Mindful Money's content attempts to mirror the viewpoints, interests and conversations of the online investment community. It's editorial that's focused more on your interests and the things that matter to you. We want Mindful Money to be a space where the online investment community can analyse and dissect complex issues and debate the issues that matter intelligently and respectfully.
Mindfulness is about making the links that others don't, paying attention to history and voices from outside the industry, making the effort to speak in ordinary language, taking the long view, paying attention to contrarian insiders and keeping an eye out for black swans.
We read every comment made on the Mindful Money site as your opinions and analysis inform so much of what we do. We reserve the right to moderate these comments to make sure Mindful Money can remain a safe, inclusive platform for intelligent discussion. There are a number of ground-rules which we expect all of our community to abide by.
Please stay ‘on-topic'
Whilst many of the topics discussed on Mindful Money are wide-ranging it is important that each post made by commenters remains relevant to the original story. If a comment is posted that is unrelated to the original topic it may be removed.
Abuse or personal attacks on authors, journalists and community members will not be tolerated.
Please respect the views, beliefs and personal preferences of other when contributing
We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other contributions that could be interpreted as hate-speech. We will not tolerate any language that is considered threatening, violent or extremely offensive.
Please be aware that we reserve the right to remove comments that may put us in legal jeopardy.
Please avoid defamatory comments, contempt of court, breaking a court injunction and breaching copyrighted material.
Act with maturity, consideration and mindfulness. Respect others opinions and be aware that while your own opinions may cause disagreement, they should never cause offense.
We reserve the right to remove community privileges from any individual who seriously, wilfully or persistently ignores these guidelines.
When comments are removed we will attempt to email each user explaining why their comment has been moderated, and any advice or instruction given should be respected and adhered to.
Even if only part of a user comment is perceived to have breached the community rules the whole comment may be removed. It is also sometimes necessary to delete subsequent postings which make reference to the original (removed) comment to preserve the flow of the discussion.
Because we are ultimately responsible for all the content on Mindful Money, all actions and decisions taken by our moderators are final. We hope that any action we do have to take is to preserve the high standards of the site and for the benefit of the whole community.
