As a portal offers a space for the participation of all and all visitors through the registration of a single user account. Through this support allows users to contribute from different sectors of society with responsible information that would help to expand the presence and image of the celebration and culture of Colombia.
The use of this site and its services assume that the user knows and accepts these conditions and in this sense does its efforts of collaboration and cooperation in publishing and content creation.


Using a form is allowed for other users to add comments to each entry, able to generate a debate on the content, more than any other information.


One feature that differentiates the sites new weblogs are the entries often include multiple links to other sites (not necessarily weblogs) as references or for more information added.
Under the policy document attached to the application, indicate the following, in which we will make some suggestions:
First, the service is not unlimited for technical reasons, which means that we believe that citizens should Know when the system does not support the reason invoked opinions, so that there is a sense of subjective reason, censorship or discrimination, but an objective reason.
Second, the possibility of non-sexually explicit spaces or any reference to pornography, does not support the routing or publication of content by referring to abusive sexual practices, pedophilia, incest, bestiality, Necrophilia and in general all those falling into this category should be considered with caution.
Indeed, it is important to note that economic exploitation is divisible, routing for pornographic sites or the sexual exploitation of children, presenting images or pornographic content on the blog, or expressing an opinion On one of these subjects, preference or sexual orientation.
Article 13 of the Constitution establishes the right to equality and non-discrimination on grounds of sex, race, national or family origin, language, religion, political or philosophical.
Furthermore, Article 16 of the Charter recognizes the right of everyone to the free development of personality, with no restrictions other than those imposed by the rights of others and the legal system.
So it could not be thought of the censorship of sexual issues or debates, characteristic of a democratic community, or that society interacts with management on these issues.
That is, could very well open a debate about incestuous practices on necrophilia, zoophilia, or even on abusive sexual practices and pedophilia, as a citizen is thinking about these issues and other promotion or financial gain.
Thus, when object space is the profitable use of these aspects and not the legitimate, technical and respectful expression of any of the themes expressed above should be censored as if it is a hateful or Violence, in this case applied to an orientation or sexual preference.
On the other hand, when the object of opinion is to try to develop a sexual orientation or preference, space could not be censored, the prohibition of Article 13 of the Constitution.
Therefore, according to the above considerations must be understood from the point 5 of the policy that states:
Comments and / or items that are authorized and which contain information about human sexuality can not join or post to other sites To obtain a financial gain from this publication. In addition, given the sensitivity of the topic, comments and / or articles that touch these types of questions must have been explicitly allowed to do information development based on the confirmed authority of their authors.
Third, and in addition to the above, it is reinforced by the 7 th and 8 th in the policy that is prohibited any publication inciting hatred towards groups based on race or ethnicity, national origin, religion , Disability, gender, age, veteran, sexual orientation or identity, as well as zero tolerance for pornography or exploitation of children. The same considerations apply to the prohibition of direct threats of violence against any person or group.

The constitutional basis for this is the promotion of peaceful coexistence, a just social order and the dignity of man enshrined in articles 1 and 2 of the Constitution.
Moreover, the respect which should govern relations between individuals, recalling that defamation and slander as criminal offenses, it should be made clear that the State is not bound to deal with disrespectful applications (Article 23 of the Convention). Constitution in accordance with Article 5 of the CEC), whereas these spaces or opinions which do not respect the above must be refused or canceled.
This is also consistent with paragraphs 9 th and 13 th of the policy document, which prohibit the promotion of criminal activities or groups outlawed
Now it is clear that it must be recognized as the author who published a text space , However, the personal data of authors and citizens to participate in comments and / or articles must be protected.
Indeed, Article 15 of the Constitution provides that “all persons have the right to personal and family intimacy and to your reputation, and the State must respect and enforce them. Similarly, the right to know, update, and rectify information gathered about them in databases and files of public and private entities.
In data collection, processing and circulation and other respected freedom guarantees enshrined in the Constitution … ”
On this particular paragraph 12 of the document 11 and require the prohibition of private or confidential information like your number credit card, credit cards, identification, and identity theft does not allow other through the comments and / or articles.
therefore, the identification must be clearly regulated that would have the Author of the text and opinion, and ask permission to publish such relevant information certain to the blog, such as your name or email, according to protect personal information, stakeholders when necessary for publication or an opinion space.
for example, to publish a species, but it seems that the whole community has submitted the name of its author, but is required by the coordinates of the portal administrator Others, surely protect them, unless expressly provided, the plaintiff authorizes his disclosure.
Therefore, although it is necessary to protect the authors of the article or the opinion must also protect the person who writes or present an idea, provided measures to prevent access to the personal information of the person Or his usurpation of identity.
