Biscuit's Comment Policy

Comment Policy

Our comment policy is short and simple. Comments that do not adhere to it will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be banned. Your first few comments will be moderated.

What you can do:

Please don’t spam…

We don’t like it.

…Or troll

We’ll ban you. Trolling includes baiting for arguments, personal attacks, sock-puppetry, identity fraud, and the admittedly widely defined ‘acting like a dick’, as well as biphobia and other offensive behaviours outlined below.

Don’t be offensive

Homophobia, racism, biphobia, ableism, misogyny, and bigotry of any kind are not welcome.  That means no slurs, hate speech, stereotyping or  offensive jokes.

Try to stay civil

…but equally try to be understanding if someone does get heated.

What we’ll do:

We’ll remove offensive comments as soon as we see them.

If a comment gets through that contains hate speech, or is otherwise trollish we’ll do our best to remove them as soon as we can. Both editors have projects outside of Biscuit, and there may be a short period before we can get to it.

We won’t make promises we can’t keep.

We’ll chat to you in the comments, but we generally won’t reply to new comments after two weeks.

We’ll give you a fair chance.

If you don’t follow the rules, we’ll delete your comment and ask you once to do it again. If you do it again, we’ll ban you.

The following two tabs change content below.

Libby is a 30-something Londoner, who spends more time reading picture books than is seemly. She became a bi activist entirely by accident, but now she can't imagine living any other way. In the event of an emergency, she'll have a large gin and tonic, thanks.

    Why is your zine so white specific?

    I hardly see any articles from people of colour, your pictures and articles are all white dominated. I don’t see any Asian names or non Western names, it’s almost like a site for queer Brixiteers. This is what puts me right off supporting Biscuit.

    Sorry, just thought I’d put in my pennies. I’m sure you don’t mean to come off as racist but there’s hardly anything here to reassure your non White readers.

      We do not operate as a magazine and have not for around a year, however when we did our contributors were around 35% people of colour. It is something we monitored closely.
