Terms of Service

Rippel’s purpose is to serve the public conversation. Violence, harassment and other similar types of behavior discourage people from expressing themselves, and ultimately diminish the value of global public conversation. This is especially critical in the domain of public discourse on policy issues. Rippel aims to be a completely bipartisan, safe and equitable platform for all to engage in civic, meaningful discourse around topics to do with public policy, government leadership and all facets of society. We have strict rules in place to ensure civil conduct at all times, ones that do not threaten the safety or viability of either our users or the ideas. To that effect, we have report/block features in place which are monitored closely and any misconduct is handled via our terms of use policy. Our rules are to ensure all people can participate in the public conversation freely and safely.

Terrorism/violent extremism: You may not threaten or promote terrorism or violent extremism.
