Open Social Stream and Open Groups:
All user-posted content within the Open Social Streams and Open Groups ("Open meaning available to public users beyond immediate friends or group membership), will be subject to censorship for legal compliance. All illegal and objectional posts will be deleted and reported to their local authorities, and accounts may be revoked depending on the frequency of user posting illegal content or degree of content beyond the scope of reason and graphic imagery deemed inappropriate within the Open Social areas. Open Social areas must be kept in reason of "family" or "youth" appropriate in both verbal and visual content.
Closed and Private Group Posting:
Closed and Private Group pages will have a broad degree of self-moderation of the content that will be allowed on their group page. As long as the Group pages remain private and closed most content will be allowed as long as it conforms within the constraints of the law. No presentation of child pornography is acceptable within closed groups. Groups that begin to post illegal content will be closed immediately, and accounts will be reported to law authorities.
