Dan Morris Show Blog Policy
The Dan Morris Show is easy to identify with and all of us are very passionate about what we do on a daily basis. At the Dan Morris Show we believe in open communication and you are encouraged to tell the world and share your passion. Whether you do so by participating in our blog, wiki, online social network or any other form of online publishing or discussion is completely up to you. However, these new ways of communication are changing the way we talk to each other, target audiences and partners. In order to avoid any problems or misunderstandings, we have come up with a few guidelines to provide helpful and practical advice for you when operating on the Dan Morris Show website, Blog or Social Media outlets and of its brands.
- Dan Morris is the official spokesperson for the Dan Morris Show or its brands, so if you are not he you must make clear that you are speaking for yourself and not for Dan Morris. You can use a disclaimer like “The postings on this site are my own and do not necessarily represent the position, strategy or opinions of the “Dan Morris Show”. Please always write in the first person and don’t use the Dan Morris Show or any of it’s brands . And please consider that even anonymous postings on social media or other venues can be traced back to the Dan Morris Show.
- You are personally responsible for the content you publish on blogs, wiki or any other form of user-generated media. Please remember that the internet never forgets. This means everything you publish will be visible to the world for a very, very long time. Common sense is a huge factor here. If you are about to publish something that makes you even the slightest bit uncomfortable, review.
- Just because information is on your companies internal network, it is not ok to let the rest of the world know about it. If an item features the sentence “for internal use only” then that is exactly what it means and it is absolutely not meant to be forwarded to anyone or provided on the Dan Morris Show blog. No exceptions.
- Respect your audience. Don’t use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, or engage in any conduct that would not be acceptable. We will remove your post and block you from any further ability to post.
- Think about consequences.Using your public voice to trash or embarrass your employer, your customers, your co-workers or even yourself is not okay – and not very smart.
- Have you posted something that just wasn’t true? Be the first to respond to your own mistake. In a blog, if you choose to modify an earlier post, make it clear that you have done so.
- Please respect copyright. If it is not yours, don’t use it. It is very simple. It is that person’s choice to share his or her material with the world, not yours. Before posting someone else’s work, please check with the owner first.
- Don’t cite or reference clients, partners or suppliers without their approval. When you do make a reference, where possible, link back to the source.
- Even if you act with the best intentions, you must remember that anything you put out there about yourself or others can potentially harm them. Please act responsibly.
- Finally, anything deemed by the Dan Morris Show to be offensive, untrue, mean-spirited or damaging in any other way will be removed immediately without notification to the blogger and the blogger may be subject to removal. It is OK to be passionate, it is not OK to be harmful.
