I Bike TO welcomes online community discussion and encourages you to join the dialogue.
We reserve the right to moderate the posts and comments on this site. We currently allow anonymous and registered users to post forum topics and comments throughout the site. If you have questions about our moderation you can always get hold of us.
Anonymous users' comments will be held in moderation until published (or not).
On topic and Interesting
This site is about cycling, mostly about cycling in Toronto. We will remove or edit posts that are not on topic, overly lengthy, poorly written rants, flat-earth arguments, comments that we feel don't add any real value to the ongoing conversation. We will also not publish comments which we feel are repetitive; comments that merely repeat the same points over and over and over ad nauseum without moving the conversation forward. If that's your modus operandi feel free to start your own blog.
Offensive or Harrassing
There are times when we'll just delete the post or comment. This includes posts or comments that threaten violence, or that are offensive or harassing to particular groups that fall under the Ontario Human Rights Code. We won't accept harassment against women, queer, people of colour, transgendered, children, etc. Nor will we accept harassment against cyclists or any other road users.
Advertising and Spam
We will delete all spam. We use Mollom which catches a lot of the spam. The few that get through are manually deleted. We will also remove posts or comments that only exist to advertise a service, product, or website. The moderators will determine whether someone is genuinely contributing or just advertising. If you want to advertise your service, product, or website on I Bike T.O. please talk to us directly and don't fill our comments or posts with links to your site.
We encourage debate and are happy to see opposing viewpoints intelligently expressed and cogently argued in the comments section.
