Wikinews operates a clearly delineated Acceptable Abuse Policy. The terms of this are laid out below. Wikinewsies in good-standing are requested to add appropriate clauses as they see fit.

If you are the butt of one of these jokes, pick yourself up off the floor, watch a couple of episodes of Drop the Dead Donkey, and buy a teddy bear.


As if this policy would have a purpose?
