Goodpoint is designed to foster a variety of views based on reasoning, allowing you to passionately write new arguments (or opposing views) based on substance, not unthinking reactions. Therefore, when you make a post on Goodpoint, it must be supported. There are more details for how to do this in the Goodpoint writers' portal but in summary, you must use the editor with a good faith effort to support your arguments (i.e., to make sense).
Your views don’t need to be popular to be welcome on Goodpoint. Controversial, unpopular, novel, or fringe ones (properly supported) are appreciated too. However, posts cannot contain “hate speech.” Hate speech means posts that unfairly threaten a person’s safety or unreasonably promote violence. Special consideration is given to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religious affiliation, age, or disability. This can sometimes be subjective but Goodpoint will do its best to apply these guidelines intelligently and consistently. Because Goodpoint doesn’t have “NSFW” or image warnings, you may not post graphically violent or pornographic content on Goodpoint.
You are not allowed to publish other people's private information, such as their location, contact information, financial, or health data. The exception to this is if their personal information is already generally available (although Goodpoint may still deem it prohibited if it creates an unreasonable threat to an individual’s safety, such as a home address).
Goodpoint is designed to show your true identity. This is done to help everyone see when you have agreed with an argument and potentially give weight to that when they make a decision. For this reason, pseudonym (fake name) accounts are not permitted on Goodpoint. Additionally, you may not pose as the likeness of another person or organization unless your account makes it clear that it is a “fan account,” and you may not otherwise use Goodpoint to be misleading/deceptive.
If you discover content that violates the guidelines, please inform Goodpoint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Violations may result in the removal of content and the revocation of the respective user’s account.
