SoundCloud is an open, social platform, made up of a vibrant group of people with differing views, opinions, and cultural backgrounds. We support freedom of speech and the fundamental right for individuals to express themselves, and expect everyone else to do the same. With a diverse community, it can be expected that individuals will not always agree, and that conflicts will happen. We encourage users to be respectful, even if they passionately disagree with each other. We also recognize that sometimes conflict becomes too personal, which can be very upsetting. Our policies recognize the difference between healthy conflict and outright abuse–we take allegations of abuse seriously and will always help in whatever way we can.
