We reserve the right to redirect or curtail conversations which descend into flame-wars based on ingrained partisanship or generalisations.
We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate-speech, or contributions that could be interpreted as such

Keep it relevant.
Be aware that you may be misunderstood...You can help to keep the Guardian community areas open to all viewpoints by maintaining a reasonable tone, even in unreasonable circumstances.
The platform is ours, but the conversation belongs to everybody. When we all take responsibility for maintaining an appropriate and constructive environment, the debate itself is improved and everyone benefits.
