The MDC User Agreement guidelines ask that members:
Do not post in a disrespectful, defamatory, adversarial, baiting, harassing, offensive, insultingly sarcastic or otherwise improper manner, toward a member or other individual, including casting of suspicion upon a person, invasion of privacy, humiliation, demeaning criticism, name-calling, personal attack or in any way which violates the law.
Do not negatively discuss other communities or discussions elsewhere (this includes blog comments), regardless of whether or not you link to that discussion or community. This is to maintain and respect the integrity of our own and other communities.
While these guidelines can feel restrictive at times, we hope that more often they help members feel safe and supported. It is ok to discuss your own feelings in a specific situation and ask for support, but it's not ok for the focus of a thread to be on another's choices or actions and not ok to take direct issue with a fellow member.
If you have any questions or concerns, please send me a PM and, as always, thank you for helping us keep MDC informative and supportive for all!
