8. COMMUNITY USAGE GUIDELINES
Do not post inappropriate links or images
micromobs is a safe place to communicate with the groups you care about most. No inappropriate links or images should be posted in any public or private mobs. It will be an overall detriment to the community because people will leave mobs if inappropriate or sexually suggestive links or images are shared.
Do not create mobs or make posts that are slanderous to other people
It's not nice to say bad things about other people--especially online! Mobs or posts that slander other people will not be tolerated and will be removed immediately. Please report if you see anything of this nature on micromobs.
Protect your privacy
Don't post your personal information like phone numbers, email addresses, or home addresses, or the personal information of anyone else on micromobs. No one likes to be contacted unsolicited, so help protect the privacy of yourself as well as other mobbers.
Spam is no fun and it ruins the experience on micromobs. Dont post pictures, links or text repeatedly to promote anything.
The micromobs team will review all reports and take appropriate measures. Either a post or mob will be removed, a mob will be made private, a warning will be sent, or accounts will be terminated.
