We believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.
Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.
Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.

Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include: - if a primary purpose of the reported user is to harass or send abusive messages to others; - if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats; - if the reported user is inciting others to harass another user; - if the reported user is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple user; and - if the reported user is engaging in prolonged targeted harassment.
