The Podium Cafe Code!
This site is a place to speak freely. We don't censor speech and don't suppress commentary. While we spend MUCH more time in awe of the sport and the riders than in criticism, if you want to say "Rabobank screwed up again," go ahead. The only limits are the basic limits of decency/offensive speech and libel. With one exception...
Disrespect toward other Podium Cafe members will not be tolerated. This is our one iron-clad rule. I am happy to say that despite a thousand visitors a day and god-knows how many comments, I probably have to remind people of this about once a year. Oh, and feel free to avoid mentioning politics; it never helps. You'll find this a very collegial community, unless you're the president of the UCI.
We have the same concerns and policies toward copyrights as any blog. Never cut-and-paste a whole article from another source into a comment or diary. Instead, copy only the minimum amount needed, then insert a link into your piece which will direct readers to the original. Don't take copyrighted photos without permission. Contact me by email if you have any questions or concerns.
And that is it. Enjoy!
