  • These are the rules as of now:

    The Current Rules (and what is being enforced by the CafeMom Community Team, see below):

    1. No advertising. This is primarily meant to include blatant advertising. A passing reference to your work-at-home business is not something we want to spend a lot of time on.
    2. No extremely graphic pictures, videos or text. If you can hear or see it on TV (even cable), it's probably fine. But CafeMom isn't a porn site -- don't go there.
    3. Don't be a jerk. We will use our discretion to decide who is acting like a jerk, but repeatedly badgering someone or another group, purposefully posting things that are NOT constructive ("trolling") or other truly bad behaviors will not be tolerated. There are real people who are reading what you write -- moderate what you say and be tolerant.

  • Right now your response are up for judgement by not only the CM team but members here as well. If you are reported and it's questionable your answer/question will be judged by members.. if it's obviously offensive, CM will remove it and you'll be penalized for it.

  • I really doubt that is true. Part of the reason for all the new rules is to stop name calling and bashing.

    Make a positive contribution with your questions and answers, and reward others who do so.

    That's it.  We want to discuss here with everyone the right way to do things to create a strong and vibrant community.

    This does mean that all kinds of "little" infractions (even though you might not think they are little) will not be dealt with for now.  So name-calling, being a jerk, making broad, ignorant comments (e.g,. "homeschoolers are crazy!", "liberals are communists!", "SAHMs are lazy!") are going to get discussed in here BEFORE action is taken.  We will take action, but we want it all out in the open.
