Welcome to the Plant Food Gourmet Community - We are dedicated to maintaining a respectful community that engages and encourages commenting and discussions about health, nutrition, longevity, diet, and recipes. Please keep the following in mind when writing your comments.
We are dedicated to maintaining a respectful, engaging and informative conversation. Towards that end, we have basic ground rules for commenting to maintain a civil atmosphere. If you wish to participate in the community, we ask that you follow the ground rules below and the spirit of the community they seek to create.
Plant Food Gourmet promotes a receptive, transparent and civil atmosphere for comments and users. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to voice their opinion regardless of identity, politics, ideology, religion or agreement with other community members, the author of the post as long as those opinions are respectful and constructively add to the conversation. However, this community does not tolerate direct or indirect attacks, name-calling or insults, nor does it tolerate intentional attempts to derail, hijack, troll or bait others into an emotional response. We reserve the right to remove these types of comments where warranted. Individuals who consistently or intentionally post these types of comments may lose their ability to comment and, if deemed necessary, be permanently excluded from the community. A detailed explanation of what may violate our comment protocol can be found here.
Every person's opinion is valuable and unique. Pretending to be someone else removes that unique value from you or from others. Don't misrepresent yourself or others, or spread mis-information. If you do, you will make the community a less enjoyable and valuable place to be and misrepresentation may be removed when we see it. Be yourself, and only yourself.
Respect Others - Please be polite to all the members of the Community, including other commenters, and the subjects of articles. Also, keep in mind that there are real people reading your comments.
If your comments make this community a less civil and enjoyable place to be, you and your comments may be excluded from it.
Safe Space - Above all, we believe that the Plant Food Gourmet Community should be a safe and welcoming space for all individuals, groups and their ideas. As such, any rudeness, insults, hate, hostility, or negativity may be removed and you may lose your ability to comment.
Purposefully insulting and hostile language or personal threats are not welcome here. If you directly or indirectly threaten the physical or mental well being of a member of this community, or an individual or group, you may be removed immediately. If a credible threat is made against an individual or group, not only may it be removed but it is likely that it will be reported to law enforcement agencies and we will cooperate with them to any extent requested. Personally identifiable information should never be posted to the Plant Food Gourmet comments section for the privacy and protection of all community members. This includes, but is not limited to, full names, addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses. Any comments that contain this information may be deleted.
