Community Guidelines

Our Community Guidelines governs your relationship with Xenia, your use of Xenia's web site and app, and access to all services and products provided by Xenia. By accessing Xenia web site or using the Xenia App, you agree to these terms. These terms are defined and updated by the FCC, Supreme Court case outcomes, and industry best practices.

We are committed to limited moderation, keeping banning and filtering to a minimum and promoting freedom of expression in our platform, but if you insist in committing any of the actions listed ins these guidelines we will take appropriate action.

Spam

Spam is repetitive content that does not contribute to the conversation. It often comes in the form of multiple posts of repeating content that offer little to no value to the community and platform at large.

Examples:

Solution:

Terrorism/terrorist organization

Terrorist organizations officially recognized by the United States are forbidden from using Xenia. Support or marketing for any terrorist organization on Xenia will result in a ban.

Under current United States law, set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act, acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended – (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."

While the PATRIOT Act defines "domestic terrorism" for the purposes of authorizing law enforcement investigations, no federal criminal offense exists which is referred to as "domestic terrorism". While international terrorism ("acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries") is a defined crime in federal law, acts of domestic terrorism are charged under specific laws, such as killing federal agents or "attempting to use explosives to destroy a building in interstate commerce".

Furthermore: If an organization has not been recognized as a terrorist organization by the Unitated States yet, but we consider that it should be or that it is likely to be in the future, then we will treat it as such. At Xenia we choose to ban anyone that promotes any sort of criminal activity that may fall under the definition of terrorism either International or domestic. Xenia is nor a platform for violent political activism of any kind.

Product or service recommendations are exempt, but only when in response to a legitimage question from other users. We do not tolerate advertising, or advertising disguised as reviews, or advertising disguised as comentary. Where it comes to advertising when in doubt we remove it and if a user insists in posting that kind of material we may remove the user as well.

Related Supreme Court case: PDR Network v. Carlton & Harris, No. 17-1705

Solution:

Defamation, libel and slander

Both Libel and Slander are forms of Defamation. Libel is found in print. Slander is found in speech.

Under common law, to constitute defamation, a claim must generally be false and must have been made to someone other than the person defamed. Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander, and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel. In the United States, false light laws protect against statements which are not technically false but are misleading.

Solution:

Fighting words or threats to harm

Fighting words are use of incitements to violence that produce a clear and present danger, or a personal assault with the intention of inviting the other party to violent conflict. Examples: Related Supreme Court case: Terminiello v Chicago, 337 U.S. 1 (1949)

Solution:

Blackmail

Blackmail is an act of coercion using the threat of revealing or publicizing either substantially true or false information about a person or people unless certain demands are met. It is often damaging information, and may be revealed to family members or associates rather than to the general public. It may involve using threats of physical, mental or emotional harm, or of criminal prosecution, against the victim or someone close to the victim. It is normally carried out for personal gain, most commonly of position, money, or property.

Anyone who is found to be blackmailing another user will be permanently banned from Xenia.

Solution:

Pornography, indecency and obscenity

Pornography is the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the exclusive purpose of sexual arousal. Pornography may be presented as printed text description, or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity.

Porn does not require nudity. It can be an image, painting, art, or description.

Defined by the FCC under its Indecent Content Clause: “Portrays sexual or excretory organs or activities in a way that does not meet the three-prong test for obscenity.”

An obscenity is any utterance or act that strongly offends the prevalent morality of the time. It is derived from the Latin obscēnus, obscaenus, "boding ill; disgusting; indecent", of uncertain etymology. The word can be used to indicate a strong moral repugnance, in expressions such as "obscene profits" or "the obscenity of war". As a legal term, it usually refers to graphic depictions of people engaged in sexual and excretory activity.

In special regards to child pornography: Any pornographic material that includes minors will be swiftly reported to law enforcement.

Any user found to promote that in any capacity will be permanently banned from Xenia.
