Gone But Not Forgotten

Hello, you've landed on DATA eh? - Open Data Toronto's original blog space for data discussions. This is not an active blog at the moment but legacy posts are still here. Have a read ... you can still provide comments.

Monday, September 14, 2009


Let's get some of the fine print business out of the way...

You need to know:
The blog is moderated and comments are read before being posted. Moderation times are generally Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. but you can make comments at any time. They may not appear until the next business day or after the weekend. That doesn't mean that postings won't happen on the weekends or in the evenings, it just means we don't want to set up a 24/7 immediate expectation around it.

Information when collected is collected under section 27 of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act as a record available to the public. We may remove material that does not meet the terms and conditions posted on this site.

What's going to get posted:
We are ready and willing to post anything related to our content and discussion points as set out in our posts subject to the exceptions noted in "What's not going to get posted". Please note, we don't care if you criticize, whine or generally complain about data or the toronto.ca website but let's be mannerly in how we go about talking to each other.

What's not going to get posted:
Here is a list of what will prevent us from posting your comments:
information deemed by us to be someone's "private or personal" information, profanity, abusive language, abusive comments, threats, off topic comments, racist comments, sexist comments, comments requesting services or comments about service delivery complaints (unless they relate specifically to a post) and anything even remotely resembling spam. No malicious links, advertising or advertising of services and forget about pornography.

Your privacy is important to the City of Toronto. Really important! By default, Blogger allows users to comment under existing blog accounts. The City of Toronto is not asking for your personal information as a criteria to comment. Should you comment other than anonymous, please be aware that your agreements with Google or others allow users to view profile information you may have authorized in your own account. If you choose to remain private, be so kind as to give yourself a screen-name at the end of your post.

Please don't include phone numbers or house addresses etc. in your comments. We will delete such references (including references to others you might include) before posting. This will mean copying your text into a separate submission box and approving this version of your comment.
