Metafilter community guidelines and expectations

The fundamental goal of MetaFilter is for this to be a good, kind, generous, inclusive, and fun community on the internet. Some basic guidelines for participation:



Violation of any of these "don't"s may result in deletion of the comment, a temporary ban, or a permanent ban from the site. Repeated violations or violations after an explicit warning are likely to result in a permanent ban. Mods will work on issues with someone who is making a genuine effort, but it's ultimately your responsibility to manage your own behavior, not the responsibility of the mods or community to tolerate it.

Contact the moderators at the contact form to report violations of these guidelines.
