3c. Dealing with Online Abuse
The BGA runs email, twitter and Facebook groups. These are regularly monitored by Council members.
Council will not tolerate the use of these platforms for promulgating abuse, irrespective of whether or not the recipient is considered to be at risk of harm.
In the event of abuse occurring then Council may:-
a) Request the abuser to cease immediately and issue an apology, or
b) Moderate the abuser’s posts (so that every post is vetted for content before being promulgated), or
c) Remove the abuser from the platform
and the appropriate response will depend a number of factors including the level and degree of abuse, any contrition displayed by the abuser and any record of previous abuse.
