The Mooder Rules
We believe that everyone should have the power to express their emotions
freely and share about their experiences instantly, without barriers. In
order to protect the experience and safety of people who use Mooder, there
are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that we allow.
All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Mooder Rules.
Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent
suspension of account(s).
Please note that we may need to change these rules from time to time and
reserve the right to do so. The most current version will always be
available at www.mooder.com/rules.

We believe in freedom of emotion and in speaking truth to empathize, but
that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced
because people are afraid to open up. In order to ensure that people feel
safe expressing diverse feelings and experiences, we do not tolerate

harasses, intimidates, or attempts to invalidate another user’s emotions.

abusive messages to others;

if the reported account is inciting others to harass another
if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account
from multiple accounts.

religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow
accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the
basis of these categories.

overlapping uses or in order to evade the temporary or permanent
suspension of a separate account is not allowed.
