All content of this website is copyright NBR and cannot be reproduced, in any form, without permission.

Subscribers and others are encouraged to post a headline and a link to an NBR article. If you are sharing an article with a group that includes people without paywall access, we encourage you to let them know that they can register for a premium account to read the article.

Refund policy
NBR does not provide refunds on cancelled print or online subscriptions. Exceptions can be granted at the discretion of the publisher.

NBR Comments Policy
Welcome to NBR.  We’re one of the few news websites to continue to allow comments when many of our competitors have simply decided to disable them altogether.

We want to encourage lively, intelligent debate on issues that matter to New Zealand and we feel commenting provides a great avenue for subscribers and writers to interact with each other and spark stimulating discussions.

However, all comments are made public so the discussions on our articles need to remain respectful of others and free of trolls, spam, and abuse.  NBR has decided to make it plain what our guidelines are, given there will be differing views on what constitutes offensive or insulting comments:

  • Play the ball, not the man/woman. Respect others. Do not swear or be rude. Comments deemed abusive, sexist or racist will be deleted.
  • Don’t troll.  Comments that add no value to the discussion or are simply insulting will be deleted.
  • Don’t spam. This is not the place to sell to others.
  • Do not defame. Don’t state information as fact when it is simply your view and don’t defame people by claiming they have done things you can’t prove.

Consequences: Subscribers who don’t stick to the guidelines will find their comments deleted or edited. Serious offenders will receive a warning from the moderator and repeat offending could see them banned outright from the website. 

If you think a comment has breached these guidelines you can contact NBR moderators at editor@nbr.co.nz.

Comments posted on the website are the views of the commenter only and not endorsed by NBR.
