Here is additional guidance on what is acceptable and unacceptable at LightWord Services, LLC (“LightWord”):
Pornography, Sex and Nudity
Pornography is difficult to define, but we know it when we see it, and we do not permit it on LightWord. If content is intended to be sexually provocative, it is unacceptable. If it is educational, documentary, scientific or artistic sexual content, it might be acceptable. For example, content about preventing sexually transmitted diseases would probably be acceptable.
"Hate speech" is any content that promotes hatred against members of a protected group. Racist or sexist content is almost always hate speech. We acknowledge the fine line between what is and what is not considered hate speech. For example, while you may criticize the Syrian government, for example, it is not okay to make insulting generalizations about the Syrian people.
Shocking and Disgusting
The world is a dangerous place. Sometimes people do get hurt, and it’s likely that these events will be documented on LightWord. However, it’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If a post is particularly graphic or disturbing, there must be a legitimate purpose in showing those details. Posts intended to shock and disgust viewers and for no other purpose are prohibited.
Dangerous Illegal Acts
You can’t yell “Fire” in a crowded theatre. Nor can you post on LightWord content that is intended to incite violence or encourage dangerous, illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death. For example, do not post things like instructional bomb making, ninja assassin training, sniper attacks, cracking safes, breaking into cars, street racing, etc.
The LightWord founders all have children, and we do NOT tolerate posts involving children (anyone under the age of 18) that are sexually suggestive or violent. Please be cautious when posting something involving a child.
When you create something original, you own the copyright for it. When someone else creates content, they own it. You do not. Respect others’ copyrights, as you expect people to respect your copyrights. That includes trademarks as well. Do NOT post content unless you own it or have permission to use it on LightWord.
Do not post other people's personal or financial information. That includes phone numbers, addresses, credit card numbers, credit data, social security data, government ID’s, family information, etc.
LightWord is all about sharing and interacting with the community in respectful ways. We expect you to follows the Golden Rule: TREAT OTHERS ON LIGHTWORD AS YOU WISH TO BE TREATED. Do NOT attack or say nasty things about or to someone on LightWord.
Imitation is the ultimate form of flattery. Or so they say. Impersonating someone by copying that person’s content, using a similar username, or posing as that person is considered impermissible. Please avoid any form of impersonation or harassing activity on the site.
Here is the only threat ever allowed on LightWord: If you threaten someone, we will delete your account. Users should not feel threatened when they utilize LightWord. Period.
Suspension or Deletion of Account.
LightWord reserves the unfettered right to decide if any user has violated any of the above community guidelines, and LightWord may suspend or delete the account of any user it feels has committed any such violation. You agree that LightWord’ discretion in making any such decision is absolute.
