Social Media & Website Guidelines

User Guidelines

While PGFPD allows for comments and postings, PGFPD imposes limits on comments and postings. All PGFPD websites and social media platforms are expressly intended to be limited public forums. PGFPD, as a public service entity, is committed to keeping all PGFPD websites and social media platforms family friendly, so please make your comments and posts consistent with that standard.  In addition to keeping it family friendly, we ask that you follow our posting guidelines here.  If you don't comply, your message will be removed. 

  • * We do not allow comments that we judge to be obscene, abusive, hateful, defamatory or which invade or violate the privacy rights of others;
  • * You should continue the theme of the blog/posting and remain “on topic”; 
  • * We do not allow promotional postings, solicitations, links or advertisements.  This includes promotion or endorsement of any financial, commercial, or nonprofit nongovernmental entity or agency.
