"IMPORTANT - Acceptable Posts"
   I'm appalled by what has happened elsewhere on postings

I want to make it very clear that very personal remarks, unconnected with he realities of ballet and dance are not acceptable on Postings. They are not acceptable either morally or legally.

Perhaps before posting people, or the small minority which seem to need clarification on what is abundantly obvious to the many, should think how they would wish to be treated themselves should they be on the receiving end of somebodies vitriol.

Aside from treating people with some reasonable respect because it is right, there is a legal dimension to this where both the site and the poster can be prosecuted for saying things that are not true or cannot be proved. It would be a sad day if we were to be shut down or have to shut down because of the behaviour of a single person. We also have plans and aspirations to grow and these are put in real jeopardy if we are perceived as a site and community which feels free to say gratuitously offensive things about all and sundry.

We have toiled years on this site and the thought that it could be shut by the the knowing stupidity of one is too horrendous to contemplate.

Please post with some respect for everybody concerned, for readers of this site and for the site itself. I'm conceited enough to believe that the UK dance scene would be a poorer place without us.
