Here are our guidelines. Please abide.

You may not use Malecare's online support communities for any commercial purpose, marketing, promotion or solicitation. This includes promoting a company, product, service, person, treatment, therapy, Web site, support group, non-profit, charity or fundraiser; recruiting members to participate in market research, clinical studies, or surveys; soliciting donations for charitable causes or for yourself; presenting your resume or using Malecare to seek employment; and soliciting malpractice clients. Commercial entities are not permitted to sign up or create profiles on Malecare's communities.

This is a prostate cancer support community. Political, religious, and nationalistic expression is a distraction from our purpose and are forbidden.

We have zero tolerance for hate speech of any kind, including but not limited to threats of violence against individuals or the community, bigotry, racism, homophobia, threats because of opinions or creed nor will we tolerate the promotion of purveyors of hate speech. Violations of this kind will be reviewed by our team and can result in removal of posts, replies and all privileges.. In some cases, members may be restricted from posting for a period of time. We will always strive to maintain a safe community for all.

Hi Darryl,

I have question regarding "Violations of this kind will be reviewed by our team and can result in removal of posts, replies..." . Am I understanding correctly that moderators and yourself *are* able to remove posts and replies?

Of course. We try to remove racist, homophobic, hate speech, attacks against the community and individuals, scammers, etc as efficiently as we can. The safety of all here is paramount. We also try to keep the community focused, so we use our discretion to reduce irrelevant sidebar topics, like discussions about other disease types, for which there are other more appropriate communities. I hope we've done a good job. And when a member is removed from the platform, which is an exceedingly rare occurrence and one which requires review and agreement by multiple people, all of their posts are deleted automatically. We do not have the ability to "delete and restore" post and replies, as some slander mongers have been saying. And members can delete or edit their own posts.
