Complaints Policy and Procedures

Please read the following carefully if you have a complaint about a comment, entry, or other posting hosted at POPisms.com. Some general points:

Before contacting us, please consider contacting the submitter directly if you take issue with their submission. This will often work to resolve an issue immediately without involving us (or worse, lawyers). Some submitters list their contact info on their member page, or, if you have an account you can always send a message to the submitter through their member page.

We take complaints seriously, but please be aware that unless a submission clearly violates our Terms of Service we may or may not disable or remove it.

Below are the official ways to contact us for various issues. Emails, voice mails, etc. that are sent elsewhere will not get the desired response.

Voting / Rating

Nearly all content on the site can be rated or voted on. If you do not like any specific submission, your first action should be to give it a negative rating (1-5 star system) or vote (thumbs-up or thumbs-down). Comments with a high number of negative votes will automatically be reviewed by our staff.

Copyright Violations

If one of our pages or documents features content that is owned by you, and you did not authorize your content to be published on POPisms.com, please contact us to resolve the situation. If you feel the situation is necessary, you may also submit a DMCA takedown request. We respond to all properly formatted DMCA complaints.

Defamation, Abuse, or Threats

We do not tolerate defamation, threats, abuse, hate speech, or unauthorized release of personal information. However, we DO allow well thought-out negative (and positive) opinions - especially in reviews or in our forums. If you find defamatory, abusive, or threatening content on a page, comment, entry or other posting, you can report it to our contact form. When reporting defamatory or abusive content, please provide specific links and/or quotations of the offending material. If the content is written in a language other than English, make sure you provide a translation.

Mature or Offensive Material

POPisms.com is a pop culture site which covers a wide variety of topics, time periods, and media. While we strive to be a family friendly site, our goal is also to identify and track all aspects of pop culture - some of which may include content that is considered inappropriate for some visitors. While we do not encourage the use of coarse language, mature or adult topics, images, videos, or other content; if the content is accurate or on topic (for example, the official title of a pop culture reference may contain a "bad" word, or someone may be referencing a quote from a movie), we may choose not to censor or remove the content.

The use of inappropriate language for its own sake, for defamation or insulting; or any use of pornography may be removed at any time. You may use our contact form to report inappropriate content. More details below:

Offensive Material

POPisms.com may contain content that you find inappropriate or offensive including coarse language, adult subject matter and topics, nudity, and sexually explicit topics. While we do not explicity endorse or promote such content, we cannot ignore it or leave it off of a comprehensive site on pop culture.

Unless content is illegal, threatening, or in violation of our Terms of Service we may choose not to suspend or remove it. Please read the section below for specific issues with "Mature Content".

Mature content

POPisms.com may make reference to pornography as it often relates to pop culture, but we do not allow pornographic images or video (or links to such content). Please immediately report any content that falls into this category through our contact form.

Spam

We do not tolerate spam. Please use our contact form to any spam you see on our site. Please include the URL of the location of the spam so that we can easily find and remove it.
