Hvr Community Guidelines

Hvr’s purpose is to serve the public’s participation and conversation across the web. Violence, harassment and other similar types of behaviour discourage people from expressing themselves and ultimately diminish the value of global public conversation. Our Community Guidelines are to ensure all people can participate in public conversation freely and safely.
