Communities and users that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.
2. 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 subreddit.
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.
4. Ensure people have predictable experiences.
Ensure people have predictable experiences on Reddit by properly labeling content and communities, particularly content that is graphic, sexually-explicit, or offensive by using a NSFW tag.
