Community Guidelines

Bright Hub is a diverse community of intelligent and engaged members who discuss their ideas and opinions about many subjects. We expect there to be differences of opinion, heated debate, and maybe even a hurt feeling or two. But we also expect a certain civility and maturity that will only help to strengthen our collective voice.

The following membership pledge provides the foundation for how Bright Hub members sustain and foster this spirit of community.
