Be Polite to Others and Their Opinions – This includes other bloggers and KDA personnel. News articles and event write-ups, the use of acronyms, communications you make through the Contact Form, how you format your text, shoutouts and any images you use should all be respectful. For more information read the section ‘User Comments and Submissions.’
Safe Place – The Kirkland Downtown Association believes that the blog should be a safe place for all, including children who may have access to our site. When writing your blog, believe that you are also writing for a young child. Be an educator and, by example, teach the younger members of our community to be respectful online.
We Check Your Posts Out – We do moderate your comments before activating them. The Kirkland Downtown Association reserves the right to exclude your comment. The KDA welcomes and encourages bloggers to voice their opinion regardless of their political opinions; race or ethnicity; creed; color; national origin; sex; marital or family status; sexual orientation including gender identity or expression; age; religion; or disability. However, if we find that your comments are inappropriate or too sensitive for younger users, we may feel unable to process your blog. There may also be server issues which prevent us from activating your blog, or we may be overwhelmed with the number of blogs and are unable to process all of them.
BE KIND TO EACH OTHER.
