Introduction

Please keep your contributions civil, tasteful and relevant
3B NEXUS respects the privacy of all our website users. We want you to enjoy your experience on our website and for you to create a forum for market, business and financial debates with commentaries on company and sector news analysis, market movements, opinions and insights.

A discussion forum is created for each video broadcast published on the 3B PORTAL, providing a comment facility to initiate discussions around the video topic. Publishers may disable the facility if they do not wish to receive viewer comments or feedback on their broadcasts. Only registered users can post comments and all comments are submitted to the respective publisher for approval at their discretion. Personal details such as full name and email address of the author will not be revealed on the public forum, or to the publishers or other users.

Only  'Screen Names' are used to identify the comment author. You may include, at your discretion, your company name and contact information within your comment if you wish to notify the publisher, alternatively, you may use the 'Report' facility to communicate and provide your registered personal contact information directly to the publisher.

If you spot any content or comments on this website you believe to be inappropriate, unlawful or offensive, you should click on the ‘Report’ link below the content to send a report to the publisher. The publisher will be notify and we will investigate any reports submitted and decide whether or not to withdraw the published content.

In order for us to maintain a continuous flow of fresh and up to date information on the forum, comments will remain active until the related video broadcast is removed from streaming on the 3B PORTAL.

House Rules

Guidelines for creating a safe and healthy environment for our users

  1. Submitting comments and participating in the discussion forum: Comments and feedback posted by viewers are administered and published entirely at the discretion of the content owners.

  2. Editing and control: Publishers have the right to control, edit, censor, delete or prevent any inappropriate, offensive or illegal content from being published on their media channel. They can also refuse to publish or block access to anyone from commenting on their content related forum.

  3. Do not make defamatory comments: Such comments include unfounded or unproved allegations (especially of wrongdoing) against a person, organisation or group.

  4. Spamming or flooding through multiple postings: Users should keep the number of their contributions per debate to a reasonable level. Multiple posts from one individual, or a small number of individuals, discourage many others who might otherwise wish to take part.

  5. Do not swear: People of all backgrounds read and contribute to the forum. Please do not use profanities or other words which might offend others.  This may include swear words with asterisks replacing some letters. Comments should never be written in capital letters. This is Internet shorthand for raising your voice. You can make your point perfectly well in lower case so please take the caps lock off.

  6. Do not post personal information: It is not advisable to publicise anyone else's contact details including address, place of employment, name of educational establishment, telephone or mobile number, email address, etc on the public pages of this website. This is for your own safety and that of everyone who uses this service.

  7. Keep your posts relevant: Do not deviate wildly from the topic of the thread or the topic related to the content on which you are commenting. Each debate or discussion should be relevant to the initiated topic. Irrelevant posts lower the value of the debate or discussion for everyone and may be ignored or removed.

  8. Advertising policy: Advertising or the promotion of products or services, or posting of web links (URLs) within your comments is strictly forbidden.

  9. The language of this website is English: Posts containing languages other than English may be removed. Common greetings and salutations in languages other than English may be acceptable.

  10. Do not impersonate: Impersonating someone (including other users) is unacceptable. You must not falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity.

  11. Inappropriate usernames are not allowed: Accounts whose usernames are vulgar or offensive will be suspended.

  12. Do not abuse the Report system: Please do not abuse the Report system. It exists to enable users to provide direct feedback to content providers and to alert the administrators and moderators about content which breaks the rules. The Report system cannot be used to complain about specific 3B NEXUS services in general, use the Contact form fond in the About or the Services page to contact 3B NEXUS.

    • Please do not use the Report system to alert us to multiple postings, spelling mistakes and so on. Anyone who abuses the Report system repeatedly may have their account suspended.
  13. Avoid contempt of court: This means not posting anything that risks prejudicing ongoing or forthcoming court proceedings. Do not discuss court cases that are currently ongoing or forthcoming.

  14. Do not incite people to commit any crime: This includes incitement of racial, religious or homophobic hatred.

  15. Ownership of content: Do not post content which you have copied from someone else and in respect of which you do not own the copyright.

  16. Offensive messages: Do not post messages that are unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, homophobic or racially offensive. Under the Communications Act 2003, a person is guilty of an offence if they send "a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character" by means of an electronic communications network.
