Dear Friends,

Thanks for joining this chat. Life has been a whirlwind, and I hope that in this group, I can share not just my travels but random thoughts and ideas that tie them all together.

Please feel free to AMA :)




Community Guidelines

At Rappler, our goal is to inspire conversations that, we hope, could lead to meaningful actions. 

We encourage you to use our Communities of Action platform to express your thoughts and tackle issues that matter to you and your community. We ask that you keep a cool head and an open mind.

These guidelines will help ensure a safe space that respects dialogue and diversity, and will do no harm. 

1. Be kind and courteous. Let’s treat everyone with respect. We encourage healthy debates and conversations that foster understanding, not contempt.

2. No hate speech and bullying. Remember that you are interacting with a diverse group of individuals from different backgrounds and expertise. Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying and degrading comments of any kind are not allowed.

In summary though:

Obscenities will not be tolerated. The system will immediately filter out posts with curse words. Replacing certain letters with special characters like “_!#$%” won’t work either. Messages that contain obscenities and expletives will not see the light of day.

No room for hate. To ensure that we remain a safe space for everyone, regardless of race, creed, color, or sexual orientation, we will strictly enforce a zero-tolerance policy against any form hate speech – comments that “incite violence or vilify a protected person or group.”

No personal attacks. Treat everyone with respect. Attempts to harass, insult and/or damage the reputation of others are unacceptable. Choose your words wisely, if you feel the need to be a bit more aggressive to stress a point, make sure it is not at the expense of another person. Avoid name calling. If you make an accusation, substantiate it.

No spam, porn or illegal material. This is pretty much self explanatory. You know the drill.

Smear campaigns. Goons for hire have found their way to the Internet, trolls paid to spread black propaganda. They won't be able to live here.
