Posts, profiles and usernames may be moderated without warning. Members are responsible to learn and follow all rules and instructions on your own.

Upon registering, you agree and commit to be subject to all Rules, Terms, Policies, and Disclaimer, including all administrative and moderator decisions and instructions, which are not up for discussion or debate.

If you find that you do not want these terms, you agree to quietly move on to websites more to your preference and not disrupt this community.

Infractions & Suspensions:
Infractions are private communications that no one else can see, from Admin or Moderators to members.

Infractions are not for debate.

A suspension may be given without warning at any time to stop misuse of the website.

There is no obligation to give a warning before an infraction or suspension.

Breaking any rule can result in either a no-point warning or accruing points that can result in your membership being rendered Inactive.

Good posts do not negate disallowed posts. A suspension may be appealed, but there is no obligation to release it.

Only moderators are to provide board use instructions and decisions in order to keep instructions as uniform as possible.

Do not act as a Moderator or Facilitator, to tell members if, what or where to post.

Doing so is considered to be incorrect assumption of authority over other members.

Either ignores or else reports the post so that correct instruction may be given.

If a post seems inappropriate click "Notify".

Do not post defensively or reactively to abusive or problem posts, thereby creating more work for moderators to remove inappropriate posts.

Do not report posts just because you disagree with the opinion.

Do not debate or argue member opinions.

Do not engage in side discussion on other member's topics.

Posts become the property of this website to be edited, moved or deleted as deemed to best serve the community.

Please use the closest appropriate board topic. Save a copy of your own posts that you wish to keep.

Off-board contact
Do not post or blog to request or offer any kind of contact for any reason.

This attracts spammers and will be treated like advertising.

Private Messaging (PM) is available only to long term members.

PM is not available to Newbies.

Do not discuss PM on the boards for any reason.

When PM is not available or is OFF, respect this and do not post about it.

If the member PM is ON you may PM the member one time to see if your PM is accepted by the member. If so, then PM the member again to request permission before sending any product or service information.

Otherwise the member may report your message as spam and your membership will be terminated.

Use Common Sense, Respect Privacy, Be Safe, and Do Not Post Personal Information
Do not post details of court cases.

Posting or revealing identifying details about a legal case can be used against you in a court of law.

Respect others' privacy when they are Inactive.

When or if they want to return is soon enough to reconnect.

Do not post your own or other people's identifying info or real names.

If you are under age 17, do not post your age. Post that you are a teen.

Please be safe: keep personal information private and remind your children to do so, too.

When a reader sees your names and location, it is not hard at all to discover where you live from information on local public records.

Remember that posts are picked up by search engines and may circulate on the World Wide Internet for years to be read by anyone in the world.

Be Bold To Post
If you're new to our community, taking the step for the first time to post publicly to a message board can sometimes seem intimidating.
