We reserve the right to monitor the Services, and your use of the Services means you agree to such monitoring. At the same time, we do not guarantee we will monitor at all.

The Services provide a platform for communities to interact with other web users and websites to discuss topics on and of the internet. The nature of this content will vary so, while participating, it’s important to try to be as respectful, kind and free thinking as possible so the Services can be a place that people can continue to use it as a place for open thought.
While we generally provide a lot of leeway in what content is acceptable, here are some guidelines for content that is not. Please keep in mind the spirit in which these were written, and know that looking for loopholes is a waste of time.
Content is prohibited if it:
Is involuntary pornography.
Encourages or incites violence.
Threatens, harasses, or bullies or encourages others to do so.
Is personal and confidential information.
Impersonates someone in a misleading or deceptive manner.
In addition to not submitting unwelcome content, the following behaviors are prohibited on the Services:
Asking for votes or engaging in vote manipulation.
Breaking the Services or doing anything that interferes with normal use of the Services.
Creating multiple accounts to evade punishment or avoid restrictions.
We have a variety of ways of enforcing our rules, including, but not limited to:
Asking you nicely remove and refrain from that behavior in the future.
Temporary or permanent suspension of accounts.
Removal of privileges from, or adding restrictions to, accounts.
Removal of content.
We take no responsibility for, we do not expressly or implicitly endorse, and we do not assume any liability for any user content submitted by you to the Services.
You may not post any graphics, text, photographs, images, video, audio or other material that we deem to be junk or spam. Cluttering the Services with this sort of content reduces the quality of the experience for others.
Respect users that edit their content
You may not purposefully negate any user's actions to delete or edit their content on the Services. This is intended to respect the privacy of users who delete or edit their content, and is not intended to abridge the fair use or the expressive rights shared by us all.
Changes to this content policy
We may modify this Policy at any time. If we make changes to this Policy that materially affect your rights, we will provide notice and keep this edition available as an archive on the website. By continuing to use the Services after a change to this agreement, you agree to those changes.
