1. Conduct

We’re all adults, but it’s easy to revert to childlike behavior. You will inevitably get flamed or offended by the remarks of another, even patronized and condescended to, but the best course of action is to take the high road. Insulting someone’s politics, race, regionalism, intelligence, or financial status is generally frowned upon and can result in post moderation or banishment if it persists.

SOFREP is unique in that the people you meet here online, you stand a very good chance they have served in the Special Operations community or military in general. Some of our online personas can also be quite different from our live action personalities too. For this reason, the site editors reserve sharing personal political opinions. The site supports whatever Commander in Chief is in office just like in the Military. This media site is about Special Operations.

Sometimes a conflict can’t be avoided, and it can feel really good to nail somebody. Take a timeout or consider that you may be alienating somebody you would normally be friends with were it not for the lack of discretion that anonymity can encourage.

Profanity is tolerated as long as it’s used tastefully. That may be an oxymoron to some, but I think some words have their place in our everyday vernacular. Just use it sparingly and in good taste.

No porn.  There are a million places you can find porn on the Internet, but this is a site that should be safe to surf with your kids sitting on your lap, so let’s keep this place as family friendly as possible by not posting images that are inappropriate or disrespectful to our small female audience.  There will always be those who try to tread this line, so if you have to wonder, err on the conservative side.

Be respectful of the discussion and stay on topic. Many topics are started in earnest to seek answers or information about a Special Operations topic. Though it may seem funny, please refrain from derailing or hijacking the relevant discussion.

2. Content Moderation Policy
First and foremost, SOFREP is an edgy Special Operations media website. All topics submitted, and especially those outside the scope, are subject to evaluation, moderation, or removal at the discretion of moderators. Administrators and moderators reserve the right to move, edit, or delete user-contributed forum posts and images.
