Policy decisions are complex. We consider many different and often divergent factors before coming to a decision about what is best for our community. Because we are a creative community, we err on the side of freedom of expression. We also tend to allow items that have educational, historical, or artistic value, but we know that even those items are subject to a variety of valid and sometimes conflicting interpretations and emotional responses.

Art and history can be provocative, emotional, and divisive. There are some topics on which we may never reach a consensus as a community, and that is okay. We may use art to provoke thought and contemplation and perhaps change opinions, however, we stay away from art that is expressly hateful, abusive, sexual, or targeting a specific group of individuals.

We will engage with our contributors and participants in our forum to discuss specific decisions to help form a policy that serves the ethos of EveryoneCounts and the ideas of the community.
