While no censorship based on opinion, views, etc. takes place on AnonNews, there are several guidelines in place to keep content on the site relevant. Read these guidelines completely before submitting a press release. Not reading them may get you banned.
This is not a forum. Opinion posts, questions to anons, and other similar things do not belong here. Use the forum.
AnonNews is about Anonymous. While you may think your local political party, a phone tapping scandal, or anything else is important, this is not the place for personal army requests. If you wish to discuss a topic that may be of interest to other anons, you can do so on the forum. If it's not a press release or manifesto from Anonymous, it doesn't belong here - period.
Format your press releases properly. Press releases and manifestos are expected to be readable and in proper formatting. While we certainly don't expect perfect grammar, a press release that uses an abbreviation every other word or contains excessive 'leetspeak' is not going to be accepted. If your press release is in bright pink with images of red flowers on the side, it will probably not be accepted either.
No copypasting. This section is intended for those that wish to submit a press release about an operation they are involved with (not necessarily being part of staff). Don't copypaste news articles or press releases from others that you have nothing to do with. Submitting it for someone else who is involved with an operation, is of course not an issue at all.
You are not the leader of Anonymous. Noone is. Don't try to imply that all of Anonymous agrees with something or condemns it - your press release will be rejected. Unless you have talked through your press release with literally every single anon out there, you cannot speak for all of them. Making a generic 'from Anonymous' statement is fine, as long as you don't try to say that 'person X and operation Y were not Anonymous' or try to impose alleged 'universal values or ideologies' onto Anonymous - they simply do not exist.
On the IP retention policy: we normally do not store IP addresses of anyone submitting content to AnonNews (feel free to use TOR or a proxy to be completely sure). If you hit a spam filter, however (there is almost zero chance for a false positive), your IP may be recorded and banned. If an IP is incorrectly recorded (a false positive) it will be reviewed and removed from the log within 24 hours, without exception.
