COMMENT TERM OF SERVICE

While your comments, suggestions and posts on this website – IAMABILL.COM (the “Site”) – are welcome, we expect you to present them in a civilized manner, maintaining a polite tone and using the following guidelines to ensure that your account won’t be suspended. We want to provide a safe environment where you can voice your opinions on important topics. However, this requires your adherence to our rules. Your comments must be associated to what this Site is all about – track, vote and decide on the bills and resolutions.

  • Please do not share other people’s personal, private information without taking their prior permission. We are sure you know that this would be illegal, but in case it slipped your mind for whatever reason, such actions on your part would result in your prosecution by the laws that govern this country. Just saying.
  • Despite the fact that some people might tempt you to use profanities and abusive language on the Site, please don’t give in to their demands. Be the master of your destiny (and your tongue). Should you feel the need to express yourself, try saying Richard Cranium versus the other phrase. If any comments are found to be insulting fellow commenters, or us, they will be removed. Upon persistent use of this tone, you will wake up one day and find that your account has been suspended.
  • Here’s another reason you may find that your account has been suspended. We abhor violence in all its shapes and forms and we hope that you feel the same. Supporting even the remotest idea of this notion through your comments will not be tolerated and we will not be sorry to see you go. Politics is already a full contact sport, so let’s not raise the bar.
  • Yet another reason why your account may be suspended. We created this site because we firmly believe in the motto of ‘For us, by us.’ Please don’t indulge in a discussion with the sole purpose of insulting other commenters or say things that are against who they are as individuals. Remember what Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
  • Check yourself before you wreck yourself. Acid words and phrases that reek of racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic or anti-Semitic references in your comments, will be removed immediately, and (you get the idea) your account will be suspended with immediate ect.
  • Guidelines for a Site comment section are extremely hard to define. There will always be someone who will do something that we will deem rude, mean, disruptive or outrageous – without it having found space on this “terms for comments” board. We will decide what we find objectionable as and when we find it on the Site. And, for those of you thinking of innovative ideas to be offensive, remember that if the Men in Black come looking for you, you won’t remember what you said after the Neuralyzer, but we will.

Now that we have got that out of the way, we are sure that, sometimes, things genuinely go wrong – a technical glitch, for example that results in your comment account being frozen. Please send an email to ask us why your comment was deleted or your account suspended, and we will review your case, and respond as soon as possible.
