Important note: SPACInsider encourages civil, thought-provoking debate and idea-sharing among investors and SPAC-market followers. In order to maintain a level of discourse appropriate for our readership, we are strongly opposed to trolling, uncivilized discussion, mudslinging, inappropriate language, and blanket dismissal of others’ ideas. At our discretion, we may delete comments and articles, and block/delete accounts of users we believe lower the level of discourse and courtesy we strive to engender.
The SPACInsider site is intended to serve as a discussion center for thoughtful users who make their own investment decisions, with or without the help of a broker. All contributors are required to disclose any positions they have in stocks being discussed.
These standards are designed to ensure that the dialogue on the Site is credible, responsible, intelligent and informative. We cannot guarantee that users will tell the truth. However, by setting out the above guidelines, we hope to raise the credibility of the discussion and foster a spirit of open, honest exchanges of information.
If an author has a business relationship with a company named in an article that he or she has authored, that relationship must be fully and accurately disclosed.
If you have any comments on our policies, or complaints or concerns of any kind about any posts, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review all of the information that you communicate to us, but we may not be able to take action or respond directly to each email.
