Basic Rules

 

- Be civil

Oriire encourages open and candid discussions and debates but all communication between members must be civil. Differences of opinion are unavoidable but personal attacks are not. We will not tolerate any comments or content that are violent, threatening, abusive, sexually explicit, obscene, offensive, hateful, derogatory, defamatory, or racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable in nature.

 

- Stay on topic

Oriire is an online community focused on African history, myth and food. Comments, questions and contributions should be relevant to the topics being discussed. Unsolicited personal or commercial advertising is not allowed.

Any user who posts or shares  inappropriate, pornographic or offensive, or otherwise objectionable content to the Site may be banned from the community and the content will be edited or removed entirely.

 

- Don’t spam

No need to post the exact same message in multiple places.
