Be Safe, Be Respectful, Participate in Our Community
Our community guidelines exist to shape and guide us and our participants and patrons of our services and platforms. This is not about building an arbitrary framework of “right vs. wrong.” It’s about making TBL a place where diverse people can come together and share, while still allowing for different, and sometimes conflicting points of view. That said, respect others, and their view point. We encourage member interaction to create a healthy dialog.
It’s also important to note that some of our content, and content created by others may be sensitive in nature. This includes violence, nudity and other adult situations. This being said, we will not tolerate blatantly obvious pornographic content, offensive and graphic content depicting violence, assaults, murder, illicit and illegal behavior. We have an absolute zero tolerance policy when it comes to sexual violence, which includes bestiality, rape, and child exploitation.
Bullying, Harassment, Threats, Hate Speech, Illicit or Illegal Activity
Summary: We don't allow any bullying or harassment at all. We want our services and platforms to be a safe place for all. At the same time, we want people to be able to express themselves, be critical and discuss controversial issues. We do not allow illicit, or illegal activity on our plaforms.
We recognize that discussing celebrities, media, events, news or other public figures can sometimes involve harsh criticism, and we believe that is an appropriate part of free debate. However, we draw the line when it comes to harassing private figures, or taking any action that might affect people’s physical safety, regardless of whether these people are private or public figures.
As much as we want you to be able to express yourself, we want all of our users to have the right to express their opinion without feeling intimidated. Even the most difficult conversations should take place in the most respectful way. Here is how we define these behaviors.
You cannot attempt to intimidate anyone, either directly or by using your influence over others. We treat real-life interactions more seriously than online interactions when analyzing whether a line has been crossed because it can be more threatening and lead to physical violence. When both sides engage in similar behavior, such as feuds between public figures, we are less likely to take action, but it doesn’t preclude inaction.
Anyone on our platforms should be able to express their opinion in a way that doesn’t threaten another person. In this fashion, we take threats of violence very seriously. Any member threatening the well-being of an individual or group of people will be removed. This includes threatening behavior such as stalking or inciting others to commit violent acts.
Regarding doxing, we have a strong stance against it. Doxing means sharing an individuals private information or aggregating public information for the purpose of intimidating them through harassment.
We connect people from all over the world. We are a global platform built on promoting a community of like-minded individuals with a desire to grow and learn together. We have no room, nor any tolerance for members, and their content, that promotes hate speech, such as calling for violence, exclusion or segregation. This includes serious attacks on people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or medical conditions. This is not an exhaustive list, but we do want to be transparent about how we view these things. We understand there is a grey area between speech and action. There can be a fine line between political comments and hate speech. If you come across what you believe to be hate speech on our platforms, please take the time to report it.
If you are a victim of this behavior, and feel that your personal safety is at risk, we suggest you contact your local law enforcement immediately, in addition to reporting the behavior to us so that we may work to resolve the issue and help keep you and everyone involved safe.
We have a zero tolerance policy for behaviors that exploit minors such as grooming. Our platform requires that all members be at least 18 years of age to participate, however, we will not tolerate member created or shared content that depicts child or minor exploitation. We will report all users engaging in such activity to legal authorities.
TBL will not perpetuate or propagate misinformation, be that provided by members, or third parties. Obvious satire information should be marked as such by the creator.
