Terms and Conditions
THE BASIC CONCEPT AND APPROACH FOR THE SOCIAL PLATFORMS @ EMP (EXPLORATORY MINDS PROJECT),
because of controversy of some subjects here in. this terms and conditions page needs a little bit of back up that can be related to an about page, so that its clear of our intentions here
While we realise many social platforms out there have this mantra of being neutral and claim to be platform for ''ALL IDEAS'' we think this is almost impossible. As all ideas are not all subjects or more correctly all perspectives are not all subjects. We do value alternative perspectives on things from science,technology and even what is consciousness to name just a few.
However when it comes to ideas or ideologies, and certain perspective's on how to live life inline with what individuals feel is right or justified, not all of these are safe for the betterment for the human race as a whole. Certainly the world has seen some terrifying ideas within religious extremism. Belief's tend to alter behaviour because as human being's we act out our life inline with what we belive.
Because of this you can't agree with everything and just be happy about it, whether you run a project or not, you will and do have an agenda, world view,a perspective and an opinion on things.
Yet many who own 1 or more social networks tend to pretend they don't and then sometimes end up contradicting themselves via seemingly unjustified bans. We are upfront and blunt about our intentions here. This is not to be rude ,the main motive is to be clear because we wont waste your time with ambiguity so that you end up wasting ours.
Dispite claiming not to be ambiguous there are unconventional take's on some of the projects subjects and interest, within the fringe arena over the internet we have seen many things that are claimed to be theory fail and fall flat 100% with no room for even a maybe. It appears that these are not theories at all it., but delusions..
We have some things that at first may initially seem controversial and untrue and just as far out, we will give good reasoning to back up these claims, or our theories and hypothesis and are willing to satisfactorily be proven wrong.
Within group/project pages we reserve the right to block anyone who cannot back up a claim that has in our view and many others already been disproven, You are welcome to post what ever you wish on your profile pages ,but we are strict on group contact being inline with the subject for that said group.
profile wall post with exceptions listed below.
WORLD VIEW & BELIEF CONTEXT :
Do not push attempt's to convert others to a perspective on the world or your ideology or belief. This is not a platform for you to plan an indoctrination of others with out their consent.
PORN OR PORN RELATED CONTENT:
Any porn pages or related to porn content will result in a instant ban. The only exceptions are privately shared links in private chats with another consenting recipient
DEFAMATION.HATE AND FAILURE TO APPLY CIVIL DEBATE :
We reserve the right to ban pages who we find disruptive to the community here. we will give our reason's in most cases.
We are not here to serve people s selfish goals for their group or individualism. it's not about one person or any particular group ,but the projects progress is first and foremost based on any merits of the ideas members can offer . not about their individualism.
We are not a platform for your claims of marginalisation of your said group or what ever you claim to be. We only care on what you have to offer towards the project for its progress, with a strong focus on intellectual debate minus confirmation bias, within the subject's focused on @ the project.
Any hate post will be deleted and or result in a ban depending on the seriousness in our view of the post.
We welcome debate, just make sure you debate not flat-out argue, hate and then cry victim, merely because you want to be heard and only you.
To be clear on what a Debate is, it is a process that involves formal and civil discussion on any particular topic. It is within debate that both opposing views are willing to be wrong or learn a new view-point on the orignal claim in order to move forward in progress and learning on what ever the topic is that's being debated. an ideal debate should be formal and moderated and with an audience. If you are still unclear what a debate is versus an argument then please inform yourself then come back.
MODERATED BY REAL PEOPLE FOR REAL PEOPLE :
This social network is small enough to be moderated by real people, so there is no bot's watching your activity . its real people.
This works both ways too , meaning any comments under the blogs articles should be related to the article's subject otherwise we consider it a comment bot and will delete the comment.
ACCOUNTS FOR OBSERVATION OF CONTENT:
If you wish to merely be an observer and not take interactive participation that's ok . we can't force you to interact.
but we want you to enjoy your stay, the above rules are in place for the betterment and experience of all members of the project if you disagree with any of them please consider a different platform, we wont pretend to be all soft and fuzzy for everyone here, after what we have seen on other networks, we find that mind-set simply doesn't work, and often they become what they claim to resist.
One last thing to consider before you sign up, if you havent already , that is we also reserve the right to disable accounts that have no login for 24 months.
There will be exceptions,we think this is generous and fair. any more than that with no login activity at all then it maybe that you have no wish to be here, the current reasoning for this is that we are on a limited budget and need server space. this may change as the project progresses.
