Abuse Policy ¶
Help us build and maintain a safe community.
At Yarn.Social, we believe that everyone is free to express and share their
opinions, stories, ideas and thoughts! You're even free to create your own pod, with your own followers. Your posts are your own, your data is your own, your
community can be made by you, however, Yarn.social pod owners and operators have a responsibility to provide a safe community.
The primary focus of the community guidelines will be
@-mentions and Conversations posted to any pods managed either by the Yarn.social team or
pods purchased through the Yarn.social hosting service. Pods created and hosted
independently are not held to these community guidelines and are beyond both the scope of this policy, and Yarn.social's writ large.
Many great friendships and conversations happen on Yarn.social. Unfortunately,
from time to time, users may engage in what is deemed abusive or harassing
If you are being harassed on a Yarn.social pod, or if you notice someone else
being harassed, please report the user by going to their profile page and
selecting Report User. You will be asked for an example(s), in the form of links to offending posts, by either their URL(s) or their Twt Hashes. Alternatively, you can contact the pod owner through the /support page.
The following will not be tolerated as
@-mentions to any user or in any conversations (including multimedia content) on any Yarn.social pod:
- Hate speech:
Content that attacks other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national
origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation,
age, disability, or disease. We will not host Twts or Twt Blogs whose primary
purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
- Threats of violence:
You may not threaten violence towards others or use the platform to organize,
promote, or incite acts of real-world violence or terrorism.
Repeatedly targeting other people with unwanted @-reply messages.
- Posting private information (aka doxxing):
You may not publish or post other people’s private and confidential
information, such as credit card numbers, street address, or Social
Security/National Identity numbers, without their express authorization and
permission. In addition, you may not post intimate photos or videos that were
taken or distributed without the subject’s consent.
- Illegal activities:
You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of
illegal activities. International users agree to comply with all local laws
regarding online conduct and acceptable content.
What happens if someone violates these guidelines ¶
We recognize that the circumstances under which a violation has occurred will
vary, and we will tailor our response to the situation that has been reported.
We’ll review each abuse report on a case-by-case basis. In each case, the actions we may take can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- A warning to discontinue the behaviour that violates the guidelines,
with specific details on how the guidelines have been violated. Repeated
warnings will lead to the removal of the offending user's account and any feeds they own.
- Closure of the associated Yarn.social account.
Thanks for helping us build and maintain a safe and welcoming community
on Yarn.social and beyond!
We reserve the right to update these guidelines as needed.
