We believe social media is a powerful tool for productive conversations with our community about upcoming events, news and general information.
We wish to encourage this type of communication among all users, but to keep conversations engaging and respectful, we follow some principles that we apply to all our social media platforms:
- We don’t accept content that’s illegal, inappropriate, obscene, offensive, defamatory, threatening or abusive—this is just plain rude.
- We don’t accept chain letters, pyramid schemes, or fraudulent or deceptive messages—we’re authentic, not dishonest.
- We refuse spam—no one has time for this.
