The Quick Version

Our social media platforms are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the platforms at the discretion of the moderators aand organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors and employees of the Fourth Estate are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the moderators may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the platform.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of staff immediately. Moderators and staff can be identified by the profile badges in their social media.
