Expectations for Listserv and other Social Media Participation

The Social Media outlets used by the DWC to share information and promote Division activities are a valuable source of information to our members. Posts made by members to our public forums should be focused on topics related to the study of gender and crime, feminist criminology, and professional issues related to gender.

The DWC listserv and related social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) are professional academic forums in which members are expected to adhere to standards of courtesy, decorum, and respect in their communications.  As such, listserv members and users of other DWC social media are expected to refrain from sending communications containing:

  • profanity
  • personal (ad hominem) attacks
  • derogatory remarks
  • threats

The above requirements apply to messages posted directly to the listserv and publicly viewed social media outlets, as well as to private, “off list” messages sent to DWC listserv members in response to a post or ongoing dialogue.

Penalties for Problematic Social Media Participation

Failure to comply with this policy will result in suspension of privileges to post to the relevant DWC social media outlet for one year, pursuant to a DWC Executive Board vote.  The offending member’s e-mail account will be removed from the relevant outlet (listserv, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and any additional e-mail accounts registered to this member will be removed as well.  After the one year suspension period is completed, the DWC Executive Council may vote to reinstate the member’s e-mail account.  If problematic behavior persists once the member is returned to the social media outlet, the DWC Executive Council reserves the right to permanently ban the member from the DWC online community.

(Effective November, 2007; edited and approved by Executive Board on April 15, 2013)
