Nouncy is committed to supporting and protecting freedom of speech. At the same time, we draw lines around a few narrowly-defined but deeply important categories of content and behavior that jeopardize our users, threaten our infrastructure, or damage our community.
Nouncy is a website/tool/application/platform for announcing any type of news and building a network of online ambassadors.
Don't actively promote violence or extreme hatred against individuals or groups, on the basis of race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation. While we firmly believe that the best response to hateful speech is not censorship but more speech, we will take down malicious bigotry, as defined here.
Be thoughtful when posting anything involving a minor. Don't post anything relating to minors that is sexually suggestive or violent. Don't bully minors, even if you are one. Life as a teenager is hard enough without the fear, anguish, and isolation caused by online bullying.
Don't post content that actively promotes or glorifies self-harm. This includes content that urges or encourages readers to cut or injure themselves; embrace anorexia, bulimia, or other eating disorders; or commit suicide rather than, e.g., seeking counseling or treatment, or joining together in supportive conversation with those suffering or recovering from depression or other conditions. Dialogue about these behaviors is incredibly important and online communities can be extraordinarily helpful to people struggling with these difficult conditions. We aim to sustain Nouncy as a place that facilitates awareness, support and recovery, and to remove only those blogs that cross the line into active promotion or glorification of self-harm.
Don't post gore just to be shocking. Don't showcase the mutilation or torture of human beings, animals, or their remains.
Nouncy is home to millions of readers and bloggers from a variety of locations, cultures, and backgrounds with different points of view concerning adult-oriented content. If you regularly post sexual or adult-oriented content, respect the choices of people in our community who would rather not see such content by flagging your blog (which you can do from the Settings page of each blog) as Not Suitable for Work ("NSFW"). This action does not prevent you and your readers from using any of Nouncy's social features, but rather allows Nouncy users who don't want to see NSFW content to avoid seeing it.
You can embed anything as long as it follows the other guidelines on this page. But please don't use Nouncy's Upload Video feature to host any sexually explicit videos. We're not in the business of profiting from adult-oriented videos and hosting this stuff is fucking expensive. You can use services likexHamster to host those instead.
Don't participate in schemes to gain non-genuine gestures like follows or reblogs. Don't orchestrate or engage in "follow trains," where users are encouraged to follow lists of other users to gain more followers for themselves. Don't scatter deceptive links to your blog or Follow pages. Don't make bulk or indiscriminate use of messaging features like Fan Mail or Asks to bait followers.
Nouncy's URLs (usernames) are for the use and enjoyment of our users. Don't squat, hoard, collect, trade, or sell Nouncy URLs, and don't register a URL for the purpose of impersonating an individual, organization, or brand.
Don't register accounts or post content automatically, systematically, or programmatically.

Respect the copyrights and trademarks of others. If you aren't authorized to use someone else's copyrighted or trademarked work (either expressly or by legal exceptions and limitations like fair use), don't. It is our policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement as per our Terms of Service and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Treat the community the way you'd like to be treated. Don't attempt to circumvent the Block feature. If you want to parody or ridicule a public figure (and who doesn't?), don't try to trick readers into thinking you are actually that public figure.
Don't use Nouncy to deceptively obtain personal information. Don't post content that violates anyone's privacy, including personally identifying or confidential information like credit card numbers, social security numbers, unlisted contact information, or private photos of your ex's junk (no matter how attractive).
Our servers and the valiant engineers who support them work hard for you. Don't attempt unauthorized use, disruption, or exploitation of Nouncy.com or our other products and services, or otherwise abuse Nouncy's resources.
This one's pretty obvious, but Nouncy is not a place for illegal behavior, including fraud, phishing, or illegally inciting violence.
your account may be suspended and/or your IP address may be blocked. We do our best to ensure fair outcomes, but in all cases we reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove content, without notice, for any reason, but particularly to protect our services, infrastructure, users, or community. We reserve the right to enforce, or not enforce, these policies in our sole discretion, and these policies don't create a duty or contractual obligation for us to act in any particular manner. We also reserve the right to amend these policies using the procedures set forth in our Terms of Service.
