Rude or Inappropriate Messages

We’re sorry to say that this does sometimes happen, and we’re upset to hear it happened to you. 🙁 Please opt a person out if they are swearing, harassing you, sending sexual texts, or using slurs.

Please also make sure to send them the opt out message when you opt them out. If we don’t let them know we’re taking them off our list, antagonistic people sometimes email us (or worse — or organizing partners!) to complain. Better to let them know up front! You can, however, edit the message so you aren't thanking someone for their time if they're harassing you.

Reporting Messages

Please DO NOT share inappropriate or rude conversation screenshots on Facebook or Slack. If something makes you feel angry or upset, it’s possible it will hurt or trigger other folks, too. If a text is a credible threat or involves self harm, you can report it to us by using the “Escalate Conversation” tag in Spoke.
