Social media house rules

We welcome all opinions

We welcome your opinions both positive and negative. We understand that you may not always necessarily agree with us or other commenters. However when stating your point please do not abuse, use offensive language or go off topic to us or other people on our page.

Your content is public

Once your comment is online it is in the public domain  - everyone with internet access can read it. Don't forget that you are legally responsible for what you submit.

Language and relevance

Do not use swear words or offensive language. Keep your submissions relevant to the story or topic. Do not insult other contributors or discuss the non-appearance or removal of any content. If you have a question about any content removed contact us at 


Spamming us repetitively with the same point – even after we’ve made an effort to engage with you and address your issues - deters other followers from engaging with us.  This behaviour will not be tolerated.

Report abuse

If you are offended by a user’s post please report it to Facebook/Twitter. If you would like it removed by us, please contact us at

No libel or other abuse

You must not make or encourage comments which are:

*defamatory, false or misleading;
*insulting, threatening or abusive
*obscene or of a sexual nature
*offensive, racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or discriminatory against any religions or other groups.


Please respect people's privacy. You are not allowed to submit confidential or private information. For example, you must not upload the telephone number, email address or any other contact details of any other person.

No advertising

Any postings on our Facebook wall must be relevant to the community. If they are to advertise a commercial service or product they will be removed. Any questions contact us on 

Removal of content, warnings and suspensions

If you breach any of the above rules we will use the following steps:

1. Stonewall Scotland will always try to resolve the issue first with anyone who violates the house rules
2. If Stonewall Scotland needs to moderate or delete posts, we will always explain our reasons for doing so, pointing to the relevant section of the house rules
3. Stonewall Scotland reserves the right to ban followers from our pages for serious violations or repeat violations of the house rules

We want Stonewall Scotland’s pages to be an open, welcoming and constructive space. We really don’t want to have to remove any content so please do keep in the spirit of our pages. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
