Freedom of Speech

Linkyou aims to take freedom of expression and free speech to the next level. We empower and encourage young writers and people regardless of age and sex to share their opinions, use critical thinking, inform themselves about the current events and ideas of the world. Without Freedom of Content and Freedom of Speech our work would be futile. That’s why we take with such seriousness the ability that allows everyone to speak from their hearts to write articles and inform others about anything which is important for them.

To enforce the Freedom of Content and Free Speech on Linkyou we use the following practices:

Linkyou under any circumstances does not permanently delete any article or content submitted by a user (except in the case when the author deletes the article permanently).

Please note that we cannot identify users or indicate whether the posts, articles, contents, uploaded media, messages, activity updates or other types of posts are trustworthy and authentic. We encourage every author to provide proper references and sources of information, so everybody can study them and make their own conclusion. Providing those is not a requirement. Please also note that Linkyou is in no position to read and check every single article ever written or published on Linkyou.

Linkyou cannot guarantee the importance or the trustworthiness of the information displayed by any article or post. The private messages and the articles are expressing the opinion and beliefs of their authors, not the opinion of our administrators, moderators or the owners of Linkyou.

Content is considered inappropriate if it
– Is illegal or advertises/invites to an illegal activity,
– Is involuntary pornography,
– Promotes or advocates suicide, self-harm or eating disorders,
– Encourages or incites serious violence against life or health (please read more about this below the ‘Treats’ section),
– Advertises sex-related services (excluding fact-finding articles and memoirs),
– Advertises, promotes gambling in any way or includes links to online gambling websites (including official websites of real casinos) with the explicit or implicit reason of getting people to participate in online or offline gambling,
– Promotes or advertises the trading/exchange of digital or physical items on Steam or on any other online platforms,
– Is a Classified ad,
– Is personal and confidential information (excluding whistleblowing, whistleblowers and any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within a group, organization or company),
– Impersonates someone in a misleading or deceptive manner,
– Is spam.

If your post’s content falls under the categories mentioned above, your post may not get published, or if it’s already published then it will be unpublished (but never deleted). If that happens you will receive an email with the explanation and the reasoning. After that you may challenge our decision by contacting us through our email or via other methods. After receiving your reply, an administrator or a moderator of our team will review your post again and let you know about it.

For more information about the moderation of these posts, please check out our Moderation Guidelines.
