Terms and conditions
Congratulations – you found our terms and conditions. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the wasted two minutes you’ll spend scanning over the below policies to do with our comments, privacy, mailing list and general demeanour.
Here at Limited News, we welcome all forms of interaction on our site, our social media presences and, if you ever manage to track us all down, in real life.
As did John Milton before us, we believe that true freedom of speech comes from unmoderated Disqus WordPress plugins, and as a result we will not block, prevent or pre-moderate comments. We will, however, be watching you all very closely (sometimes with binoculars from that dark car across the street), and we reserve the right to delete or edit comments that defy one or more of the following rules:
- No racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic or otherwise ‘being a cunt’ comments.
- Trolling is only acceptable if it’s being initiated and undertaken by us. We’re sure you understand this distinction.
- No advertising. Take your shitty student theatre show spiel elsewhere, buddy.
- Wanting to protect your identity when commenting is fine, but undertaking sockpuppetry isn’t. We’re not idiots, we know the difference.
- Keep it short – we’re the writers, not you.
- Stay on point. If you ramble off on to the topic of chem trails on a post about cows, yeah nah.
Please note, regular rule-breakers may be blacklisted, blocked, outed, ridiculed and/or waterboarded.
What we know about you, our dear reader, is between you and us. We will never on-sell any information collected through this site. This includes your IP address, email address, social media accounts or other contact details. That said, you know how that Internet thing is fairly public? Yeah, well, whatever you do post on here can kinda be seen by everyone else. Remember that.
Some of our writers chose to operate under pseudonyms, for reasons that are theirs and theirs alone. Back off with your wild assumptions and stop being a paranoid idiot.
For the purposes of analytics, link tracking, social media integration and other such things, we do collect information about your location, browser, computer system, in-bound links and other information where available. Before you don the tinfoil hat, just recognise that all we’re talking about is Google Analytics and a Facebook plugin. Calm the fuck down and go away.
Our email list is entirely opt-in. If you didn’t opt-in yourself but you find yourself on there, clearly you know somehow who is a hilarious comedian. Click the unsubscribe button and keep us out of it.
Yes, we are made up of people who have political, societal, ideological or religious affiliations. No, this does not mean we are in the pocket of Big Tobacco/Alcohol/Murdoch/Pokies/Charity/Government/Think Tank/University/Apples. We are ‘people’ with our own ‘thoughts’ and ‘feelings’. The only thing we’re a front for is our illegal trade of stolen iPads.
Ignore the Nigerian lottery manager
We do have spam filters, and no, they don’t always work. Deal with it.
We used to censor out all the naughty words, but then we realised that was a bit dumb. So now we don’t. ‘Fuck’ is a perfectly acceptable word and you’ll learn to live with it, cunt.
The bit where we point out that commenters aren’t site admins.
We have no control over the people who choose to visit and interact with our humble little site. The opinions expressed in the form of comments are entirely the responsibility of the person who posts them. Whilst we are more than receptive to having our attention drawn to comments that may defy the above rules, we accept no liability for them.
