Inside.com Content Policy

Effective February 15, 2022
Last Revised February 15, 2022

You can post, comment, vote, discuss, learn, debate, support, and connect with people who share your interests, and we encourage you to find—or even create—your home on Inside.com.

Everyone on Inside.com should have an expectation of privacy and safety, so please respect the privacy and safety of others.

Inside.com is defined by its users. Some of these users may help manage the community as moderators along with our staff. The culture is shaped explicitly, by the community rules enforced by moderators, and implicitly, by the upvotes, downvotes, and discussions of its community members. Please abide by the rules.

Below are the platform-wide rules that apply to everyone on Inside.com.

Inside.com community is only what we make of it together, and can only exist if we operate by a shared set of rules. We ask that you abide by not just the letter of these rules, but the spirit as well.

Rules

Rule 1

Remember the human. Inside.com is a place for creating community and belonging, not for attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people. Everyone has a right to use Inside.com free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence. Communities and users that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.

Rule 2

Abide by community rules. Post authentic content. Do not cheat or engage in content manipulation (including spamming, vote manipulation, ban evasion, or subscriber fraud) or otherwise interfere with or disrupt the Inside.com community.

Rule 3

Respect the privacy of others. Instigating harassment, for example by revealing someone’s personal or confidential information, is not allowed. Never post or threaten to post intimate or sexually-explicit media of someone without their consent.

Rule 4

Do not post or encourage the posting of sexual or suggestive content involving minors.

Rule 5

You have to use your real name to use Inside.com. Don’t impersonate an individual or an entity in a misleading or deceptive manner.

Ensure people have predictable experiences on Inside.com by properly labeling content, particularly content that is graphic, sexually explicit, or offensive.

Rule 7

Keep it legal, and avoid posting illegal content or soliciting or facilitating illegal or prohibited transactions.

Rule 8

Do not try to break the site or do anything that interferes with the normal use of Inside.com.

Rule 9

Avoid self-promotion and promoting your company in story posts. We want everyone to share about themselves and their companies in their profiles, while keeping posts focused on recommendations and timely, helpful information.
