No posting personal information
Posts cannot contain any personal contact information such as an e-mail address, physical/mailing address or phone numbers. And please remember that Gravity-Network.org, like the entire Internet, is discoverable by search engines, etc.
No posts that are solicitations or commercial in nature
Posts cannot be commercial in nature or contain any direct or indirect solicitations, including offers to sell a product or service or participate in surveys, studies, invitations to join closed/private groups, etc. without the prior approval of Gravity-Network.org.

No medical advice
Posts cannot offer medical advice of any kind. You may share your personal experiences, but should not provide personal medical advice to other members.
Posts must be relevant and transparent
Comments must relate to the subject of childhood sexual abuse. Posts completely unrelated to this topic may be deleted. Members must only post information that is true and factually correct, to the best of their knowledge, and credit sources as appropriate. Members should disclose any relationship they have with the content they are posting
Conversations about religion, sex, and politics should be in the context of abuse. Also, they must be worded in ways that are not offensive nor inflammatory. For example, talking about relevant legislation is fine; making disparaging remarks about a specific politician or political group is not.
Posts must be in English
For the safety of our community members, posts must be written in English as we can only moderate in English at this time.
