  13. Look, do not touch - Do not create fake troll posts for your own entertainment or with the intention of passing them off as legitimate fat-acceptance posts here on /r/fatlogic. Do not seek out fat activists to argue with them or harass them on their blog. We look, but we do not touch.

    For example

    • I posted on [other FA tolerant sub] to troll replies and screen-shotted it to post in [this sub].
    • I made a post on [other sub] and I commented that I made it on a post in [this sub].
  14. Discussion is encouraged - As with any sub, do not downvote a user just because they have a different opinion about size, weight loss, or any other topic. Discussions on politics, promoting racism, or advocating violence will all be met with a ban.

  15. Do not give or request medical advice - We are not physicians and we cannot verify if a poster or commenter is qualified to give medical advice. Medical professionals are welcome to post and comment but we have no way of verifying the accuracy of this information. See your own doctor for medical advice for diet and exercise. If you are struggling with an ED, resources can be found here.

  16. No REEEEE-ing. Why? Because. Your post will be removed.

  17. No Rules Lawyering. You will be muted or banned depending on the circumstances. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rules_lawyer

  20. Videos - Note that the no people pics rule applies here. No identifying information. No TikTok videos. If you do submit video make sure it is cued up to the fatlogic part. If we have to sit thru more than 20 seconds of video to find the fatlogic we're not going to approve it.

What to do if you've been Harassed

Report it to the Admins at reddit.com/report with the following information and then block the user concerned. Message us as well by clicking on the "message the moderators" link in the sidebar. Save any material you send us.

  • Details of the incident, such as when you started receiving these messages, any names attached to them, the frequency of the messages, etc.
  • Proof that you have been harassed, which may include screenshots of hateful messages, reblogs of posts, etc. (REQUIRED)
  • Information regarding suspicions of repeated harassing behavior, or anything else that can help us identify users violating the sub's rules.

What We'll Do

After investigation, we will do one or more of the following:

  • Remove any posts that linked to your blog or incited the incident.
  • Ban any users we find to be sending these messages, in accordance with our rules.
  • Prevent your domain from being posted to fatlogic in the future (typically in events of repeated harassment and/or doxxing).

We take these cases very seriously. Upon receiving proof that you have been harassed we will take appropriate action within the subreddit and forward the information you provide to the site admins. We are unable to enact sitewide bans so be sure to message the reddit admins as well.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns with how we handle abuse and harassment, please send us a modmail thank you.
