Facebook Group Approval Form

Thank you for your interest in Black & Poly. We are a Black polyamory resource and discussion group with membership open to people of any ethnicity, race, color, whatever. Discussions may generate passionate debate. That’s expected and acceptable; personal attacks and offensive language are not. Please, if you must, attack the point and not the person. Respect is paramount and we hope that all are as insistent on giving respect as they are in being respected.

It’s also important to know that this is not a dating site, pick-up or hook-up venue, nor is it a polygamy (polygyny, polyandry, group marriage or anything related) or swinging/swinger group. We don’t generally allow introduction posts or family photos, Age/Status/Location posts, or posts stating what you're ‘looking for.’ Be mindful of uninvited incursions into member message boxes; the group is not designed or intended to facilitate anyone’s efforts to ‘complete’ an intimate configuration, whether a third or other multiple.

We never allow pornographic representations, sexually explicit content, or content that may violate Facebook Terms of Service.

For those who may be concerned about privacy, this is a CLOSED GROUP (anyone can see the group and who's in it; only members can see posts). That also means that we take the security of your posts seriously. Disclosing or sharing the contents of the posts of others, which includes photographs and other proprietary images, is frowned upon with significant prejudice. Egregious forms of this inappropriate sharing include copy-paste distribution of photographs and threads or strings within. While we don’t have an interest in getting into anyone’s personal affairs, others in the group need to feel secure. Bottom line: Members can be banned unceremoniously for violating the privacy provisions, inferred or explicit, of this group.

Please don’t bring negative reports of other groups to us. Our administrators will delete them immediately. We don’t want to be in the middle of any drama. We’re good with everyone, pretty much. (Make love, not war.)

Share your concerns, suggestions, or criticisms with the group’s owner or with any of the administrators. We genuinely want the experience here to be fulfilling.

There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. And the answers provided by members are not up for debate on this post. We have a STRICT non-disclosure policy in regards to fellow members and their privacy. And any one found to not be in observance of this policy will be promptly removed from B&P for their indiscretions.

If you have questions about this form or your membership approval, inbox one of the group's administrators or contact Kato Cooks--https://www.facebook.com/KatoCooks.
