MW@P Policies

[<<<BACK to Broadcast]


Commenting Policy:

You can leave comments on our show at our Ustream Broadcast page.  All comments are subject to my approval before they appear on the page.  I approve comments once each day, because that's just how I roll.

Chat Guidelines/Policies:

In general, treat others as you would like to be treated, and we'll get along just fine.

Your chat privileges are completely at my discretion.  If you choose not to adhere to the chat guidelines and policies, I will choose to ban you from my chat.  

This is not a freedom of speech issue, because I am not Teh Government, so please don't waste your time or mine by emailing me to complain about how I am infringing your freedom of speech.

The following behavior will get you banned from my chats:

  • Hate speech is not welcome here. All hate speech in the chat will Fly, Fly! into the great Internet Deleted-Bin.

    • My definition of Hate Speech includes:

      • Threats of violence or harassment directed toward anyone at all in the world, including the hosts, guests, or other people in the chat. 

      • Comments which are racist, sexist, disablist, ageist, homophobic, trans-phobic, or fat-phobic.

    • Differences of opinion, respectfully expressed, are welcome, and will not be a cause for banning.  Ad-hominem attacks, threats, and hate speech will be.

    • You MAY (I said: MAY) get a warning from the moderators before you are banned, if your comment is marginal or questionable in terms of these guidelines.  If you disrespect a mod's warning, you will be banned.

  • Spam is not welcome here.  If you spam the chat, you'll be banned immediately -- no second chances.  If you want to advertise something on my show, or want to announce something you think the viewers would be interested in, you can contact me.

Call-In Policy:

During some shows, we will accept call-ins from individuals via Skype.  The correct Skype handle to call for this show is:  MadWoman at Play

If we are not taking call-ins for a particular show, we simply won't pick up.

If we are taking call-ins, it will be first-called/first-answered.  

If you call in and launch into any type of speech that violates our chat guidelines, we will hang up on you immediately, and block your future calls.
