Moderation and Comments Policy

Welcome to an official social media account sponsored by the Indiana Archives and Records Administration.

IARA’s social media platforms are a family-friendly outlet to promote our agency’s activities, events, and programs.

We encourage questions and comments on content. We moderate IARA-sponsored social media profiles and pages but are not responsible for content generated by users. We accept comments but are not obligated to respond to comments.

We will moderate comments that include the following:

  • Obscene, profane, rude or vulgar language or images
  • Personal attacks or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups
  • Threats or defamatory statements
  • Violent, hateful or racist language
  • Advocacy for any illegal activity
  • Personal information, including but not limited to addresses and telephone numbers
  • Web links to any site other than the IARA website
  • Advertisements or solicitations of any kind
  • Infringement on copyrights or trademarks

Comments will not be deleted and banning users is largely prohibited. Both actions violate a citizen’s first amendment rights. However, the comments will be moderated. In unique and extreme circumstances, the communications director (in consultation with the executive director) can authorize the banning or blocking of a user. These matters must be dealt with on a case-by-case basis and approved by the executive director and the public access counselor.
