While Neighbourly is primarily a space for community-related discussion, we understand some neighbours will also enjoy chatting about current affairs and potentially contentious issues (for example vaccinations, politics, government decisions, religion etc).
Neighbourly is comfortable with healthy conversation taking place between neighbours providing the discussion remains respectful and does not promote behaviours which may put the community at risk.
- Fake news, misinformation, conspiracy theories or any other content that cannot be backed up with official information is not tolerated on Neighbourly, and will be removed from groups and the general newsfeed. Find out more in our Misinformation article
- If debates about controversial topics are causing disharmony among neighbours, you may be required to take the discussion away from the general newsfeed and post in a group or via private message instead
- To avoid agenda pushing, we ask that members refrain from posting about the same topic more than once within a period of two weeks. If you'd like to chat about this subject more often, please consider setting up a group. See our Agenda Pushing article for more information
- The Neighbourly Guidelines still apply in groups. If group content is reported by a member, our moderation team will review the messages as per our Guidelines.
