At Post, we are building a community for safe, authentic, and editorialized information – built by real people for real people. We all need to accept some basic rules to keep it that way. The following rules and guidelines (“Content Rules”) explain what is and isn't allowed on our Services.
You may not attack people
Harassment & Bullying. We prohibit bullying or harassment of any kind and will not tolerate any expressions of abuse, such as threats or degrading statements intended to humiliate, intimidate, or hurt others.
Violence & Harm. Encouraging violence or dangerous behavior is prohibited. We will not allow Users to use the Services for sharing Content that includes threats of violence or incitement to violence that may result in serious physical harm.
