Guidelines for civil discourse
The moderators of Altmuslimah are committed to creating a respectful atmosphere where even strong opinions can be shared in a civil, productive manner. This is only possible if members of this site commit themselves to the rules and regulations of the site and abide by them during their stay here. If you feel that you cannot abide by the rules of Altmuslimah, this is probably not the site for you.
We have no intention of censoring anyone’s ideas, but you may have your comments or membership removed if:
- You are making obscene remarks or personal attacks on people
- Your posts are obnoxious, irrelevant to the discussion, or needlessly inflammatory
- The moderator is having a bad day
Deliberate disruption — such as consistent off-topic commentary — will not be tolerated. Do not post messages that contain personal attacks against other Altmuslimah members.
We reserve the right to remove people from this site for any reason.
Writing and Layout Suggestions:
- DON’T WRITE IN ALL CAPS. IT’S LIKE YELLING, AND IT’S RUDE

- Surround quotes with HTML italics tags (
Message Content Suggestions:
- Always be constructive in your critique of the opinions of others
- Create and maintain descriptive subject lines
