"Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing."

| Simple Questions | Simple Answers |
| What is this hole? | This holes is a place to both mock and refute the ideas of holess that exist solely to propagate bigotry towards a certain race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. A fuller definition of both hate holess and our purpose, as well as a list of notable hate groups on rDrama, can be found here. More information about our purpose can be found in our FAQ. Troll holess and holess whose purpose is not explicit hatred will not be considered hate holess and links to both will be removed. |
| Why are you doing this? | Part of our mission is to get moderators to step up, because it is ultimately them who decide if their community is going to be a hate community or not. If this has no hope of happening, as is often the case with smaller subs, we want to pressure the admins to act. Obviously they aren't going to quarantine or ban a default sub and since it's not our primary goal anyways, we regularly make an exception for defaults, when hateful comments are up-voted and left there by the mods. |
| What if I'm banned? | Modmail us if you're banned and you believe the ban was unjustified. Please do remember that hurling slurs at the moderators will not improve your chances of getting unbanned. Spamming mod mail is not a good way to get on our good side. We have a ban appeals process which is as simple or as complex as you want it to be.|
| What if I'm from a hate hole? | People from hate holess can post here, but there are enforced limitations on what you are allowed do in such a case. See here for more information. Be civil.
| Simple Rules | Those Rules Explained|
| Boycott hate, don't participate | Per rDrama Sitewide Rule 2, Vote Manipulation & Interfering With \ Disrupting Other Communities are Prohibited. When you view linked holes, posts, or comments, Do Not Vote, Comment, or Otherwise Engage. Why? If you do so, rDrama will action your account, and we will ban you from participating in /r/AgainstHateSubreddits. |
| Follow the rDrama rules | We enforce the global rDrama rules here in AHH; any doxxing or spamming in particular will be met with immediate ban. Given that brigading is against the rules of rDrama, if you are found to be commenting in a linked post after it was made, you will be banned from further participation in this sub. It goes without saying that calls to violence or doxxing will not be tolerated. Racial, ethnic, religious, transphobic, homophobic, misogynist, and other slurs will not be accepted - because we automatically remove them, we recommend that you avoid direct quoting of slurs. Depending on the context and severity, users throwing around slurs will be met with a ban or a warning.|
|No self promotion of hate subs| We don't want the holes inundated by submissions from bigots, trying to self-promote their hate subs. All bigoted submissions will be removed on sight, and violators permabanned. Participate in Good Faith AHH is not your soapbox|
| Bigots may only participate in overriding good faith | If you are a bigot from a hate hole, you must reply to the OP specifically, keeping your response civil and relevant. i.e.: If you're responding to a link about African achievements, you can't paste a rant about black IQ in the United States. Gish Gallop copypastas and thought-terminating clichés are forbidden. One-sentence "driveby" **J**ust **A**sking **Q**uestions and flamebait comments earn a ban. Don't play Victim — Take Responsibility. AHH is not your soapbox.|
| No ban evasion | This will lead to your alt being banned, and to you being reported to the admins. Ban evasion is a shadowban-worthy violation of the rDrama rules.|
| No deleting comments | Seriously. It's embarrassing to lose an argument, but deleting comments in a conversation serves nothing but giving you a free one-way ticket to being banned indefinitely.|
| Posts about Regional / Geographic / Ethnicity-focused holess must be in Good Faith. | Posts claiming that a holes which is dedicated to a regional / country / ethnic group, is hosting a culture of hatred - must be reviewed by a moderator before being posted, and must be in Good Faith and with Clean Hands; AHH is not a proxy for international slapfights.|
| No small subs| If there are fewer than 1000 subscribers to a given hole, please don't submit a link to items on it or to it, unless it has been previously featured on /r/AgainstHateSubreddits, or the moderators have approved featuring the hole. Search AHH for prior submissions If in doubt, message the mods.|
| Treat hatred seriously|"Hitler might have been a bad guy but he was kind to dogs" -- Quick, is this a joke? -- or a Nazi trying to wheedle someone into a conversation about how Nazis aren't all bad guys and maybe have some good aspects --? Hatemongers delight in subverting the mission of AHH by platforming thinly-veiled propaganda here, and by reporting to the admins sarcastic comments to get people suspended. Don't Be That Guy. Be sincere & straightforward. Avoid even the appearance of bigotry|
|Do not debate economic theory|This is not the appropriate sub to do so. We encourage you to take these matters elsewhere. As a reminder, we take slapfighting and calls to violence seriously here.
|No shitposting|This is purely subjective. No slap fights. We may choose to warn you. We may not.
