Question & Answer Forums Policies and Rules


StockResearchPortal.com contains question and answer forums related to education, economics, resources, and resource stocks (‘Forums’). This Question & Answer Forums Policies and Rules are incorporated into the Terms of Use (as amended October 25, 2021). All postings to our Forums must comply with these Policies and Rules.

If you intend to ask, answer, or respond to any question concerning companies, stock quotes, investments or securities, the phrase "Let the investor beware" is apt. The Forums are provided for informational purposes only, and no Forum Content is intended for trading or investing purposes. The Company shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness or availability of any Forum Content, and shall not be responsible or liable for any trading or investment decisions based on such information. By using our Forums you may be exposed to content that is false, indecent, misleading, objectionable, offensive, or simply inappropriate and that we cannot guarantee that Forum posters will tell the truth. The Company does not evaluate or guarantee the accuracy of any questions, answers or other posted information on StockResearchPortal.com.

  1. You Assume Responsibility for Content that You Post. You are legally responsible for any Content that you post on this website.
  2. No Cheerleading. Our Forums are not communication media for stock ‘cheerleaders’, hypesters, promoters or ‘touters’. You agree not to write about a company or a company’s outstanding shares, options or warrants with the intention of increasing or decreasing a company’s share, option or warrant price and sell or buy same into resulting strength or weakness.
  3. Best Practices. When posting to the Forums you agree to be descriptive, specific, and succinct in your posts; ensure that your post is relevant to the particular forum discussion posted to; and to make a good faith effort to post helpful advice. You agree to act responsibly when posting to the Forums; to ensure the content you post is in the public interest; to ensure the sources underlying your posts are both current and reliable; to ensure your posts are balanced, factual, impersonal; and that your posts take into consideration both sides of any contentious issue.
  4. Use of Real Name When Posting. You can only post to our Forums if you use your real name as shown on your passport or driver’s licence. You agree to maintain your Profile and registration data accurate and up-to-date.
  5. Use of ‘Real Picture’ When Posting. While we encourage you to add a real picture of yourself to your profile, we do not insist on this. We reserve the right to remove any picture that we, in our sole and absolute discretion, consider ‘offensive’ and add an innocuous ‘placebo picture’ to your profile instead.
  6. Disclosure of Possible Conflicts of Interest. You must disclose your specific involvement with any company about whom you either ask a Question, or give an Answer or Answer Supplement by completing our Disclosures Form found following each Question, Answer and Answer Supplement template. Your disclosures are shown on each post that you make.
  7. First Post in a Thread Must Be A Question. A forum ‘thread’ is initiated when a user poses a question that he/she wants answered by other users. All initiations of a thread must be in the form of a question. Questions are requests for information, and not information offerings or comments. Information offerings or comments made in the guise of questions are not accepted in our Forums. Each question must be stated as such and must end with a ‘question mark’ – which ‘question mark’ is automatically provided by our programming.
  8. Subsequent Posts to a Thread must be an on-topic Answer. Answers and answer supplements to questions must pertain to the question to which they are responding.
  9. No Self Rating. No user can ‘rate’ their own posts.
  10. No Repeated Ratings. Subject to Rule 9 of No Self Rating, any registered user can ‘rate’ a question, answer or answer supplement. A user is limited to one rating per post.
  11. Penalties for Negative Ratings. Any user who accumulates a balance of 20 ‘Net Negative Votes’ (total ‘positive votes’ minus total ‘negative votes’) will on the date of : a) the first occurrence lose the privilege of posting on our Forums for 30 calendar days from the time they accumulate 20 ‘Net Negative Votes’, at which time their ‘Net Vote Total will be reset to ‘0’; and b) the second occurrence lose the privilege of posting on our Forums for an additional 30 calendar days from the second time they accumulate 20 ‘Net Negative Votes’, at which time their ‘Net Vote Total’ again will be reset to ‘0’; and,
    c) the third occurrence will permanently lose the privilege of posting on our Forums.
  12. Postings Must Be Legal. You agree that you will not use the Forums to:
    1. make available any Content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable;
    2. violate any applicable laws;
    3. make available any Content that contains unsolicited advertising;
    4. make available any Content that contains any use of personal information without the consent of the person whose information is being disclosed;
    5. make available any Content that contains personal attacks,
    6. post content that contains viruses or any other computer code designed to have a detrimental effect on any of the Company's computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment;
    7. make available any Content that infringes the rights of any party including, a patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, confidential information, or other proprietary rights of any party;
    8. impersonate any person or entity, or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity;
    9. interfere with the servers or networks connected to the website or discussion boards, and;
    10. collect or store personal information about other users.
  13. Concerns and Complaints. Anyone having concerns with respect to any Forum Content may address those concerns to forums@srddi.com, setting out: the publication date and URL of the questioned Forum post; their name and phone number; and, the precise concern(s) they have with respect to the Forum post they are questioning, clearly identifying the specific post they are complaining about, quoting exactly what they are disputing, and giving specific reasons (including referencing factual sources) for their dispute(s).
