title: Community Guidelines
We created HackMD to be a community where you can work together, share knowledge, interact, and form relationships. Community guidelines ensure these goals and make it a place where we can all feel proud to belong.
When someone violates these guidelines, our Community Growth team may take several steps to enforce them. These steps are:
- removing content;
- suspending workspaces;
- removing accounts;
- reporting to law enforcement.
## Respect other HackMD users
- Do not share any content that violates anyone's intellectual property.
- Do not spam other users with comments.
- Protect anyone under the age of 18 from adult content with spoiler alert (`||spoiler||`).
- Do not spam.
## Uphold a healthy platform
- Do not publish content that is primarily aimed for search engine indexing.
- Do not publish content that is solely for advertising.
- Do not publish content that provokes violence.
- Do not publish child sex content.
- Do not promote or sell dangerous or harmful goods. For example, weapons, ammunition, drugs, and controlled substances.
