Report a Site

If you find a site that violates our User Guidelines or Terms of Service, we want you to let us know about it. Please understand that we don’t always respond to these reports, but every single one is read (by a real human being), and the reported site is reviewed accordingly.

More importantly, please note that the team behind strongly believes in freedom of speech. has a vast audience spread across many cultures, countries, and backgrounds with varying values, and our service is designed to let internet users freely express any ideas and opinions without us censoring or endorsing them.

We take all reports seriously, but we won’t remove sites because they are offensive (even to us!). We think the right response to bad or offensive ideas is to speak out against them, not to censor them. If a site is publishing offensive content with which you disagree, feel free to create a site to speak your mind on the subject — you’ll, of course, have the same rights.

If you do have a site to report, please read on.
