RASA Bulletin Editorial Policy v1


Social media policy

RASA uses social media to encourage exchange of information in an open and transparent environment.  Social Media offers a responsive (real time) informal platform for members to access and share information on their computers, tablets and mobile devices.

We promote open and honest discourse.  In the interests of maintaining harmony and balanced commentary, we ask all users to exercise good judgement when posting comments or replying to a comment.  We encourage open debate and analysis of commentary.

However, we will not tolerate:

* derogatory or obscene posts

* sledging or personal attacks

* potentially defamatory comments

* any form of sexism, racism or vilification

* any postings that are regarded as being in “poor form” or irrelevant to the objectives of RASA

Postings that are inaccurate or misleading may be corrected or deleted by the Administrators.

Proper copyright and reference laws or standards should be observed when posting.

RASA Facebook administrators reserve the right to remove or delete inappropriate postings and block repeat offenders from accessing the page.
