Community Guidelines

“Be Respectful To Others” is a core principle that requires people to treat other people in the community with civility, respect and consideration – both online and offline. Respect opposing or differing opinions and beliefs. Try to listen to and understand others with whom you may disagree. Encourage others in the community to also be welcoming and respectful.

Following these simple guidelines will help make this community a better place for us all:

Respect Others: is a meeting place for people of different cultures, lifestyles and ideals. By joining our community, you promise to communicate with respect and consideration, even if you encounter someone you disagree with.

Don’t Attack Members or Their Content: Personal attacks are not allowed on, nor are disrespectful or insulting attacks directed at other people and their contributions to the community. Use

Good Judgment and Be Empathetic: When interacting with others on, try to see the world from their perspective. People contribute to the community in their own way. Disputes between members can occur when differing cultural norms create a misunderstanding, as many things are acceptable in some cultures and unacceptable in others.

Member Interactions: It is okay to disagree. In fact, alternative points of view are a key part of cultural exchange as long as your comments are civil, respectful and polite. Remember to give the impression of assuming goodwill on the part of the person with whom you are disagreeing.

Retaliation Is Not Okay: It is never okay to violate polices even in response to another person who has done so.

Safety Is a Cornerstone of the Community: Member safety is very important to and the health of the community. Please review our Safty Basics and Personal Safty Tips pages for more information.
