WayOfChrist.faith Community Guidelines

Last Updated September 16, 2021

Our community guidelines are meant to explain what is and isn’t allowed on the site, and ensure that everyone has a good experience. If you come across a message that appears to break these rules, please report it to us. We may take a number of steps, including issuing a warning, removing the content, or removing the users responsible. These guidelines may seem obvious. Still, we want to be clear about the expectations for our users.

 

Rules for interacting with others:

  1. Do not organize, participate in, or encourage harassment of others. Disagreements happen and are normal, but continuous, repetitive, or severe negative comments may cross the line into harassment and are not okay.
  2. Do not organize, promote, or coordinate groups around hate. It’s unacceptable to attack a person based on attributes such as their race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, or disabilities.
  3. Do not make threats of violence or threaten to harm others. This includes indirect threats, as well as sharing or threatening to share someone’s private personal information (also known as doxxing).
  4. Do not evade user blocks. Do not send unwanted, repeated friend requests or messages, especially after they’ve made it clear they don’t want to talk to you anymore.
