We reserve the right to remove inappropriate comments, including those that contain obscene language (including acronyms) or sexual content, promote hatred, threaten or defame any person or organization, violate the legal ownership interest of another party, promote illegal activity, are spamming (including posting the same comment on multiple posts), promote commercial services or products, or are not topically related to the subject of the forum or a particular posting.

The purposes of this policy include preventing harassment, bullying and discrimination; limiting public exposure to profanity and obscenities; ensuring a safe workplace for UBC employees, both physically and mentally; preventing the inappropriate use of UBC resources for unlawful, criminal or private commercial enterprises; and ensuring that the conversation on these channels, where people come specifically to discuss UBC issues, is topical to those issues.
