Please read before posting on coronavirus/COVID-19

Post by LadyGeek » Fri Mar 20, 2020 7:46 am

From the Advisory Board,

We understand that many people want to discuss the coronavirus. However, as a primarily investment-related forum, this is not the place for medical / political / social posting about the virus. We allow COVID-19 posting only if the post and replies have a financial component.

There is a single exception, Bogleheads community discussion - Coronavirus, which is the place to vent your concerns of a general nature. This is no different than we've done for previous events which have impacted the Bogleheads community.

Due to the high volume of non-financial COVID-19 posts in the investing threads, and the burden on our all-volunteer moderation team, we will be taking the following actions immediately for posts related to COVID-19:

1) We will be removing posts without notifying the member.

2) At our discretion, we will prevent you from logging in for a period of 1 day. Attempts to login to the forum will be blocked with a message directing you to this thread, along with a date and time that the block will be lifted. (The forum software message uses the term "banned until ...".)

This block will not be subject to Advisory Board review.

3) Repeat violations will be subject to further moderator action.

Thank you for understanding and stay safe.

(This thread is in the Forum Issues and Administration forum, but appears in all forums.)

There is one additional non-investing thread for coronavirus/COVID-19: Coronavirus (Consumer Issues) How you are preparing?
