Social Media Codes of Conduct 2013

The following codes of conduct were adopted and posted on the respective platforms September 3rd, 2013.

Mensa Canada Facebook Page

Our Facebook page is a place for participants to interact with us and each other. We very much welcome your contributions. Try to have fun and not get mad at each other.

Join us by sharing your thoughts, your ideas and stories and by participating in ongoing conversations. While we encourage you to use this space as an open forum, we ask that you always respect the opinions of fellow community members.

Do not do anything that would make anyone else uncomfortable or make them not want to participate.

If you disagree, that is okay; but remember that it is appropriate to attack the argument, not the person (not “you’re an idiot”, but for example “your argument is flawed because of”).

If you want to teach something or share an idea, it must be concrete or readers won’t get the point.

We realize that we are all adults and entitled to express our personal opinions, but as Mensans we should hold ourselves to a higher standard of literacy and eloquence. Profanity will not be tolerated, but also remember that just because a post doesn’t contain profanity doesn’t mean it’s appropriate.

No abusive behaviour or personal attacks will be tolerated. When there is an issue, inquire first, get the facts straight and judge later.

We do care about our community and its individual members, so, in accordance with Facebook’s Community Standards, we reserve the right to delete abusive or profane comments and to block persistently disruptive users.
