    2. No omni/carnist apologists. This is not a place where to ask to be hand-holded into veganims. Omnis coddling/backpatting is not tolerated, nor are /r/DebateAVegan-like threads
    3. Use content warnings and NSFW tags for triggering content
    4. circlejerking belongs to /c/vegancirclejerk
    5. Lemmy’s CoC applies here too, of course
    6. in case you need to report something, use Lemmy’s native tool or message one of the mods on Matrix
    7. sorry for the passive-aggressive tone of these rules
