Criminal Behavior and Violence Violence and Incitement
Our goal is to stop any potential offline harm that might result from BITANDEX content. We eliminate language that incites or aids severe violence, even though we recognize that people frequently express scorn or disagreement by threatening or asking for violence in non-serious ways. When we believe there is a real possibility of physical danger or immediate risks to public safety, we take down content, disable accounts, and cooperate with law officials. We also make an effort to distinguish between casual utterances and anything that poses a genuine risk to the public or individual safety by taking language and context into account. We may also take into account additional facts, such as a person's public profile and the dangers to their physical safety, when deciding whether a threat is genuine. When we perceive aspirational or constrained threats against terrorists and other violent actors (such as "Terrorists deserve to be killed"), we often don't take them seriously in the absence of concrete proof to the contrary.

Reasons for the Regulated Goods Policy

Additionally, we forbid private persons from buying, selling, gifting, exchanging, or transferring firearms on BITANDEX, including firearm components or ammunition. Some of these things are not regulated everywhere, but because our community is borderless, we aim to enforce our rules as consistently as we can.

If the content:
Rationale for the Fraud and Deception Policy
We remove content intended to intentionally mislead others in order to obtain an unfair advantage or deprive someone of money, property, or legal rights in an effort to prevent and disrupt harmful or fraudulent activities. However, we provide people the opportunity to use our platform to reject these actions, spread awareness about them, and educate others.

Reasons for the Suicide and Self-Injury Policy
We remove information that promotes suicide or self-harm from BITANDEX in an effort to foster a safe environment. This includes some violent visuals and real-time descriptions that experts warn us may encourage others to participate in similar behavior. The purposeful and direct harming of the body, such as self-mutilation and eating disorders, is referred to as self-injury. We allow people to talk about suicide and self-injury because we want BITANDEX to be a place where people can share their stories, spread awareness of these topics, and get support from one another.
We also delete any information that specifically names and disparages self-injury or suicide victims or survivors in a serious, humorous, or rhetorical manner.
Content that supports suicide, self-harm, coordination, or provides advice in any of these areas is prohibited (X).
Content that features graphic images of self-harm

Policy Justification for Child Nudity and Child Sexual Exploitation
Content that sexually abuses or endangers children is not permitted. We are aware that sometimes parents share naughty pictures of their kids with the best of intentions, but we usually take the pictures down to prevent misuse by others and to prevent them from being used or misappropriated by others.
Actions Disallowed (X):
Content that promotes or shows children being sexually exploited, including but not limited to:
Content that shows:
We are aware that BITANDEX may be utilized as a forum for the discussion and public awareness of sexual abuse and exploitation. This, in our opinion, is a crucial component of fostering community and shared understanding. We take down material that represents, suggests, or encourages sexual violence, sexual assault, or sexual exploitation in an effort to foster this conversation while fostering a secure environment. At the same time, we leave room for victims to talk about their experiences. We take down material that promotes, models, or organizes sexual activity with unconsenting individuals or commercial sexual services like escorting or prostitution. We do this to prevent facilitating transactions that might entail forced sex, trafficking, or coercion.
We also take down pictures showing instances of sexual assault and personal pictures uploaded without the subjects' consent in order to safeguard the victims and survivors.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Any content that involves non-consensual touching, crushing, necrophilia or bestiality, or forced stripping, including:
When there is a context that is hostile or threatening, it indicates that there is a lack of consent.
Rationale for the Bullying and Harassment Policy
Bullying and harassment take occur everywhere and can take many different forms, including making threats, disclosing personally identifiable information, communicating obtrusive threats, and initiating unwelcome contact. Because it hinders users from feeling protected and appreciated on BITANDEX, we do not accept this kind of behavior.
Context and motivation are important, and if it is obvious that a post was posted with the intention of denouncing or drawing attention to bullying and harassment, we let others to share and reshare it. Self-reporting is necessary in some situations because it enables us to determine whether the individual being targeted is being bullied or harassed.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Contacting someone repeatedly in a way that is: unwanted, sexually aggressive, or directed towards numerous people without any previous solicitation
Target another private person or public figure with:
Targeted swearing, graphic physical descriptions, assertions about one's religion or blasphemy, and expressions of scorn or distaste

Target any private juveniles, private adults (who must self-report), or involuntary minor public figures with:
Target adolescent private persons with:
Target private individuals with the following (who must self-report):
Reasons for the Human Exploitation Policy
We remove anything that promotes or organizes the exploitation of people, including human trafficking, in an effort to disrupt it and stop harm. We describe human trafficking as the practice of denying someone their freedom in order to make money. Humans are being exploited when they are made to participate against their will in commercial sex, labor, or other activities. It makes use of trickery, compulsion, and force and degrades people by robbing them of their freedom while gaining material or financial gain for others.
Global and multifaceted, human trafficking can touch anyone, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, race, gender, or region. It can take many different forms, and it can occur at different phases of development in any particular setting. Victims of this abuse are unable to consent because of its coercive character.
Although we must be careful to distinguish between the two, smuggling and human trafficking can have similarities and be tied to one another. The procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders is described by the United Nations as human smuggling. It may nonetheless lead to the exploitation of helpless people who are attempting to leave their place of origin, frequently in search of a better life, without the need for compulsion or force. Human trafficking is a criminal against an individual that relies on exploitation, whereas human smuggling is a crime against a nation that relies on transportation.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Content or actions that may encourage the exploitation of humans include any of the following:
Content aimed at:
For BITANDEX, maintaining personal information security and privacy is a core value. In an effort to shield you from potential harm, both material and financial, we make every effort to keep your account secure and preserve your personal information. You shouldn't publish someone else's private or sensitive material without first acquiring their permission. We also give consumers tools to report images that they think violate their right to privacy.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
The posting or solicitation of personally identifiable information, such as (but not limited to):
Content that includes other people's official documents, biometric, genetic, or medical/psychological records
Content that spreads personally identifiable information through external links in order to commit identity theft
Content that encourages identity theft by disclosing the financial details of a company or organization in confidence
Content that makes it easier for identity thieves by revealing the following personal financial details: • Bank account and/or card information
The following are examples of content that encourages identity theft by disclosing other people's private contact information:
Content that uses names and personal information to identify specific people, such as:
If any of the following circumstances apply, content that contains images of the exterior of private homes
Content that reveals an agent's full name or other explicit identification and explicitly mentions their undercover status. Content that contains images identifying the faces of the agent's law enforcement colleagues and explicitly mentions their undercover status.
Unless the safe house is openly promoting its location, contact information, or the kind of service and protection it provides through comments, posts, threads, profiles, or clans, anything that discloses information about safe homes by posting any of the following:
Identifiable city or neighborhood of the safe house, images of the safe house, the safe house's actual address (post boxes only are permitted), or information on the safe house's occupants
The following material could also be taken out
Hate Speech Policy Justification
Because hate speech fosters an atmosphere of intimidation and exclusion and, in some instances, may encourage actual violence, we do not accept it on BITANDEX.
We define hate speech as an explicit criticism of individuals based on what we refer to as protected characteristics, including race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, caste, sex, gender, and gender identity. Attacks include those that use physical force, degrading language, claims of inferiority, or exclusionary or segregatory demands. We divide attacks into three categories based on their seriousness, as detailed below.
Sometimes people share materials that contain hate speech created by others to spread awareness or enlighten others. Sometimes, terms or words that would ordinarily be offensive to us are employed in a self-referential or empowering manner. People occasionally show disdain after a breakup in a love relationship. Other times, they employ terminology that is only directed at one gender to restrict participation in a positive support or health group, such as a breastfeeding support group for women. In each of these situations, we permit the content but demand that users make their intentions known in order to better understand why they posted it. We reserve the right to remove information when the purpose is not obvious.
We permit social criticism and humor on these subjects. Moreover, we think that individuals are more accountable when they offer this kind of opinion using their real names.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Stage 1 Content that targets an individual or group of individuals based on their aforementioned protected characteristic(s) or immigration status with:
Denials of existence; mockery of the idea, the incident, or the victims of hate crimes, even when no actual person is shown in the image; Dehumanizing comparisons, generalizations, or behavioral statements that have been designated (in written or visual form) include, but are not limited to: Black people and apes or ape-like creatures; Black people and farm equipment; Jewish people and rats; Muslim people and pigs; Muslim person and sexual relations with goats or pigs; Mexican people and worm-like creatures; Women as household objects or referring to women as property or "objects"; Tran
Content in Stage 2 that targets an individual or group of individuals based on a protected attribute or characteristics with:
The following intellectual capacities are considered to have mental deficiencies: dumb, stupid, and idiots.
Expressions of contempt, which we describe as: • Self-admission of intolerance based on a protected feature, such as but not limited to: homophobic, islamophobic, or racist
Expressions of dismissal, such as "I don't respect," "I don't like," and "I don't care for" Expressions of disgust, or what we characterize as their visual equivalent, which includes:
Using terms like "cunt," "dick," or "asshole" to refer to the target's genitalia or anus is considered cursing.
Using any of the following, content that targets an individual or group of individuals because of their protected characteristic(s):
Economic exclusion is described as being denied access to financial benefits and having restricted employment opportunities, and social exclusion is defined as being denied access to places (including online) and social services.
Content that uses slurs—defined as words frequently used as offensive labels for the aforementioned characteristics—to describe or disparage individuals.
Rationale for the Policy on Violence and Graphic Content
We eliminate material that exalts violence or revels in the misery or humiliation of others because it might foster a climate that dissuades involvement. With some restrictions, we permit the use of graphic information to inform viewers about problems. We are aware of how crucial it is for people to be able to talk about pressing topics like terrorism or violations of human rights. Additionally, we are aware that everyone's sensitivity to graphic and violent content varies.
Actions Disallowed (X):
Videos depicting living individuals or deceased subjects in non-medical contexts that show: dismemberment; visible internal organs; partially decomposing bodies
Live feeds of a person being executed
Videos or images that show non-sexual child abuse, which is characterized as:
Videos showing someone or something being killed or otherwise violently killed
Still pictures showing the brutal demise of a person or people
Images that depict the execution of a person
Videos that depict torture being applied to a person or people
Videos of physical abuse or fighting involving minors are circulated with a derogatory caption.
Images of non-medical foreign objects (such metal objects, knives, or nails) being accidentally inserted or being trapped in individuals and causing serious injury
Prenatal images that display
Images of animals in the context of a ritual killing that display their mutilation, their internal organs, or their charring and burning
images of the internal organs in a birthing scene
Religious or cultural imagery of non-medical foreign items being willingly implanted through skin in humans
Reasons for the Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity Policy
We prohibit the exhibition of sexual or nudist content because some members of our community might be sensitive to it. In addition, we automatically delete sexual imagery to stop the spreading of unconsensual or inappropriate information. Digitally produced content is similarly subject to sexual activity restrictions, unless it is published with an instructive, funny, or satirical intent.
Our nudity policies have evolved through time to become increasingly complex. We comprehend that sharing one's nudity might be done for a number of reasons, such as as a form of protest, to bring attention to a subject, or for therapeutic or educational purposes. We allow for the content where such intent is evident. For instance, while we forbid some pictures of female breasts that show the nipple, we permit other pictures like those of protests, breastfeeding women, and pictures of post-mastectomy scars. We also permit pictures of sculptures, paintings, and other works of art that feature naked figures.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Fetish content that contains:
Unless one or more of the following circumstances apply:
Reasons for the Sexual Solicitation Policy
People utilize BITANDEX to talk about and raise awareness of sexual violence and exploitation, as mentioned in Section 8 of our Community Standards (Sexual Exploitation of Adults). We want to make room for this conversation because we understand its significance. However, we draw the line when content arranges, promotes, or enables adult sexual interactions. We also forbid the use of sexually explicit language that might encourage solicitation because certain members of our global community may find such language offensive and because it might make it harder for users to interact with their friends and the larger community.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Coordination or recruitment attempts for adult sex acts, including but not restricted to:
Criteria 1: Offer or Ask The content implicitly or indirectly* (usually by mentioning a way to contact the author) requests or offers:
To be considered unlawful, it must violate Criteria 1 (offer or ask) and subtly or overtly offer or request sexual favours.
For instance, it is not unlawful if the material is a hand-drawn representation of sexual action that does not ask for or give sexual favours.
a request or offer for pornographic content (including, but not limited to, sharing of links to external pornographic websites)
Explicit sexual language that includes more than just a passing mention of:
We think that when people don't feel like their weaknesses are being exploited, they can connect and share more easily. As a result, we have stricter standards for material that we classify as cruel and insensitive, or material that specifically targets people who would suffer severe bodily or emotional harm.
We eliminate overt victim-mocking attempts and flag cruel implicit ones, many of which come in the form of memes and GIFs.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Content that shows actual people and mocks or makes light of their early demise, fatal illness, or disability, famine, physical assault, or serious physical harm.
Any text or visual representation of actual persons who have suffered an early death, a significant bodily injury, physical abuse, or domestic violence.
Images of actual animals engaging in any of the following—aside from staged animal-on-animal fights and animal fights in the wild—and being mocked, made fun of, or including sadistic remarks
Premature death, severe physical harm, including mutilation, and physical assault by a human
Integrity and genuineness
Because we do not want to permit content that is intended to deceive or that tries to mislead people in order to enhance viewership, we work very hard to minimize the spread of spam. This content hinders people from participating honestly in online groups and causes a bad user experience. Additionally, we work to stop anyone from exploiting our platform, goods, or services to boost false viewership or mass-distribute content for selfish financial benefit.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Cloaking involves showing alternate material to BITANDEX users and crawlers or tools for BITANDEX.
Landing pages that demand users to like, share, or otherwise interact with content before granting access to off-BITANDEX content are known as "Like / Share-Gating."
Cybersecurity Policy Justification
We understand that the protection of our users' personal information extends to their safety. The genuine, open, and secure environment that we wish to promote is damaged by attempts to get sensitive personal information through false or intrusive means. As a result, we forbid attempts to misuse our platform and products in order to collect sensitive user information.
Actions Not Allowed (X):

Reasons for the Inauthentic Behavior or Impersonation Policy
Because we value authenticity, we forbid users from impersonating others or falsely representing themselves on BITANDEX, using fake accounts to inflate the popularity of content, or acting in ways that would permit other violations of our Community Standards. The goal of this policy is to foster an environment where individuals can have faith in the communities they engage with.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
to avoid enforcement of our Community Standards.
False News Policy Justification
We take our obligation to limit the dissemination of incorrect information on BITANDEX very seriously. We also understand that this is a difficult and delicate matter. Without suppressing constructive public dialogue, we wish to assist individuals in staying informed. The distinction between satire or opinion and false news is equally blurry. Due to these factors, we don't remove erroneous information from BITANDEX; rather, we greatly decrease its distribution by placing it lower in the Feed Section.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
By disrupting the financial incentives for users, businesses, clans, and domains that spread misinformation, as well as by using various signals, such as feedback from our community, to inform a machine learning model that predicts which stories may be false, as well as by reducing the distribution of content rated as false by independent third-party fact-checkers, we are working to create a more informed community and reduce the spread of false news.
Media Policy Justification Manipulated
Numerous editing techniques can be used on media, whether it be images, audio, or video. These alterations are frequently benign, like a filter effect on a picture. Other times, the manipulation is subtle and might deceive, especially when it comes to video content. When the requirements listed below are satisfied, we want to eliminate this category of altered material.
Additionally, we will keep investing in collaborations (with academics, journalists, and independent fact-checkers, among others) to help us stop the spread of incorrect information and misinformation and to help people be better informed about the content they encounter online.
Actions Not Allowed (X):
Video that has been edited or synthesized in ways that are not obvious to the typical person, beyond changes for clarity or quality, and that is likely to deceive the average person into thinking that a subject of the video stated something that they did not say AND • is the end result of artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning, especially deep learning techniques (e.g., a technical deep fake), that merges, mixes, replaces, and/or superimposes content onto a video to produce a video that looks real.
