Our guidelines are simple and are meant to help maintain an atmosphere of generosity and respect, so that everyone can have a positive experience here. They can be boiled down to this: please always try to add value to this community rather than take it away. And keep "No T.H.U.M.P.S." in mind:
Threats (You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence or illegal acts against others.)
Hate Speech (No slurs or stereotyping.)
Unlawful Use (You may not use Circle of Moms for unlawful purposes or promotion of illegal activities. If it's illegal where you live or in the state of California it's illegal here.)
Misrepresentation (You must be who you say you are. No false profiles or false children's profiles.)
Personal attacks (You may not abuse, slander, or vilify another member.)
Spam (You may not publish or post solicitations or advertisements except in designated areas.)
Enjoy Circle of Moms!
I would like to ask members to please refrain from talking about other members in other communities. We can vent about posts in a general sense but none directly about other members. We have to keep in mind other members feelings and respect THUMPS. Even when posts are hinted around and not directly mentioning names it can be obvious who they are about.
So I'd like to ask all of us to think about our posts as if the person they are about is reading them. If it in any way would upset that person, disrespect or vilify them than I strongly encourage you not to post them. Venting about specific threads is allowed but let's try to do it in a respectful manner or in the form of a debate without attacking the OP or other posters in those threads. Feel free to debate which involves attacking the argument but DO NOT attack the person.
Thank you everyone for your cooperation!
