Treat your internet friends with respect

Look, we get it. Life is hard. Sometimes, it can be very tempting to take it out on the wrong person who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But that doesn’t mean you should, nor is it the right thing to do.

You can respectfully challenge/disagree with someone, but you can’t target someone for something they can’t change. And that means their race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious belief, and more.

We understand that imposing a zero tolerance policy probably won’t prevent hate, but we take this issue very seriously. Any person or entity whose intent is to elicit hate or violence in our platform will face serious consequences.
