.
  • Be conscientious about the content you post on the Marin Post. Text can sometimes be ambiguous and convey a harsher tone than intended. Similarly, be generous in how you interpret what others write to ensure that you understand their intentions.
  • Do not post or link content that is graphic (including depicting gratuitous violence) or offensive to others, or inconsistent with the community's goals of sharing ideas, news, and opinions.
  • Do not intentionally make misrepresentations, post false information, or attempt to mislead others.
  • Do not infringe the rights of others, including their intellectual property rights and privacy.
  • Do not libel or personally attack others. If you must criticize, criticize the content and not the writer, and try to do so constructively.
  • Do not make comments or post content that is hateful, racist, sexist, homophobic, trans-phobic, ageist, explicitly sexual or otherwise intolerant of or directed against others.
  • Do not make unfounded accusations or threats (including threats of legal action, physical violence or illegal acts), or other forms of emotional or psychological attacks.

NOTE: The Marin Post strives to maintain a high level of journalistic integrity and quality of content that is intellectually rigorous and offers an evidence-based exchange of ideas. The Marin Post reserves the right to remove any content that in its sole opinion is insensitive, false, excessive, offensive, harmful, defamatory, or otherwise inappropriate. The Marin Post may block or remove any content that violates these guidelines, and may block, suspend, disable or delete the accounts of users, who repeatedly violate these guidelines.
