However, posts that provide little to no value - whether it be education, discussion, or entertainment - may be removed at the moderator's discretion. > > We encourage spirited discourse, but we differentiate between free speech and the advocacy of group hatred.

> # ▼ FAQ & Common Posts
> * Read our FAQ here > * Success Stories: if submitting an image, you must provide a written story as well! Success stories without stories will be removed. > * Experiments: pseudo-scientific research typically involving fake profiles, photos, or details for the sake of proving common knowledge (usually that physically attractive people with good photos receive more replies and messages) may be removed and will definitely be snarked. Avoid posting these as they provide little to no value. > * "You are hot!" email: OkCupid splits its userbase into two halves determined by the percentage of "likes" your profile receives over a certain time period. The "You are hot!" email notifies you that you are in the top half of this userbase. Any posts made about this will be removed. > * "We're experiencing technical difficulties, try again later" error: Unfortunately, this is OkCupid's message to banned accounts. /r/okcupid cannot help you, but you can read here for more information on what you can do.
