REPORTING ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR

We strive to welcome people to an environment that is free from abusive content.
To do this, we rely on our users. If you see something on Howdy that you believe to be offensive or inappropriate please report it to us.
We will review things you report to help make sure Howdy remains safe.

Please bear the following in mind:

We may take action if a user is deemed to have been abusive or inappropriate towards another user.
Reporting something doesn’t guarantee that it will be removed because it may not be deemed to be offensive or inappropriate by the Howdy team.
Our content reviewers may contact you for further information about communications between you and the reported user.

If you report content, we may be in touch with you to clarify what content was abusive or inappropriate.
The number of reports does not impact whether something will be removed. We never remove content simply because it has been reported a number of times.
The consequences vary depending on the severity of the violation and the person’s history on Howdy. For instance, we may warn someone for a first violation,
but if we continue to see further violations we may restrict a person’s ability to network on Howdy or ban the person from our app and/or website.

We also offer you the ability to block people. People also often resolve issues they have about a piece of content by simply getting in touch with the person who messaged them.

distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment,
