  • Abuse, harass or threaten others.
  • Racially or religiously vilify others.
  • Incite, induce, or aid violence, discriminate, harass, victimise or provoke hatred towards others, or are likely to offend, insult or humiliate others, particularly on the basis of their race, colour, descent, national origin, religion, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation or any disability.

  • Use insulting, provocative, or hateful language or images.
