How To Post... And Not Get Suspended

Or worse: Deleted!

Written by Danielle Masterson

Here at Patch, we love community involvement and debate. After all, it's what Patch is built on. Without community contributors, we wouldn't have this wonderful neighborhood feel right here on our computers and devices. 

But, how can you can talk on Glendora Patch without getting yourself deleted or suspended by that "mean new Patch admin who emailed me this week?" 

It's simple. Follow the Patch Terms of Service. 

When you all signed up, you agreed to a series of terms, which you can re-read here --> glendora.patch.com/terms. While we don't beg you to use your real name, it sure would be nice. And while it's funny to use names that would offend other people, it would be neighborly to use an alias that is harmless to others. And we want to be neighborly, right? 

Now, here comes the important part: 

Patch is not here for personal vendettas. It's here for news and community debate/conversations. So if Patch admins see personal vendettas and stuff that doesn't involve the entire community? Chances are that admin is going to just delete it. If you need to have those conversations? Take it offline. 

Here are other reasons why you may be deleted or suspended or by a Patch admin, or by a user: 

Your post or comment: 
1) is abusive, profane, defamatory; 
2) infringes on copyright; 
3) violates privacy; 
4) threatens or harasses; 
5) is violent; 
6) is illegal; 
7) is spam; 
8) is a virus; 
9) is inaccurate or misleading. 

Remember, opinions are not misleading, they are welcome on Glendora Patch. So is debate. So, debate away, Glendora! Just leave the name-calling and personal vendettas out of it.

Larry S. I found some pretty over the top postings from YOU, so before you start melting, you might want to get off your high and mighty horse! Get the hint - posting them will be next.

You and Smith both failed reading comprehension, figured that. You guys keep crying I'll keep posting. Good night.

There is NO crying in politics Bill C. rather it's a drawn out process of exposing bullies and other unsavory named individual's like yourself you have issues with facts an the truth as it stares you in the face. So is there is any crying it must be on your part.

Mark, I do have to say I've always agreed with Bill C. in one aspect...you do seem to be delusional. I have never posted over the top comments and as far as I can tell, Bill C has only expressed his opinions, which is his constitutional right. I have not found him to be vulgar or excessive. Do I always agree with what he writes? No. But I defend his right to say what he wants.

Larry S. I too would agree you and Bill C. have a lot delusional posting and so called postings have spilled fourth from your small theater's. Your both very short sighted along with vulgar in your earlier posting on other topics in Patch.com you are of course free to do what ever you want, I give you that right! Neither of you seem to deal with a topic objectively rather your bias and opinioned views are tainted with racists leanings.
