Terms and conditions of use
Please read and accept these rules below before commenting. All of the comments you post on this website are treated confidentially and moderated.
Stay safe – don't include any personal information in your comments, such as your surname, email address, street address and phone number.
Don't include the personal details of anyone else in your posts (including boyfriend/girlfriend, parents, guardians, teachers, social workers or group leaders).
Don't go off topic - keep your comments relevant to the "This Is Abuse" debate. People want their opinions to be heard – don't shout them down.
Don't post crude, racist, offensive, violent or vulgar messages to the site.
Treat everyone with respect – even if someone has a different view to your own, don't let it get personal.
Don't glamorise illegal or dangerous activities, including violence of any kind. It's ok to talk about your experiences but you shouldn't encourage others to do anything illegal or dangerous.
Don't write anything that's untrue about anyone else (including boyfriend/girlfriend, parents, guardians, teachers, social workers, group leaders and famous people). Don't write anything that could harm anyone else's reputation.
This isn't a dating site – it's a platform to talk about teenage relationship abuse and your opinions on the matter; don't use it to meet or flirt with other people.
Don't write everything in CAPS – it's the equivalent of shouting and isn't polite or easy for everyone to read.
Don't post entire messages in text speak – it's ok to shorten some words but not everyone understands text speak or finds it easy to read.
It's ok to post links to other websites as long as they're relevant to the "This Is Abuse" debate and don't break the house rules in any way.
Don't break copyright rules. This means that you shouldn't post text you didn't write.
