Responsible Citizenship

American Noise is committed to responsible citizenship and is a staunch proponent of freedom of expression. However, freedom of expression does not mean freedom from the social consequences of your words and actions. We are under no legal, moral or ethical responsibility to host content which we deem inappropriate.

All aspects of your use of this site are contingent upon engagement that shows respect for the value, dignity and human rights of all people. We will not tolerate racist, sexist, misogynistic, homophobic, or transphobic content or expression, or any other content meant to degrade a person or group. This rule applies not only to content posted on this site, but elsewhere. Users who utilize this site, in any way, for the dissemination of the views named above will have their access revoked.

Here are some examples of content that will get you banned:

  • If you share a post on social media and use dehumanizing language to describe an artist, you will be banned.
  • If you share a post on social media and use dehumanizing language directed at one of our staff members, you will be banned.
  • If you share a post on social media, we see it, look at your profile, and determine that you regularly espouse disrespectful, hateful, or dehumanizing views, you will be banned.

We are not the speech police. But we expect our users to comport themselves in a respectful manner towards their fellow humans. If you can’t do that, you are not permitted to access this site.
