SPN Content Policy

SPN is a vast network, of professional and social communities, built for and ran by you, the SPN users. In these networking communities, you can do a lot. Through SPN, and these networking communities, you can share a wide range of content for a wide range of reasons.

Some of these communities are very professional and can help build anyone’s career. There are also some communities that might be offensive or crude. Not every community is going to be for you, and that is OK. We are big fans of the freedom of speech on SPN. Why have a review and entertainment site, if people can’t be honest and entertaining? Now, we all have different views on what is honest and/or entertaining, which is also OK.

While there may be some communities that aren’t for you, and some really offensive communities, no community on SPN is allowed to become a weapon against others. We will not tolerate any type of hate speech or content that promotes otherwise illegal or completely morally corrupt people, places, and things. No hate symbols or pushing of hate in general. Every community on SPN should be somewhat welcoming to everyone. Communities on SPN must strive to follow the golden rule to some degree.

Everyone that visits SPN should feel safe and protected. If you prevent other people from feeling safe on SPN, you won’t be around long.

Every community ( groups and forums ) on SPN is built and ran by users. These community moderators help manage the whole SPN community. Each community on SPN must follow the rules of SPN, but the moderators set the rules and policies for their community. Community moderators largely create and enforce their own rules. Each community should contribute to the overall health of SPN.

This site is on the internet, so we aren’t going to lose sleep over every piece of content. We do not allow content that you would not see on other professional and social media networks. That leaves a lot of wiggle room, we know. SPN is what we build together, and we want to build a beneficial social media network for professionals in every legal (and ethical) industry in the world.

We ask that you follow the rules and help others follow them too. Please report any content that you feel is outside the reasonable expectations of a social media website in today’s digital world.

Here are some basic rules involving content on SPN

  1. Remember there are humans on the other end of every interaction. SPN is a place for building a helpful community and strong network for everyone. This is not a place for attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people. We don’t like bullies.
  2. Follow the rules of the community you are in. We suspend people for messing with other people’s communities.
  3. Respect other peoples’ privacy and peace. Instigating harassment, for example by revealing someone’s personal or confidential information, is not allowed. Never post or threaten to post intimate or sexually-explicit media of someone without their consent. We don’t like creeps either.
  4. Do not share or encourage the sharing of sexual, abusive, or suggestive content involving minors. Any predatory or inappropriate behavior involving a minor is also strictly prohibited. We will report that sort of content to the appropriate authorites. See rule #3 about not liking creeps. No escorts.
  5. You don’t have to use your real name to use SPN, but don’t impersonate an individual or an entity in a misleading or deceptive manner. You can be Santa or the Tooth Fairy, if you want to be.
  6. This isn’t a porn site. If you want to promote adult entertainment, do it with common sense. Do it descreetly. We don’t like promoting the illegal-sex-trade, but we aren’t banning all forms of adult entertainment on SPN. Promote your nightlife, strip club, or pole dancing class operations accordingly. No sex acts or gratuitous nudity. If you see it on the beach or one of the top 5 social media sites, we will most likely ignore it, until it gets reported.
  7. We are OK with legitimate casinos and legal gambling operations. We will not think twice about deleting or suspending accounts that promote shady gambling sites and operations.
  8. No predatory, malicious, or otherwise misleading content allowed.
  9. Keep it legal, and avoid posting illegal content or soliciting or facilitating illegal or prohibited transactions.
  10. Don’t break the site or do anything that interferes with normal use of SPN. Again, instant suspension with no excuses or questions asked. We have banned entired domains and neighborhood IP addresses. Don’t get your neighbors banned from SPN, because that isn’t cool.
