Rules & Approach
If you violate the rules, we track you and refer you to the authorities if you hurt our vulnerable users or breach EU, US, Iraqi, or Kurdistan laws.
Protect yourself, post as though your identity is not anonymous, like you are speaking in public and everyone knows who you are and where you live.
Terrorism & Extremism
Obviously no pro-terrorism discussion or pro-ISIS sentiments (including religion proclivity that promotes this ideology)
Only type in English, Kurdish, Arabic unless it's answering a language related question
Don't report posts that don't meet these criteria as it wastes the admins time to check
No pornographic images, links, videos, etc.
No hate speech, misogyny, extremist ideologies, or discrimination against religion, sex, gender, race, language, country, ethnicity, culture, LGBTQI+.... basic human rights
No overt advertising of products that is just spam
No proselytizing (the action of attempting to convert someone from one religion, belief, or opinion to another)
No doxing (search for and publish private or identifying information about a particular individual on the internet, typically with malicious intent)
No political propaganda
Promote a culture of helping, love, care, nurturing, and acceptance
Keep the discussion civilized, respectful, and polite; and contribute positively towards the community and help others
Rules are mostly focused on individual based hate/discrimination and violations. There is no intention to comply with any broad political based restrictions that are criticising a political party or ideology as imposed by a government entity. In summary, we prioritize protecting individuals; not political, company or organizational entities. Website content is hosted in Europe and America, so we don't capitulate to Iraqi laws we deem unethical or dictatorial or against our ethics.
Feedback to improve or change rules can be provided at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Contact Us | Iraq Network page. You can also receive an official response to complaints or requests for retractions via these methods.
