We ask all users to engage in conversation/forum in a respectful manner, so that everyone can enjoy sharing their views on the platform.
We endeavour to answer your questions as soon as possible and reply comments where applicable. However, situations like communicating with our overseas partners may take us longer time to respond to you.

-    Irrelevant to the objective of our page

-    Considered harassment or threat to any individual or organization
-    Successively off-topic or repeated comments by a single supporter
-    Repetitive solicitations or advertisements
