It was said in the chat that there are no redlines, so I would like to ask what should the redlines be?

Extremely good question. I think in Islam.SE we should get our limits also from Islam.

  • Insulting the others, Muslims or non-Muslims:

وَلاَ تَسُبُّواْ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ اللّهِ فَيَسُبُّواْ اللّهَ عَدْوًا بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ

  • Sectarianism and breaking the community:

وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَلا تَفَرَّقُوا

  • Calling a group of Muslims (who believe in Allah and prophet Muhammad - PBUH) Kafir

وَلاَ تَقُولُواْ لِمَنْ أَلْقَى إِلَيْكُمُ السَّلاَمَ لَسْتَ مُؤْمِناً

If something is beyond the redlines, it should be closed/deleted. But if some post is not violating the redlines it should be fully tolerated.


Check out , , , , and in general (this is a much broader set of meta posts, but you'll find everything there).

Aside from that, the faq has a lot of "red lines" which are good to know.
