BVN Community Standards and Guidelines

  • BVN Community Standards and Guidelines

    Posted by BVNetwork on November 28, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    We seek to create an atmosphere that promotes lively discussion, inquiry, and debate. But because there’s so much toxicity in the world, one of our biggest values is to maintain respectful dialogue and civility. To that end, we will be enforcing a set of community guidelines. Our aim is to have a small set of clear rules that we consistently and impartially enforce.

    What’s Not Allowed

    Low Value Posts or Comments: Posts or comments that have little to no content, lack substance, or detract from the overall experience and culture of the site.

    Incomplete Profiles: Profiles are meant to allow a level of anonymity but we do want them to be complete. Make sure that you have a profile picture and have filled out your display name. You will be given one grace period to add this information before your profile is removed.

    Abusive Usernames: Usernames, screen names, bios, or avatars that are abusive, fraudulent, racist, demeaning, hateful, needlessly inflammatory, overtly sexual, or impersonating in a way that’s not obviously a parody. Basically, BVN username space should be rated G or PG.

    Poorly Formatted Posts: Posts with bad formatting. For example: posting topic content in the title area instead of the body area will result in a deleted post.

    Posting Deceptive or Malicious Links: Posting links that can be seen as malicious or in any way not related to stocks.

    Attaching Deceptive or Malicious Files: Attaching malicious files to your posts will result in immediate ban.

    Spam: Off-topic, fraudulent, or deceptive commercial pitches. Affiliate links, self promotion or any kind of soliciting.

    Personal attacks: Repeatedly attacking, bullying, doxing, or trolling someone in a targeted, ad hominem, or otherwise over-the-top way.

    Doxing: Publishing someone’s personal or private information.

    Racism, sexism, and other discrimination: This kind of language is not in line with our values of maintaining respectful dialogue and anyone using this type of speech will be immediately banned from the site.

    Trolling: Do not invoke quarrel and distract the members by posting irrelevant, digressive, and inflammatory content.

    Spreading misinformation: Please do not post or share something you know to be misinformation or not true.

    Trademark and copyright infringement: Speech or links that infringe someone else’s legally protected trademark or copyright, recognizing that fair use is a fundamental element of free speech.

    Illegal Acts: Openly displaying or encouraging illegal acts puts the community at risk by creating a false sense of security. Please do not engage in or encourage illegal acts. This includes discussions involving intent to send products that contain illegal substances. BVN will never have a raffle with prizes that would put veterans at legal risk.

    Multiple accounts and throwaway emails: We only allow one account per member. If we detect multiple accounts from the same user, they will all be deleted.

    False Flagging: The abusive mis-flagging of comments or topics by falsely claiming violations of these guidelines.

    Politics: No politics. Leave the division to the politicians. Only posts pertaining to natural medicine laws changing or being introduced will be posted.

    Divisive Behavior: There are enough groups trying to focus on what is different. Let us be positive and focus on building each other up. Behavior that is divisive will not be tolerated. Differing viewpoints can be expressed without anger. We are all here to grow together.

    What Happens When We Find Something Not Allowed

    We will take down any comments or posts, and disable any usernames or screen names, that violate these guidelines. When we take action like that, we will attempt to notify the person who posted it, via email or our web interface, to give her/him a chance to fix the issue or to argue back in case we’re getting it wrong. Users may also report content that goes against these guidelines. Where someone repeatedly violates the guidelines, we may restrict, suspend, or terminate the account.

    We will do our best to be abundantly clear and consistent in enforcing these rules, to be open and honest about it, and to honor the guidelines in their implementation. Of course, we reserve the right to enforce, or not enforce, our community guidelines in our sole discretion. These rules create no duty or contractual obligation for us to take any particular action.
