The Wikileaks Discussion is an independent online discussion community
The Wikileaks Discusssion / Supporters Forum (www.wikileaks-forum.com) is an independent online discussion community run by WikiLeaks supporters.
Our goal is to create an open space for people to share their thoughts and ideas on Wikileaks and other topics without feeling as if they are going to be attacked for holding the particular views that they do. Although we encourage open discussion about the topics discussed on the forum, we also recognize the need to moderate in the event of malicious or spam-like posts being created.
Everyone's thoughts and feelings are important to us on the forum and believe that constructive discussion - including constructive criticism - can take place with civility.
The Wikileaks Forum is an opportunity for its users to stay informed on the progress and actions of the organization and to show their support. The forum stands for the values Wikileaks has defended since its creation, such as freedom of speech and information but we also recognize the need to maintain the safety of our members. These values are the founding principles of this forum and define the rules we have set and ask the users to respect.
Wikileaks believes freedom of speech and freedom of information to be paths toward improving the world we live in and those should in no way be used as a pretext for racism, religious vilification, homophobia or any form of hatred.
Wikileaks strives to maintain transparency through the leaking of secret documents from governments, institutions and private companies. It does not stand as pro or against any government, institution or private company.
While using this forum we ask you to respect these values. Users come from all over the world and have different backgrounds. We encourage constructive dialogues: this is not the place to express hatred and personal resentment.
When posting always make sure that your words cannot be perceived as harmful or insulting to individuals. Criticisms should be addressed with regard to policies as well as toward defined actions or governments.
Comments should never be directed in lieu of a country or a population or a culture. Keep in mind when writing your thoughts that someone from across the world entertaining a different culture may be reading it.
Thanks… and enjoy the forum!
