Obviously, if we find you're getting donations by pretending to be someone who actually deserves the donations your account will be closed and whatever money can be recovered will be sent to the original person.
We will cooperate with any law enforcement agencies and close your account if it is so required.
Note: We do support free speech and will not do anything that takes away from that.
Although we want to err on the side of not controlling people, if we do find that your site is for the purpose of exploiting or causing harm to others, we do reserve the right to disable your account.
The more appreciated supporters feel, the more likely they are to keep doing it, so please make an active effort to support the various ways of saying thank you.
SupportStream is about appreciating the things we value, so please do not use it as the financial backbone of any services you're selling.
While it may be tempting to try to increase support by using negative tactics such as guilt or threats of quitting,
this is extremely disrespectful to the people who are supporting you, because you're saying their help doesn't count,
as well as the people who aren't because you're trying to pressure them.
This sort of behavior, while not bannable, is extremely frowned upon, because it can make people feel bad about donating and ruin the experience for everyone.
Since they are supporting you directly, we want to remove the annoyances that ads are causing.
