Panjury believes in the right to express what we like and dislike. We want to create a system that encourages responsible expression of opinions on everything, with the intention to help people find out the most (or the least) popular stuff around the world.

However, do keep in mind that receiving jeers will result in a loss of reputation.

Will you remove something negative about me from Panjury?

In light of the protections afforded to online hosts of third party content, such as Panjury, we rarely remove such material, but we reserve the right to do so for legal or other reasons.

Please note that Panjury does not remove posts for containing insults or negative commentary, but leaves such decisions to the moderators of particular communities. Those moderators are not employees of or retained by Panjury‚ they are the persons who initiated the particular community and their appointees. While posts that contain such content can be distasteful, Panjury is not in a position to arbitrate disputes. Posts should be consistent with the rules of the community to which they are posted.

The best way to deal with incorrect information on the Internet is to post the correct information next to it. The Panjury community is usually very supportive of such a response, and will likely vote to give the correction greater prominence than the original post. We love a good counterpoint.

 

Is posting personal information ok?

NO. Panjury is a pretty open and free speech place, but it is not ok to post someone's personal information, or post links to personal information. This includes links to public Facebook pages and screenshots of Facebook pages with the names still legible. We all get outraged by the ignorant things people say and do online, but witch hunts and vigilantism hurt innocent people and certain individual information, including personal info found online is often false.

Posting professional links to contact a congressman or the CEO of some company is probably fine, but don't post anything inviting harassment, don't harass, and don't cheer on or vote up obvious vigilantism.

 

Is creating political campaign allowed?

Yes. Panjury does not discriminate among candidates or differing political viewpoints in any way, nor does it discriminate between political and non-political topics. Panjury's terms of service require all users not to violate any law, statute or regulation in the course of their use. Panjury provides its basic service to all users without charge and its provision of basic services for free is not a contribution to any candidate, political committee, or political party committee. Panjury does not control links to political sites, does not endorse them, and is not responsible for any aspects of those sites.
