  • You should respectfully challenge ideas, but never directly attack a person. Any posts, comments, chats, or DMs to members or admins that are inappropriate, rude, or aggressive will be immediately removed. This includes posts that spread misinformation & are disruptive to the group.
  • This community thrives on the participation of its members. Contribute positively, ask questions, share your experiences, and help build a supportive and informative space for everyone. You can help by keeping your discussions and posts related to the community's focus. 
  • Do not use the community to promote products, services, or other websites unless relevant to the discussion and disclosed transparently. 
  • Respect the privacy of others and do not share personal information without consent. Do not engage in any activities that compromise the safety or security of community members or that could be considered illegal.
  • Respect intellectual property rights, including proper citation and sourcing when sharing content. Do not post copyrighted material without proper attribution or permissions.

Reporting Violations: If you encounter a post or comment that violates these guidelines, please report it to the community site administrators for review.
