MCDC Social Media Rules & Guidelines

These guidelines apply primarily to the Montgomery County, VA Democrats Facebook group; where applicable they also apply to the MCDC Facebook page and Instagram and Twitter accounts. MCDC social media is intended as a social space for Montgomery County Democrats to gather and discuss topics important to us. We all value freedom of speech and expression, but part of that freedom relies on people feeling welcome to contribute to the community. To that end, we have the following moderation rules and guidelines.

Content (including comments) that may be removed:

People may be banned if they:

About Censorship: Occasionally, banning users or removing posts raises questions about censorship. We believe strongly in freedom of speech, but anyone can create a group on Facebook (or several other places online) and encourage people to join. Freedom of speech is not at stake.
Moderators: Moderators are drawn from both the MCDC Executive Committee and invited members of MCDC. Within limits, moderators have the ability to remove posts and ban users.

Current Moderators:
Steve Banks
Jessica Bennett
Steven Cochran
Gretchen Distler
