Hateful Content

While we encourage free speech and wish to keep everyone's right to express any points of view, regardless of how unpopular they are, we don't allow hate speech. Remember, not everything that is mean or insulting is considered hate speech. This term only applies to speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status and sexual orientation/gender identity.
