Comment policy

The AVFC VILLA BLOG comment policy. Firstly AVFC VILLA BLOG is an Aston Villa Football Club focused Fansite. Comments and discussions should focus around Aston Villa Football Club and Football in general.

However, It’s entirely conceivable that sometimes discussions will drift away onto other subjects, that have no connection to Football.

In small volume, these types of discussions will be allowed. But when any subject/discussion other than football becomes the main focus of discussion. Then AVFC Villa blog, admin or moderators, reserve the right too at its discretion to delete such comments.
