Welcome! FAST is dedicated to fostering an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community. This commitment is at the heart of our guidelines listed below. Please take a few minutes to read our guidelines below— we really appreciate it.

We ask you to encompass the three values: Be Kind, Be Trustworthy, and Be Professional, when posting content and interacting with our community.

Be Kind

Do not post harassing content: We don’t allow bullying or harassment. This includes targeted personal attacks, intimidation, shaming, disparagement, and abusive language directed at other members. Do not reveal others' personal or sensitive information (for example, doxing), or incite others to do the same. You may not engage in trolling or other repetitive negative content that disrupts other members or conversations on the platform.

Do not threaten, incite, or promote violence: We don’t allow threatening or inciting violence of any kind. We don’t allow individuals or groups that engage in or promote violence, property damage, or organized criminal activity. You may not use FAST to express support for such individuals or groups or to otherwise glorify violence.

Be Trustworthy

Do not share false or misleading content: Do not share content that is false, misleading, or intended to deceive. Do not share content to interfere with or improperly influence an election or other civic process. Do not share content that directly contradicts guidance from leading global health organizations and public health authorities; including false information about the safety or efficacy of vaccines or medical treatments.

Do not create a fake profile or falsify information about yourself: We don’t allow fake profiles or entities. Do not post misleading or deceptive information about yourself, your business, your qualifications, work experience, affiliations, or achievements. Do not use an image of someone else, or any other image that is not your likeness, for your profile photo. Do not associate yourself on FAST with a business or organization that you are not actually professionally associated with. Do not use or attempt to use another person's FAST account or create a member profile for anyone other than yourself. And do not share your FAST account with anyone else.

Do not scam, defraud, deceive others. Do not use FAST to facilitate romance scams, promote pyramid schemes, or otherwise defraud members. Do not share malicious software that puts our members, platform, or services at risk.

Be Professional

FAST is dedicated to fostering connections among professionals in the farmed animal movement, with the aim to enhance both productivity and success. Our platform encourages expansive discussions on advocacy, emphasizing the need for professional discourse. We uphold a standard of professionalism, where members are expected to engage with one another respectfully and civilly. It is important to avoid any interaction or content sharing that is discourteous, unsuitable, or disrespectful.

Do not be hateful. Our policy strictly prohibits content that is harmful, demeaning, intimidating, dehumanizing, or that incites or threatens hatred, violence, or discriminatory actions against individuals or groups based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, nationality, caste, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, age, or disability. Avoid using slurs or language that is racially, religiously, or otherwise offensive and designed to incite or promote hatred or division.

Do not engage in sexual innuendos or make unwanted advances. We prohibit expressions of unsolicited attraction, desires, romantic or marriage proposals, sexual advances or innuendos, and lewd remarks. FAST is for professional networking, not dating. Refrain from using it to pursue romantic interests, request dates, or comment sexually on someone's appearance. Sending unwanted messages, posts, comments, or sexually explicit images is strictly forbidden.

Please refrain from sharing harmful or disturbing content. While material related to farmed animal advocacy, like factory farm footage, is permissible, it must not depict sadistic harm to animals. We strictly ban content that is excessively graphic or shocking, involves criminal activities, weapon creation, drug abuse, or threats. Promotion of escort services, prostitution, child exploitation, or human trafficking is also prohibited. Additionally, content that promotes self-harm, suicide, self-mutilation, or eating disorders is not allowed. Sharing nudity or any form of sexual activity is forbidden.

Do not spam members or the platform. We don't allow untargeted, irrelevant, obviously unwanted, unauthorized, in appropriately commercial or promotional, or gratuitously repetitive messages or similar content. Please make the effort to create original, professional, relevant, and interesting posts in order to gain engagement. Don't do things to artificially increase engagement with your posts.

Thanks for reading!

Please note that these community guidelines are a work in progress and significant changes may be made within the next few months. Please check back for updates.
