Comment system

The website includes a comment and user review system (collectively Comments) and we aim to establish exchange of information and opinions about the events and places we list. Users submitting Comments are requested to follow our guidelines and must comply with the law. This will enable dissent and debate to be a healthy part of such exchange.

Guidelines:
– comments should be focused on the topic addressed and avoid swear words. Use of CAPITAL LETTERS is nearly always unhelpful.
– users value well presented and written material: WWS will remove Comments that are poorly presented.
– comments should only submit URLs that are directly relevant to the place or event. Obviously commercial or spam-like contributions will be removed.
– users should not submit Comments that could harass on grounds of sex, race, gender or disability, or is offensive to others sexuality.
– users should not submit Comments that are obscene, threatening, menacing, abusive, or in breach of confidence.
– users must avoid Comments that identify an individual in an invidious manner. WWS will remove Comments that may be libelous.
– users must not post material which is the copyright of a third party.
– WWS reserves the right to edit or delete comments without reason.
By your use of the comment system you indicate your consent to WWS, at its discretion, determining that a breach of these guidelines shall be deemed a breach of our terms and conditions of use of the website.
