Some ground rules.

These are set and enforced by the mastodon.world moderators.

  2. No posts or links to content supporting, featuring, or promoting hate groups, terrorism, mass violence or calls to violence.
  3. No posts or comments supporting or promoting QAnon related content or similarly disproven conspiracy theories. Moderators have sole discretion to decide if a post violates this rule. Birds are real. The Earth is round. Get over it.
  4. No posts or links featuring sexualized depictions of minors, whether photographic, written, drawn, anthropomorphic or animated.
  5. No pornography featuring depictions of rape or non-consensual violence.
  6. All other pornographic, erotic or NSFW content, whether photographic, written, drawn or animated, must be marked with a Content Warning.
