Default Define: Harassment

A simple question...

How do you define harassment?

I will add a "No Harassment" rule to The Kupikan Handbook IF we can find an exact criteria of what constitutes harassment.

Just know that there is so much more love waiting for you, but there will always only be one first.

I wouldn't apply it to FT. It's too easy to say, "STOP TALKING TO ME!" when they're not talking to that person at all.

As for private communications, I found a great definition on gmu.edu:
True harassment is methodical, deliberate, and persistent communication that disturbs the recipient. It does not have to be threatening (overtly or otherwise), or from someone who knows you. The unwanted communications are often constant, filled with disturbing and inappropriate content, and do not cease even after you asked them not to contact you again.
I feel the bold part is the basic idea. There would have to be some recognised way of documenting that you've asked them to stop, though. Otherwise you could easily find yourself on the end of "I told Sanyu to stop messaging me 10 times and she keeps messaging me!" when Sanyu was never told at all.

Constant abuse that is ongoing, and without reason.
If the victim, has Blacklisted the harasser, and has made an attempt to ignore them, yet the harassment still has not stopped, Pretty much where there is NO give in the person's abuse.
Making fake accounts to get back at the harassers just makes you more prone to getting bothered.
"repeated, intrusive or unwanted acts, words or gestures that are intended to adversely affect the safety, security or privacy of another" -How it would defined in a court.


..That's all I got to say.

What if the person who claims to be harassed asked for it?

See, but by saying this, we dive into the "blaming the 'victim'" issue.

How about you consider harassment to exists if it happens in the following categories:

-Content or profiles which promotes racism, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual or is otherwise patently offensive to other users
(A group could be considered a religion, a race, and/or sexual preference or a group of two or more individuals)

-Content or profiles that promote illegal activities or abusive, threatening, or obscene conduct; (drugs, violent content such as gore and snuff videos, etc.)

-Spamming (CONSTANTLY writing a word, phrase, random undecipherable text and/or images on FT, Post, ImageBB, and/or a User's Q&A and/or messages.

Example. User123: aldkfhaopigohaophuip User2: Dude shut up User123: hoahihpohgoaphgaoh..


__________________________________________________ _
ALSO THIS.....(sorry for being off topic but it's important)

ILLEGAL CONTENT

I think this one is self-explanatory. You know one when you see it. For example, child porn: there should be no questions asked. However, some things are "questionable" (could be legal OR illegal). In this case, if you are not 100% absolutely entirely sure that the content is illegal, the member cannot be banned. Only ban the member when it is obvious that the content is illegal.

Illegal content is not allowed in any place in Kupika. When you encounter one, ban the member immediately.


You only base illegal content on child porn here.

But tell me this isn't illegal....
(drugs)

Last time I checked it was.....

And if I understand this section of the Kupika hand book the user should be banned..

Harassment would be considered: Intentional harm meant to spur hurt or angry feelings.
This can take the form of spamming, relentless and uncalled for insults, and using discriminatory names.

Interpersonal conflicts with harassment:
-First conflict, the harasser receives a warning and the victim is told to blacklist.
-Second offence, the victim must give proof that they blacklisted the offender, and must show proof that the harasser has again found a way (Ex making a new account) to continue the harassment.
-Should this occur, a ban is the result to both of the harassing accounts.
-Should no proof be available to connect the two harassing accounts, it is assumed to be a new harasser and the blacklist advisory and warning will be the consequences.


Diary's, post's, twits, fleeting thoughts, containing hateful slang, meant in a harmful way.
 

-First reported offence - results in a warning. Strike one.
-Second offence - results in a warning. Strike two.
-Third offense - results in a ban. Strike three.
(An exception to this would be if the words are used in a piece of creative writing, or if someone is relaying an event, or saying what someone said.)



Hateful profiles
-Result in a instant ban.


Spamming
-First offence - warning.
-Should they continue after said warning, a ban is issued.



Did I miss anything?

@pyro It's a picture of a drug, which as far as I know isn't illegal.

(Pirating software is illegal, for example, but is it illegal to upload a picture of me downloading some torrents? As far as I'm aware, it's not.)

@ post above
Hateful profiles
-Result in a instant ban.
Needs more definition. Is writing "I hate sxc_babeee231" on a profile hateful? Is saying "I don't think gays should marry" hateful? Is saying "X is ugly" hateful?

A hateful profile, would be a profile which promotes:
A hateful view on someone, or something.

Someone:
- A profile saying "I hate Insert user name here" is meant to spur hurt feelings, and is therefore considered harassment. And therefore a ban is the result

- A profile stating that you don't like a member and asks for oppinions of other people is meant to spur negative opinions and feelings towards someone, therefore it would result in a ban.

- Should the same type of profile be constructed for a famous person, I.e. George Bush, as long as no hateful terminology is used by the creator of the profile a ban shall not occur to the maker of said profile.

Something:
- A profile stating for example " I hate gays! " is hateful and meant to spur hurt feelings, making it harassment. Therefore a ban is the result.

- A profile for DEBATE, that is stating an opinion in a FRIENDLY way, such as "I disagree with same sex marriage, and homosexual partnerships." Is considered acceptable. As it is not meant to spur hurt feelings, only initiate a debate.



All good?

i think Hina should make a statement on that.. I'll consider it illegal until I find information to make a valid argument


As for hate profiles...here's a good example of one
