Rules (DON‘Ts):


1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence.  Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.


3. No use of explicit, obscene or vulgar language or images and/or messages, including racist remarks. 



4. No posts that attack, insult, “flame”, defame, or abuse members or non-members.   Respect other members of the community and don’t belittle, make fun off, or insult another member or non-member.


5. No advertising or links to advertising or “Spam” is permitted (including signatures).
  • Advertising or Spam is defined as posting a link for the purpose of selling, soliciting or promoting by someone that has ownership or other “vested interest” to the web site involved, including efforts to promote other online forums or web sites by web site owners.
  • Posts and links about fundraising (including nonprofit fundraisers) are NOT permitted.
  • Only links to personal home pages are allowed in signatures and member profiles.
  • Links to helpful web sites (commercial or otherwise) are allowed when they are posted by someone without any “vestedinterest” AND whose purpose is NOT to solicit, advertise, promote, fundraise, etc.


6. No use of multiple usernames. Please register and use only one username for the forums.  Posting under multiple user accounts will result in administrative action (ie. banning).


7. Do not disrespect moderators.  Be respectful in public chat and any private communications with moderators.  Moderators are volunteers that donate many, many hours of their own time to help in the forums and chat rooms.  Violations of this rule will not be tolerated.



8. No SHOUTING.  Remember, using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in posts is considered yelling and rude, plus it is difficult to read.
