About This Nation

One Line Bio

A Staff-moderated, CoH-compliant Nation that can discuss all categories of News.

About, Bylaws, Other Information

The Spirit And The Purpose is a Gated Nation, but all first-time applicants will be approved quickly. The only admins are Newsvine moderators: Dave, Sally, and Tyler. These moderators pledge to review discussions within the nation and will remove Code of Honor violations. If you want to have a discussion in guaranteed full view of the moderation staff, this is the place. Repeat or egregious violators will be blocked in public with an explanation (and likely suspended!).

Newly arriving Newsviners will be invited to join this Nation as their first Nation from The Greenhouse.

There is no category specification for discussions in The Spirit And The Purpose – all news types, from Health to Odd News, can be discussed in this Nation.

The name refers to this passage in #5 of the Code of Honor: "Acts that run contrary to the spirit and purpose of Newsvine, including attempts to circumvent the Code of Honor & User Agreement, are not allowed."
