Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the users. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check back here.
Crude or Disrespectful Content: Don’t post content just to be shocking or graphic. You can criticize a person’s post, but never disrespect the person. The intent of Straight Poop is to maintain a positive and friendly atmosphere for free exchange of ideas. Since we are all appalled at stories and pictures regarding abused or neglected dogs, such postings are expressly prohibited.
Violence: Don’t threaten other people on your post.
Harassment: Do not harass or bully others. Anyone using Straight Poop to harass or bully may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from the site. Online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences.
Copyright: It is our policy to remove posting with obvious copyright infringements.
Personal and confidential information: It’s not ok to publish another person’s personal and confidential information.
Impersonating others: Please don’t mislead or confuse readers by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization when you don’t. We’re not saying you can’t publish parody or satire – just avoid content that is likely to mislead readers about your true identity.
Spam: Spam takes several forms in Straight Poop, all of which can result in deletion of your account or post. Some examples include creating posts designed to drive traffic to your site or to move it up in search listings, posting comments on other people’s posts just to promote your site or product, and scraping existing content from other sources for the primary purpose of generating revenue or other personal gains.
Malware and viruses: Do not create posts that transmit viruses, cause pop-ups, attempt to install software without the reader’s consent, or otherwise impact readers with malicious code. This is strictly forbidden on Straight Poop.
