locked Re: Not permitted groups

Hi Mark,


What about:
Groups dedicated to the promotion of Socialist or Communist ideas.

Subject: [beta] Not permitted groups


Hi All,


I'm working to better signal what groups are not permitted, as I don't think I currently do a good job of that during the group creation process. Here's some text I've come up with; please let me know if you have any suggestions. I'm not interested in a debate as to whether these things should be allowed. I'm just looking for any suggestions for how to improve the text, or if I missed anything.





Please ensure that your group adheres to our Terms of Service. We believe in freedom of expression and Groups.io, as a broad-based service, is designed to respect many different perspectives and enable them to co-exist seamlessly and effortlessly. With that said, we do not permit the following:


- Pornography, adult content or nudity (this will link to the existing pornography page).

- Harassment of any kind.

- Groups dedicated to media sharing or other illegal activities.

- Groups dedicated to the promotion of alt-right ideas.

- Groups dedicated to the promotion of conspiracy theories, including but not limited to: Gamergate, Pizzagate, and Qanon.

- Groups that are designed strictly to be advertisements or to otherwise game our group directory.
