- When to report a member
Use the reporting feature only when a member is speaking or behaving in an inappropriate way that can be harmful to the JALF community.
For example, you can report a profile when:
- The member has disrespected, insulted or harassed you;
- Their profile seems fraudulent (web images, photos of a celebrity, identity theft, etc.);
- The member has solicited you for sexual services, or has promoted products, services, or another website;
- You believe that the member is a minor;
- The member has made hateful remarks or remarks about pedophilia or beastiality;
- You believe, for any other reason, that the member’s behaviour has a direct negative impact on other JALF members’ well-being.
The following examples are not worthy of being reported:
- The member politely turned you down. (Anyone has the right to say no or to choose not to answer you);
- The member blocked you. (Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do if a member decides to block you. All photos or videos shared through messaging will be deleted.)
When you report a member, JALF’s validation team will look into the report. If it’s justified, the team will reach out to the member at fault to issue a warning or take any other measures judged necessary. Note that the member will not automatically be banned from the site, and that no follow-up will be done with the member who reported in the first place.
If a member bothers you, we encourage you to block them. To learn how to block a member, visit our FAQ page on the subject.
