Website Conduct Policy
The ESP website was redesigned in Fall 2013 to make our site more focused on building a strong community of ESP users and fans around the world. Since then, thousands of people have registered as members of the ESP community, and we thank you for your support.
It has also become apparent that while the grand majority of the ESP site members are contributing positively to the community, there have been cases where unacceptable behavior has occurred. It is our responsibility to provide a clearly defined code of acceptable conduct as members of the ESP community. We will judge reports of transgressions of the below rules on a case-by-case basis. Actions we may take on a per-case basis may include the following:
- Removal of the offensive content.
- Removal of all posted content of the user.
- Temporary suspension from site interaction.
- Permanent ban from ESP site membership.
Please note the following, which is applicable to all areas of the ESP website including our forums, private messages, poll responses, blogs, and any other area of the site where members can interact.
1. Content you post that can be interpreted as offensive or threatening to any other member of the community or is prohibited.
2. Any type of bullying to other members of the ESP community is not acceptable. Abusive behavior of any kind can result in an immediate and permanent ban from the ESP community membership.
3. “Ad hominem” (i.e. personal attacks) of any kind toward any member of the ESP community will not be accepted.
4. Any type of picture or other graphic posted that could be considered pornographic or otherwise offensive will be removed and may result in a suspension or ban from the community.
5. Posts that display or encourage any kind of racism or bigotry will also be deleted, and will result in disciplinary action toward the poster.
6. Posts that are libelous toward any member of the forum or toward ESP will be met by disciplinary action.
We had hoped that the community would be self-policing, and that it wouldn’t be necessary to be as specific as we now are regarding the acceptable behavior in the community, and again, we’re happy to report that for the most part, the ESP community has been a positive place online where like-minded people can interact in a peaceful, productive environment. Unfortunately, it’s not the case 100% of the time, and now we do need to take these steps to ensure the comfort and safety of the members.
Thank you for understanding, and feel free to let us know if you have any trouble understanding these rules for participation. We appreciate your participation, and hope to continue to improve your experiences with the ESP community in every way possible.
