“House Rules”

  4. Your posting should be related to the relevant topics of the conversation thread.
  5. All sexual, racist, discriminatory or other content that is offensive to any potential reader in any way will not be considered acceptable. A post must not discuss or in any way promote illegal activities.
  6. It is not acceptable to engage in criticism or to be offensive towards another poster or individual.
  7. The forum site will not endorse or accept any comments that could be libellous or defamatory. Please note that even when a name is not disclosed it will be considered unacceptable if an individual or individuals can be identified.
