Okay, this one is more about us than you. Guns Across America staff review flagged post 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate our Community Guidelines. When they do, we remove them. Sometimes a post doesn't violate our Community Guidelines, but may not be appropriate for everyone. These post may be age-restricted. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination. If your account is terminated, you won't be allowed to create any new accounts.
Remember that this is your community! Each and every user of Guns Across America makes the site what it is, so don't be afraid to dig in and get involved!
Want a little more insight into the limits and exceptions in the Community Guidelines? Here are some helpful examples and tips (click on a tip to view its details):
"Hate speech" refers to content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. For instance, racist or sexist content may be considered hate speech. Sometimes there is a fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation, but not okay to make insulting generalizations about people of a particular nationality.
We draw the line at content that's intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous, illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death. This means not posting instructions on things like instructional bomb making, ninja assassin training, sniper attacks, videos that train terrorists, or tips on illegal drugs.
Post involving children (anyone under the age of 18) are particularly sensitive. Post containing children should never be sexually suggestive or violent. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child.
Don't post other people's personal information, including phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, and government IDs. We're serious about keeping our users safe and suspend accounts that violate people's privacy.
It comes down to respect. Guns Across America is all about sharing and interacting with the community in respectful ways. If you're not sure whether a post you've made crosses the line, follow a simple rule of thumb: if you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't say it on Guns Across America. And if you're looking to attack, harass, demean, or impersonate others, go elsewhere.
Impersonating another users, using a similar username, or posing as that person in reviews, emails or post is considered harassment. If you want to keep your account, stay away from participating in any form of impersonation or harassing activity on the site.
Users shouldn't feel threatened when they're on Guns Across America. Period. Don't leave threatening responses on other people's post.
