We would just like to take this time to explain a few of our guidelines about participating in the forums.
Figment is a site for everyone to participate in, no matter his or her beliefs. We encourage you to express yourselves not only through your writing, but through discussion as well. We love the way Figmenters gather in the forums to discuss ideas, the events of the day, or just about anything random. It’s even okay to discuss difficult topics and respectfully disagree with one another, and the vast majority of you do this wonderfully.
We do have certain guidelines that we expect Figment members to follow and we think they’re pretty straightforward. The guidelines state that you must treat all members of the community with respect, even if you disagree with their beliefs. When responding to a comment on the forums that you don’t agree with, discuss it without trashing or attacking the person. Phrase your response in a constructive and respectful way. Derogatory, mean, and inflammatory language or comments aimed at a specific user, or a group of people, will be deleted. If we have to delete a lot of your comments and keep sending you warnings, but you keep attacking other Figmenters, it’s possible that your account will be deleted. We never delete posts, threads or users frivolously. We carefully examine all the threads and comments involved, and make a decision based on what we see. We never delete things based on a user’s beliefs — we delete them based on their behavior towards other Figmenters.
Should you see something that is offensive, nasty or questionable, or feel that something is just not right, please contact a moderator. You can always reach a moderator at Info@Figment.com.
