  • Creating accounts or using existing accounts to send unsolicited advertisements to other people on the platform or to harass other individuals on the platform.

This includes any content that would violate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). We respond to DMCA requests as described in our Terms of Service.

  • Sharing any type of imagery that depicts real-life violence, gore or animal cruelty. However, an exception to this rule has been made for violence portrayed in media (including movies, games, books and such).
  • The selling and buying of Revolt accounts is prohibited.
