No Illegal Activities
This community is not meant for promoting any illegal activities. Neither is this community designed to be a base for any such activity. Anyone found indulging in such activities will not only be banned from this site but will also be reported to the authorities without delay. Illegal activities include (but not limited to):
— Buying/selling or intentions of buying/selling firearms.

No Religious Fanaticism
You may believe in and follow a certain religion. That is absolutely your choice. However, showcasing religious fanaticism or imposing your religious views on others is not acceptable in this community. Remember, a fool who believes that he or she has the approval stamp of god is the one who represents boundless stupidity and fanaticism. So, keep your religious views in limits and engage only in responsible discussion without any attempts of forcing your views on others.
No Anti-National Sentiments
We do not tolerate anti-national sentiments. Either direct or indirect (that is, hidden behind the facade of freedom of speech) – nothing is tolerated. If you are spreading anti-national sentiments or demeaning your country in any form (such as disrespecting her constitution, disrespecting her flag, disrespecting her culture), you will be permanently banned from this website. It is simple. We do not want anti-nationals, we do not need anti-nationals. You have no place on this website and in our hearts. We do not sympathize with you.
You are not allowed to promote your website, services or products on this website or in the community. You will receive only one warning and all your posts will be deleted. Failure to comply for the second time will mean complete account deletion.
THINGS YOU SHOULD DO:
Keep Things Friendly
Who doesn’t like a friendly environment? When someone new joins, welcome him or her. Help the person in understanding how the website works. Provide useful tips and tricks. In case you happen to be a new member, introduce yourself. Our community members are waiting to welcome you.
People can have different opinions. You need to understand that and respect that. However, if you see someone doing any of the prohibited things mentioned above, do report to us immediately. Opinions are fine as long as they are not detrimental to the interests of an individual, the community, the society, the state, the nation or the world as a whole.
Communities are great to make new friends. A great community needs to be self-governing. It needs to follow rules that, though not always crafted on papers, are understood by everyone. Such rules are essential to remove unwanted elements who know nothing more than creating problems. Because it is a community, it is not always possible to go through every message thread or group individually. We will rely on you (the community members) to keep the space clean and remove any such unwanted element by reporting abuse.
Keep It Safe for Yourself and Others
You are free to decide what you want to share in the community. We will strongly recommend not to share the following information:
— Your phone number (mobile or landline).
— Your Aadhaar number.
— Your PAN (Permanent Account Number).
— Your Passport number.
— Your Voter Card number.
— Your address.
— Your email password.
— Your banking details.
— Your PRAN, etc.
In short, do not share any detail related to your identity or finances. If you do, you will be at a risk of having your identity stolen or at a risk of becoming a victim of financial frauds.
We also suggest that you do not accept any kind of unsolicited help that is in no way related to this community. For instance, if someone offers to help you in creating a group in this community, it is just fine. However, if someone offers to help you with banking problems, it is not fine. If you have banking problems, read online guides from trusted websites or simply approach your bank. It is just an example. Hopefully, you get our point.
You may know a great deal about a particular topic or subject. Feel free to share your knowledge. What you know might be of great interest to someone else. However, the information you are providing should be backed with sources unless someone asks you about your opinion. In case you are providing opinion, you cannot quote a source.
Stay on Topic
One of the basic rules of keeping a thriving online community clean and approachable is to stay on topic. If you want to start a different topic, create a group. It is the best way to create a dedicated space for the topic you want to discuss. Not only will it keep things organized but will also allow easy navigation for all members of the community.
