A core ElectVideos principle (“Enjoy ,without Mar”) requires that people treat other people on the site with civility, respect, and consideration. Assume that others on the site are also trying to make it a great resource. Respect opposing or differing opinions, beliefs and conclusions. Try to listen to and understand others you may disagree with. Encourage others on the site to also be welcoming and respectful.
Comment threads & how to disagree in comments
In general, comment threads on ElectVideos are interactions among strangers. Given that another person on the site may be new to ElectVideos and/or doesn’t know you, we require a higher level of politeness than other interactive platforms where users know one another and/or where more adversarial social norms are established and tolerated. A key goal of the Enjoy, without Mar policy is ensure that comments do not discourage or intimidate other people on ElectVideos.
Harassment is defined as offensive behavior that appears to a reasonable observer to have the purpose of adversely affecting a targeted person or persons. The intended outcome may be to make using ElectVideos unpleasant for the target, to undermine them, or to discourage them from editing and using the site. Examples of harassment include (but are not limited to): (1) making threats, (2) repeated annoying and unwanted contacts, (3) posting the personal information of another person, (4) using sexually explicit, profane, adversarial, or flirtatious language toward another person if such language would likely make the person uncomfortable.
The Enjoy, without Mar policy applies to Messages on ElectVideos.
- Content that violates this policy may be reported to and removed by admins,
- Depending on the severity of the Enjoy, without Mar violation, a user may be banned immediately (i.e., without waiting for content warnings or edit-blocks). People who appear to be using ElectVideos for the primary purpose of harassing others may be banned without warning.
Block first before reporting violations
If you feel that another person is violating this policy with respect to you or your content, you should block them in addition to reporting them to moderation.
