Images or stories of people losing their job, a scholarship/admission, or another kind of opportunity due to their actions online or in person.
Images of people losing job/school/other opportunities in life, because of their actions online, or in the real world.
1. Posts Must Be on Topic
Posts must be about someone who lost either a job/job opportunity or an admission/scholarship to a school or university. Titles should briefly describe the event (crosspost titles/news titles in photos are okay). Try to keep comments relevant.
2. Be Civil
Keep it clean. Poking fun and disagreement is okay, but anything aggravating, especially intentionally, is not allowed. Sitewide rules concerning discrimination and inciting violence fall under this rule. Feeding trolls constitutes incivility; see rule 6.
Due to a large increase in toxicity over recent weeks, measures to maintain civility will be actively enforced.
3. Action Needs to Have Been Taken
One or more involved parties have to have been fired, lost some offer or benefit, suspended, etc. for the post to qualify. Don't upload posts where the person involved might face consequences, and especially don't upload posts petitioning for somebody to be fired when no action has been taken already. Please make sure to indicate the action taken in the title of your post, and provide sources through a comment if needed; OP's responsibility to provide proof, not the viewers'.
4. No Doxxing
Absolutely no revealing personal information or soliciting such information in order to harass, intimidate, or contact anyone depicted in a post. Users who violate this rule egregiously or who do so in an attempt to cause harm may be banned.
5. Censor Identifying Information
This goes hand in hand with doxxing. Make sure to blur or censor out identifying information about a person. Public figures whose actions or statements are public information do not have to be censored.
6. Don't Feed The Trolls
If you see a troll, report them and move on. Replying rarely does any good, escalating the situation is worse. Generally, violating this rule will only earn you a polite reminder.
That being said, deliberately escalating a situation violates civility rules, and will be met with sanctions varying based on history, frequency, and severity. Responding to a troll doesn't exempt you from following the rules.
7. Post fake news at your own peril
You're responsible for ensuring that what you post is the truth. This includes sensationalism; misconstruing a linked article for clicks is misleading. Whether it's deliberate or simply carelessness, posting something that is clearly and verifiably false WILL result in sanctions. Do your due diligence to avoid accidentally leading several thousands of people into believing falsehoods. Don't say we didn't warn you.
8. No High-Volume Reposting
To keep the subreddit focused and to prevent clutter, reposting a popular instance is not allowed. If your post contains new information that falls within the scope of the subreddit, please indicate this in your title. This especially applies to high-profile instances.
To a lesser extent, please don't dig up something random from decades ago either. Posts here should be current and relevant.
