Comments Policy

Biznews was built as a platform for its community. To promote interaction between community members and contributors, we use Disqus, the gold standard in comment tools.

The Disqus section appears underneath each story – it is easy to participate in the comment area by signing up on the site or by registering directly on Disqus itself by clicking here.

All visitors to Biznews are encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas and opinions, whether or not they agree with what appears on the site. But we do not countenance hate speech, profanity or self-promotion.

Comments are moderated by our editors to prevent unscrupulous businesses trying to promote their products through the system – and others attempting to promote their own agendas.

Following assessment, regular commentators who post responsibly are afforded “trusted” status after which their comments will appear instantly. Contact us if you believe you deserve this status.

We do reserve the right, however, to revoke this “trusted” privilege if it is abused; and to remove comments which are reported to us as inappropriate or false.
