4. Do not break the law or encourage others to do so (this includes defamation, breaching privacy, breaching another person’s intellectual property rights such as copyright, condoning illegal activity and contempt of court).

5. Do not post personal information (addresses, phone numbers, email addresses or other online contact details) relating either to yourself or others.

6. Do not make any commercial endorsement or promotion of any product, service or publication – this will be judged as spam and deleted.
