However, we want to make sure that our page remains a safe and respectful space for everyone. Therefore, we have outlined some guidelines for comments posted on our website and social media pages. 

1. Comments will be moderated by a member of our social media or editorial team soon after they appear on our sites. 

2. We do not pre-moderate or censor comments, but we will remove comments that breach our terms. This includes comments that are abusive, libelous, attack the person rather than the argument, promote hate, contain excessive profanity, contain spam or are off-topic. 

3. We reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. Only members of our social media or editorial teams will remove comments flagged by users.
