1. The golden rule, also known as the Thumper's Dad rule: All posts and comments are to maintain a respectful tone towards fellow Homo sapiens. Posts or comments making rude remarks about other members of this community, their expressions of fannish enthusiasm, comics creators, or even people not remotely associated with comics will not be tolerated. It's perfectly fine to disagree with others and to express your own opinions, but if you can't do so without making it personal, then that's probably a sign that you should take a step back from that conversation. We don't accept passive aggressive or even just aggressive comments with a smiley after them. We don't accept being insulting to fans or to creators personally. You should all be able to separate the artist from the art.
Note: if you see someone making insulting comments, do not respond in kind. Contact a moderator to let them know about it.
2. Scans Daily was founded by girl geeks, and members of slash fandom. The moderating team strives to maintain the community as a LGBT-friendly, anti-racist, anti-ableist and woman-friendly space. As such, hate speech, discrimination and harassment will not be tolerated. Democratic dialog and friendly debate however, are more than welcome.
3. SD respects our members' rights to privacy and control over their online identities. As far as we're concerned you are your pseud. Trolling and attempts to dismiss other posters on the basis of their 'hiding behind a fake name' will not be tolerated. Unauthorized public release of a fellow member's contact information will result in immediate banning.
Some examples of acceptable criticism:
"This art is racist."
"Your words are verging on racist territory..."
"You should take a step back and examine your privilege..."
"This story is drawing on racist stereotypes."
