Community Standards

 Introduction 

We’re inspired by each and every one of our community members. We value their perspectives, beliefs, and views. In order to maintain a respectful, inclusive, and safe environment for everyone, we’ve created a set of community standards to serve as a moral compass for behavior on our platform. These standards help define what is acceptable in the SW Rolodex community and marketplace, and explain how violations are enforced. They aren’t tied to any law, but are used to govern our platform policies.

They reflect our attitudes, expectations, and social norms. Our community standards are rooted in core values — respect, safety, acceptance, support, and open-mindedness. We encourage our community to use our reporting tools when encountering anything that is unacceptable. We want to create the best experience for all community members, and ask that you respect and follow these guidelines.

Threats 

While we know that people sometimes express frustration or disagreement by threatening or calling for violence in non-serious ways, we can’t risk the safety of our community or the general public by ignoring threats of physical harm.
