Commenting policy

A Word in Time Daily Bible Study

This is a safe space where people should be able to reflect and contribute their thoughts without fear of ridicule or criticism.   Comments should engage around the questions posed at the end of each study. It is not a place for general conversation or banter.  Please note that we will ban users who make comments that are judged by us, the managers of this website, to be disrespectful, bullying, abusive or otherwise inappropriate to a bible study.

General Commenting Policy

Commenters must not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. This is not humorous and legal action can be taken against you. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you, or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate to this website. 

The Methodist Church does not control the information on the commenting areas, and cannot confirm the validity of posts or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The Church is under no obligation to monitor the comments. However, it reserves the right at all times to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, for any reason whatsoever, in its sole discretion.

The messages express the views of the author, not necessarily the views of this forum. This policy goes for member profile information as well. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator of this forum immediately. We will remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

Commenters remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum, and any related websites to this forum. The Methodist Church reserves the right to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any information posted by you.

We advise that you keep the username appropriate. Never give your password out to another member, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to never use another member's account to post messages. You should not post comments under different aliases, but keep to one username.

Please note that with each comment, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this policy.
