I wanted to make a post to remind our users and visitors to the site about forum etiquette and behavior here at Simple Machines. While we try to keep an open mind and we try to keep things lighthearted we do need to keep things in line with the agreement everyone agrees to when signing up here and more specifically this section:
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International, Canadian, or United States Federal law.
Lately we've seen several post degrading the volunteers here and other users and this is unacceptable. As a result, we will be clamping down on more posts in order to keep the forums more friendly and on a more professional level with fewer personal attacks.
As a result, a few boards will be under discussion as to whether or not they will remain (News and Politics and Jokes for example).
As a general rule of thumb do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If you are typing up a response you feel is clever and spiteful, rethink your post.
If you have an issue over our moderation techniques, you are more than welcome to send a private message to myself or David.
