Relevance All posts should be relevant to the forum or thread on which they appear. It can be difficult to follow a topic and engage in meaningful discussion if there are many irrelevant posts. This includes crossposting (making repeat posts across different threads).
Private and Confidential Information Do not publish anyone’s personally identifiable information; personal health information, including medical information; financial conditions; or any other sensitive or confidential information that identifies you or any other person or entity. ASSUME THAT ANY INFORMATION POSTED IN THE FORUMS IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE.
Trolling, Abuse and Threats Do not troll, threaten, harass, defame, disparage, menace, stalk, or abuse any user, individual, or entity, or encourage anyone else to do so. This includes repeat unwelcome comments about another user’s physical appearance or repeat invitation or request for offline meeting.
Hate Speech Do not use language that is racist, sexist, or degrading to any religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or nationality, or is otherwise offensive. Even in situations where we, as Christians, know certain behaviors to be sinful, we must act in a way that is in alignment with the teachings of Jesus Christ: that is to love the sinner and show grace in every thought, word and deed.
Illegal Activities Do not engage in, or advocate engaging in, any fraudulent, violent, or other illegal conduct. This includes posting links to any offsite content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity, or features illegal activity including pirarcy of intellectual property, violence, drug use, and other inappropriate content.
Impersonation Do not impersonate any person or entity, including the staff of Blessings Through Action. Moreover, users may not state or imply that any product, service, individual, or entity is sponsored or endorsed by Blessings Through Action. Impersonation is a form of bearing false witness and will result in account termination. This includes using multiple accounts to “sock puppet” or using throwaway accounts to post. It also includes intentionally spreading disinformation through your posts.
Spam and Advertising Do not repeatedly post commercial information without actively engaging in the community. Do not post any information related to multi-level marketing, network marketing, or other similar businesses. Do not post any message or content for which you have been compensated to do so. Any post made by bots or other automated systems will immediately result in account termination. Any posts of commercial activity that our Trust and Safety Team deems fall outside of acceptable use will be removed.
Obscenity Do not submit obscene, pornographic, sexually suggestive, or otherwise offensive content. Do not post text, language or words that are offensive, including vulgar terms and especially those that take our Lord’s name in vain or are in any other way disrespectful of the Christian faith. As a general rule, Our Place is intended to be safe for a PG-13 audience. However, we reserve the right to remove any post that our Trust and Safety Team feels is counter to the spirit and community principles of Our Action Place.
When you create an account with us, you guarantee that you are above the age of 18, and that the information you provide us is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Inaccurate, incomplete, or obsolete information may result in the immediate termination of your account on the Service.
