Site rules

Cloned from icosa mostly

In order for this website to be able to function, there are some rules that you will have to follow while using it.

Be friendly.

  • The internet is a network that connects people using computers. The other endpoint is a human being with an inner life just as complex as your own. Act accordingly.
  • Consider the reach of the posts you make. Tag content that you expect others might not want to see.
  • Harassment and bullying of any kind are not tolerated here. Do not engage with a user if they do not want you to. Do not ask other users to, either.

Don’t start shit.

  • Do not make posts just to get angry reactions.
  • “I was being ironic” is an extremely flimsy excuse for behaving badly.
  • Do not drag unrelated people into a discussion.

Obey the law.

  • Specifically, US Law.
  • No illegal file sharing, no illegal pornography, no publication of personal protected information, no holocaust denial, you know the drill.

Spam is not allowed.

  • Bots that interact with a user without a users explicit request are not allowed.
  • Automated or excessive advertising is not allowed.

Be aware of the nature of the network.

  • This website is part of a network of similar websites. Other websites may have different rules.
  • The local administration has little control over users of other websites. You can, however, block and mute them - same as local users.
  • In egregious cases, remote users or entire groups of users may be blocked from interacting with users of this website.

Fascism is incompatible with a free exchange of ideas.

  • When you endorse racism, exclusion and the structural and physical violence that come with it, you show yourself to not be interested in any sort of dialogue.
  • Those who work towards a society based on chauvinism and nationalism rather than peaceful coexistance are not welcome here.

Admin decisions are final.

  • The interpretation of these rules is up to the administration and an admins decision overrides the rules.
  • “Technically I did not violate any rule” is an extremely flimsy excuse for behaving badly.
  • The rules may be changed or amended when necessary.

These goal of these rules is to ensure a safe and welcoming environment.

  • Rule enforcement is guided by this goal.
  • Any enforcement action will generally be kept between those involved.
  • Try to self-moderate, but do not hesitate to involve an admin when necessary.
  • You can report rule violations via the report function, or via mentioning @OffTheHook.
