1 SocFreeSpeech is committed to freedom of expression about social issues. In general, any subreddit or content relating in some constructive way to social issues as described in our mission statement is welcome here. Political (either partisan or other political causes) litmus tests for allowed communities are incompatible with freedom of speech, so you won't find any here enforced by site administrators. Special interest groups across the whole social issues spectrum are welcome to create their own communities, and each community is free to set and enforce its own standards in its own subreddit.
2 Rules and content policies are determined by the moderators on a subreddit-by-subreddit basis and do not reflect the views or objectives of this website or its administrators. How can they when, after all, there are so many mutually contradictory points of view? There are only a few things that are expressly forbidden site-wide:
- No doxing nor any content that in any way infringes upon the privacy of private individuals. Though our parent organisation is based in the US, the stricter standards of EU privacy law are probably a good guideline about what is and is not okay.
- No violence, advocacy nor incitement to violence.
- No porn.
- No spam.
- No piracy or other intellectual property theft (whether software, music or movies etc), though we regard the US principles of Fair Use in high esteem, particularly where content relates to criticism and commentary.
- Nothing that is illegal in the United States (and the State of Nevada in particular).
3 There is not specifically a 'no harassment' restriction because what constitutes harassment is highly subjective. In general, however, constructive criticism is okay but activities clearly carried out in bad faith are not. We aim to be as liberal as possible in this respect, but we reserve the right to intervene in particularly egregious cases, to ban subreddits that don't meaningfully contribute to social issues in some way, to enforce these rules and the User Agreement.
