-**Avoid Self-Advertising and SPAM:** Do not abuse promoting your own business and products, especially if they are not related to the teachings of Shambhala (extensive advertising). Do not post irrelevant or repetitive messages (spam) in world-wide groups or a large number of groups. 
  
 **Scrutinize the sources of information you share**: Posting misinformation can be quite harmful to others, and the consequences can be especially serious with regards to medical or political topics, or about emerging crises.

Ask whether your sources might be motivated to distort evidenced-based findings.  **Scrutinize the sources of information you share**: Posting misinformation can be quite harmful to others, and the consequences can be especially serious with regards to medical or political topics, or about emerging crises.
