Typically, our policy regarding WSA elections is to accept all campaign statements that we’re sent and publish them all in one giant WSA campaign post during election week.
We haven’t been regulating that policy much this time around, and earlier today an open letter from a student was published by a Wesleying contributor on behalf of one of the WSA election candidates. It was way more negative in tone than what we’ve had on this site in the past, and we decided as a group that it was a misuse of this space to keep it up.
We’re all about keeping Wesleying an open, inclusive forum, but there’s a limit to what’s acceptable. If you or someone speaking for you want to call your opponent “loud and obnoxious” or “terrible”, and actually say “DO NOT VOTE FOR THAT OTHER GUY”, you can get it published as a Wespeak, post it on the ACB, or tell anyone who will listen, but we will not be down with that. Also it’s probably more embarrassing for you than it is for us.
All WSA candidates, feel free to email us a blurb, the position you’re running for, and whatever clever posters/videos/graphics you’ve managed to get made. Keep it civil, and it’ll be posted in the same way all the others are.
