We are very pleased at the level of participation on Kuzoo.Net and feel it may also be time to repeat important issues to our members. Kuzoo.Net is a social network, a new internet based form of community. Though the format may be convenient and new, our readers are reminded that old fashioned common sense still applies when dealing with the new friends that you will no doubt make here.
As ever, this old adage still holds: “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.” Basically, please don’t jump into new relationships without applying the usual checks and confirmations that you would normally apply in the real world. Yes, all the things that Apa and Ama keep telling you!
Next, a reminder that profanity and everything related to it are strictly off limits as far as Kuzoo.Net is concerned. As you know, we have a one warning only rule – the second incident will invoke a permanent ban for that profile.
Should offensive language or profanity be directed at you, here is our recommended response:
1) If there is offensive language in comments to your profile, please delete or un-publish it if it was used casually by a friend. Leaving it there may invoke a temporary ban on your profile!
2) If offensive language in comments is directed at you, don’t delete it. Just un-publish it and report it to the administrator and let it be deleted by the administrator. Necessary action will be taken against the perpetrator.
In no case should you respond with offensive language or vulgarity as a ban will be applied on you as well!
3) If you receive offensive private messages or emails, send copies of it to the admin with all details that will help identify the perpetrator’s user name. Here again do not respond with vulgarity for the same reasons. If the offensive message was a pm, you should keep it as proof until the issue is resolved.
For repeat pm offenders, you can open the message and select “block user” to prevent any further messages from that person.
Finally, users are urged not to click the Report User button unless you actually intend to report that user. Several users have been known to use that just to make a comment – please use the Comments option on the user profile for that!
