No, a comment is removed as soon as a moderator finds that it has broken a House Rule. However, there can be times when initial complaints don’t have enough information to tell a moderator why or how it breaks the House Rules.


There will also always be some grey areas when making moderation decisions. In some cases, the breach may be debatable resulting in one moderator passing the comment while another moderator may remove it or refer it to a supervisor. Moderators’ decisions are regularly reviewed by the Central Communities Team who will overturn them in the event of a significant error.
