Ethical Guidelines

While the tweets of @WeareFFM curators are not censored per se, each curator must agree to abide by the following ethical guidelines to become a participant:

    1. No hate speech allowed, including tweets (or RTs) that are racist, homophobic, or otherwise intended to be hurtful.
    2. No ad hominem attacks allowed.
      (Sadly, there are plenty of places elsewhere on the web where the above behaviors are indulged.)
    3. Just follow the Golden Rule, people. Easy peasy.

If a curator’s tweets are found not to adhere to these standards, the tweets will be removed and the curator’s privileges suspended immediately.

Bottom line: disagreement, even sharp disagreement, is fine, but civil discourse is required at all times.
