Post by Berlie » Mon Oct 25, 2004 9:32 am

The following type of postings are not allowed in any forum. This is not an all inclusive list and moderators have the right to remove any post they feel is not appropriate.

1. Posts/poems that promote hatred and violence.
2. Posts/poems that use racial slurs or derogatory sexual statements.
3. Posts/poems that threaten violence against someone known or not known.
4. Posts/poems that bash, slam, flame, etc another member of the forums unless it is done in obvious good humor and no harm is intended.
5. Posts/poems that could be considered pornography that explicitly detail a sexual act.
6. Posts/poems about inflicting harm on others.

If you make a post that do any of the above, your post/poem may be removed with or without notice. If you continue to make posts that break these rules after you have been warned you may find yourself banned from these forums.
