We encourage our users to share their ideas and participate in discussions. In the spirit of maintaining a positive, safe and trustworthy environment for everyone, we ask you to abide by our Code of Conduct and adhere to the following rules when posting content and interacting with the Site or other users.

User Expectations and Unwelcome Content

Above all, we expect our users to be kind, helpful and respectful. We will not permit, and will remove, without warning, the following:

  1. Adult content: Content that displays, advocates for, or coordinates sexual acts with others.
  2. Child safety: We do not allow content that sexually exploits or endangers children. We will terminate the accounts of any user we find breaking these rules and may report them to law enforcement. We know that sometimes people share nude images of their own children with good intentions (e.g. baby photos); however, we generally remove these images because of the potential for abuse by others and to help avoid the possibility of other people misappropriating the images on other sites.
  3. Crude content: Don’t post content that is shocking or graphic. (For example, images of accident scenes.)
  4. Hate speech: We do not allow content that promotes hate or violence towards specific groups, which may include race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
  5. Bullying and harassment: We want users to express opinions, even difficult ones, but don’t cross the line by harassing or bullying others. Online harassment is also illegal in many regions and may have serious offline consequences.
  6. Violence: We want our users to feel safe and respected while on the Site. Making threats of harm or death to other users will not be tolerated, and severe offenses may be reported to law enforcement.
  7. Personal and confidential information: It’s not okay to publish another person’s personal and confidential information on the Site. This includes home or business addresses, telephone numbers, credit card information, bank information, or email addresses.
  8. Impersonating others: Don’t mislead or confuse users by pretending to be someone else or representing a group or organization you don’t.
  9. Spam: We may delete posts that are intended to promote your site or product, especially if they are irrelevant to the discussion.
  10. Solicitation of goods and services: We discourage posts and links about goods and services if they are not relevant to the discussion. The posting of links that are related to a discussion will be considered on a case-by-case basis. (For example, a user is seeking recommendations about cremains jewelry and you post an Etsy link.) Examples of posts that may be removed:
    • Links to fundraising pages (e.g. GoFundMe)
    • Requesting participation in surveys and studies
    • Referral links to purchase services
