Please do not try to guess who someone is by describing their attributes.
It’s important that we be respectful of other people’s identity and anonymity so that everyone has an opportunity to speak without fear of judgment or harsh criticism. Anyone can reveal their own identity when or if they feel comfortable doing so. You can also send a Direct Message to start a dialogue to get to know someone.
If you need to report a message that you believe to be in violation of our anonymity policy, you can tap-and-hold-down on a specific message to reveal an option for reporting that message. Our guide on Reporting Messages explains how that can be done in the app.
Please remember that posting multiple flagged messages may result in a temporary suspension from Open. Suspensions happen based on the total number of messages that have been flagged from your account. If you believe that your message has been flagged in error, please be sure to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
