This site is filled with people of all ages and all walks of life- don’t expect everyone to agree with your point of view. Arguing in the hopes of making such happen is pointless. While we expect there to be disagreements, and encourage different points of view; Please debate in a mature, intellectual manner. Slanderous remarks, personal attacks and flaming are not tolerated.
We reserve the right to:
-Ban members. This is the most severe punishment. This is also your last straw. You are welcome to email Admin and explain yourself. We are not obligated to respond, or un-ban you. This is just merely a chance for you to apologize.
Violators will be issued a formal warning for violating any of these rules- But, we are not required to do so.
If the violation is extreme enough in severity, immediate action will be taken without warning.
Do not argue with any decision made by Admin; We are here for a reason. These are our rules and they have been implemented for a reason.
We want you to make friends and learn new things here. Witty banter and mild horseplay is encouraged to keep it fun and lighthearted. Just don’t get out of hand.
Most importantly, be involved and have fun.
In the event that you see or are a victim of a forum rule infraction, please do the following:
Notify an ADMIN with a copy of the PM or thread correspondence (or link).
Refrain from responding to the violator; you risk putting yourself and your membership in jeopardy as well. Also, keep the encounter out of other threads.
Trust the matter will be dealt with accordingly by Administration rather than trying to take it into your own hands.
Please be advised that these rules are subject to change at ANYTIME.
I may have missed a few things- but Admin is entitled to enforce other rules as necessary.
I advise you to take these rules seriously.
