- Users are allowed a maximum of two posts per day. This policy is
part of hard-worn experience from local political discussion forums
around the world, and it has been proven to encourage people to think
and consider more before they post.
- The purpose of each discussion is for constructive debate on the
issues set forth in each email a MP sends. You can write to your
MP asking for him/her to discuss certain issues, but you must stick
roughly to the topic raised.
- The following behaviours are deemed unacceptable, and will result
in your posts being deleted, and/or your account being removed: ad
hominem attacks on a MP or other users, irrelevant and off-topic
responses (see 2), and partisan posturing which isn't really trying to
solve the problems being discussed. This may all seem a bit tough, but
HearFromYourMP is a public space, and we reserve all rights to keep it
a nice one.
- We do not allow you to hit reply and write directly back to your MP— this is to prevent their email address being harvested for spam.
Rather, we encourage private responses back through
linked from the bottom of every new message email.
