Moderation Policy

Scope

This Moderation Policy covers online discussions and posting of content on Gutbitez.com.

Moderation Aims

This website includes many differing opinions and experiences. You may find opinions that you disagree with. Our aim at all times is to provide a place where the maximum discussion can take place.

We try to be as fair as we can when moderating but in a large community of users, with many different viewpoints, there will always be some people that will not be happy with our moderation policies. While we regret that this happens, we cannot suit all of the people all of the time and have to make decisions based on what is best for the website overall.

‘THE VIEWS AND OPINIONS EXPRESSED ON THIS WEBSITE DO NOT REFLECT THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF GUTBITEZ.COM IN ANYWAY UNLESS SPECIFIED’
