Instructions for Comment Moderators

If a comment on breaks UUA commenting rules, the moderator should follow these procedures.

  1. Decide who else needs to be involved (other UUA staff, others) and be sure they get copied on all messages.

  2. Delete the problematic comment. Drupal automatically emails the poster and the Web Team to indicate that the comment was deleted.

  3. If the problem caused trouble that needs to be addressed publicly, post a comment on the page. Quote the rule that was broken and explain what went wrong and that the material was removed from the site. Don't mention the name of the person who broke the rule. Mention that subscribers can write to the UUA's Web Team at web [at] uua [dot] org if they disagree with your decision.

  4. If the person who posted the material responds with questions or objections, the Web Team may contact you for more information.

In the event of repeat problems with the same person:

  1. Send a message to the Web Team at web [at] uua [dot] org with details of the problem comment(s), the person’s username, dates, and what actions you took. Forward any other relevant correspondence.

  2. If the person breaks commenting rules repeatedly, the Web Team may cancel the person’s account.

Contact the Web Team at web [at] uua [dot] org with questions.
