We respect our users' ownership of and responsibility for the content they choose to share. It is our belief that censoring this content is contrary to a service that bases itself on freedom of expression.
In order to uphold these values, we need to curb abuses that threaten our ability to provide this service and the freedom of expression it encourages. As a result, there are some boundaries on the type of content that can be hosted with Soitsfun!. The boundaries we have defined are those that both comply with active, healthy activities for people to enjoy social requirements and that serve to enhance the community as a whole.
Our content policies play an important role in maintaining a positive experience for you, the user. Please respect these guidelines. From time to time, we may change our content policies so please check here. Also, please note that when applying the policies below, we may make exceptions based on artistic, educational, documentary or scientific considerations or where there are other substantial benefits to the public from not taking action on the content.
We allow Webzine content focused on social dance, recreation and the entities that facilitate community lifestyles. It is all about healthy respectful enjoyment of our activities, events and spaces. Soitsfun! is exactly that - "Fun" and nothing more or less.
There are some exceptions to our content policy on personal pages:
- We have a zero tolerance policy towards content that exploits. Some examples of this include:

- Crude Content: Don't post content just to be shocking or graphic. There is enough of this in the world without individuals considering themselves new authorities on the subject.
- Violence: Don't threaten or intimidate other people on your blog. For example, don't post threats against another person or group of people and don't post content encouraging your readers to boycott or take violent action against another person or group of people. If you can not recommend then don't write about it.
