We’ve spent a lot of time talking about things you CAN do with the site, but unfortunately there are some activities we’d like you to avoid. These rules are not in place because we want to make things difficult for you, but because we think the behavior described is damaging to the community and the overall objectivity of the resource.
As a Business Tools user, you are held to a higher standard of behavior than an average user, so if you’re in doubt about whether you’re violating the spirit of the rules, if not the letter, we strongly encourage you to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your ideas.
If you read and understand all the rules provided below, you’re bound to have a much more positive experience on the site. Repeated or extremely malicious infractions can result in a temporary or permanent suspension of your business from the site.
The CODE OF CONDUCT is a document intended for the community that details appropriate behavior on the site. All of these rules are applicable to all users, whether or not they are also business owners.
The CODE OF CONDUCT: BUSINESSES is a document intended for businesses that details appropriate behavior for businesses, above and beyond a regular user. This document also restricts certain behavior outside of our site than can damage our brand or community.
