Just a general note that we strive not to call out individuals in a negative way or use specific examples that could be perceived as negative in nature. No one wants to come into a discussion and see that their mistake was used as a talking point
In the example above, apparently this venomous snake was actually dead on arrival. To others - please don’t post specific examples where the observer was intentionally or unintentionally engaging in dangerous behavior. Instead, you can use the comments section on the observation or a direct message to politely engage with the user. You can also reach out directly to email@example.com in any cases where you’re unsure.
iNaturalist doesn’t have a policy that specifically addresses dangerous behavior, other than the generic “iNaturalist may, at its discretion, change or remove any content that it considers inappropriate or unlawful” in the Terms of Service (and to assume people mean well in the content they’re posting, from the Community Guidelines).
@sandboa since iNat can’t stop people from engaging in dangerous behavior, is the concern that showing images would encourage additional behavior, and to hide them somehow?
