    Hey Shaunie,
    also where are the rules about violence? Get the feeling really bad voilence isnt okay to speak about but i cant find any rule on it ? Like what if i wanted to speak about a dream i keep getting but is violent
    Violence is a very broad subject so there are no specific rules about it. It would likely boil down to the usual things we use to decide if something is okay to speak about:

    - Is it graphically descriptive?
    - What's the context of the violence?
    - Do we have concerns for you or someone else's immediate safety?

    These are rhetorical questions, but these are what we'd be thinking about. It's the same sort of way we think about harm or injury.

    If you wanted to speak about a violent dream, it would probably be okay if it wasn't written in a graphic, overly detailed or triggering way. If there's something specific you're not sure about, feel free to drop it to us in a PM and we can check it over. :)

    It sounds like this has been triggered by something very specific, so we'll get in touch with you privately where we can talk about that in detail.

    Generally though, our approach to enforcing guidelines isn't 'one size fits all'. We certainly do our best to apply them in the same way for everyone, but we will often take any moderation concerns on a case-by-case basis. This means we consider what we know about an individual, their recent posts, the context of the discussion, and any other factors into account when we make these decisions.

    For example, somebody might post and say "I want to die". Our level of concern for this individual and the action we take will depend on the context of the post, the poster, and what we know about that individual.

    Sidenote: we're conscious that this can make certain guidelines difficult to follow for some folks, so we are currently working to re-word and re-position our guidelines to make things as clear as possible. We'll have more info on this soon. :)

    It was more of a feeling that people hate me more than anything. But now not in such a mood where feel everyone is targeting me- now realise rules are pretty consistent.
    But sorry they put you on ban.
