  • Be patient: users of all ages and abilities may be taking part in the relevant NewsWaya Community.

This mail will also include a warning that continuing to break the rules may result in action being taken against your account or accounts. This action may include your relevant account or accounts being placed into pre-moderation or a temporary or permanent suspension of your ability to participate in any or all of NewsWaya Community areas. If you post or send offensive or inappropriate content anywhere on or to NewsWaya Communities or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on NewsWaya, and NewsWaya considers such behaviour to be serious and/or repeated, NewsWaya may use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop any further such infringements. This may include informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school or email provider about the infringement/s. NewsWaya reserves the right to delete any contribution, or take action against any account, at any time, for any reason.
