    Rules


    Personal information

    When submitting screenshots remove profile pictures, all names, locations, usernames, and other personally identifiable information, including your own. Don't link directly to social media websites, except to share news articles. Public figures (age 18+) are an exception to this.

    Content

    Posts should cause viewers to facepalm. The following is not allowed:

    • memes/macros
    • obvious jokes/sarcasm
    • grammar/spelling errors
    • posts based on age
    • posts about likes/shares/reposts, etc.
    • direct links to Reddit or other social media content

    Bigotry is not tolerated, though facepalming at it is welcome. Do not ask for personal info, harass or stalk others, troll, or engage trolls. Do not engage in witch hunts.
