We welcome and encourage open discussion on posAbilities’ and other associated social media sites – including but not limited to our blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn pages and online story-sharing forums – and look forward to any comments, stories and experiences you want to share.
We make reasonable efforts to monitor participation to ensure that you stay on topic, are courteous and avoid making offensive comments. Please be aware that once you post something online, there’s the potential for thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of people to read your words, even years from now. As a result, we suggest that you exercise caution when posting on any of our social media sites.
That’s the plain English version. Here it is in legal language:
The opinions and or views expressed on posAbilities’ and other associated social media platforms, including, but not limited to, our blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn pages, represent the thoughts of individual bloggers and online communities, and not those necessarily of posAbilities or any of its stakeholders.

While posAbilities makes reasonable efforts to monitor and/or moderate content posted on its social media platforms, we do not moderate all comments and cannot always respond in a timely manner to online requests for information.
posAbilities reserves the sole right to review, edit and/or delete any comments it deems are inappropriate. Comments including but not limited to the following may be deleted or edited by the moderators:
- Abusive or hurtful comments about a blogger or another participant
- Off-topic and redundant comments (this includes promotion of events, groups, pages, websites, organizations and programs not related to or affiliated with posAbilities)
- Comments that use foul language or “hate speech” (for example, including but not limited to racial, ethnic or gender bashing language)
- Personal attacks or defamatory statements or comments (i.e., making negative personal or untrue comments about a participant), instead of just criticizing his/her posting, opinion or comments
- Comments that violate the privacy of our persons served and their families
