Terms of Service and Community Guidelines

Below is a listing of the forum rules. We will assume you have read these rules prior to posting any messages. Enforcement, interpretation, and the consequences for violating these rules is at the discretion of the forum moderators and the Reeve Foundation administrators.

No spamming. Period. This includes posting identical and irrelevant messages repeatedly on the same or multiple topic areas. Spam also includes posting content within messages or signatures that contain promotional or advertising statements and/or links to other sites.

Personal attacks are prohibited. This includes discriminatory remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; posts which discuss or illustrate illegal activity; providing links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned. It also includes bickering and name calling. Translation: Play nice!

Content and images that are pornographic, obscene, or indecent are prohibited. This includes posting topics pertaining to illicit sexual content.

Avoid using profanity (so don’t even $#%&@ think about it). Using partial masking (such as asterisks or punctuation marks) to bypass the profanity filter is prohibited and will result in the same action as if the actual word had been typed. Finally, the profanity filter is not considered to be the final authority on what's acceptable and what isn't. Just because a word isn't caught by the filter doesn't mean it's appropriate. A good rule of thumb is that if you wouldn't see it on the Reeve Foundation website then it doesn't belong here.

No bumping or cross-posting. Bumping posts in order to keep them near the top of the list is prohibited. Posts of this nature are not conducive to community spirit and are unwelcome. If you feel that the post has not been adequately answered then just say so. The same goes for cross-posting which is posting the same topic across multiple forums. Please limit your post to one forum.

Posting links to articles from other sites is great. However, please do not copy and paste the entire content of those articles directly into a post since this most likely violates copyright and consent laws.

Got a problem with a post and/or topic? Click the “Report!” link at the top right corner of the message. This automatically notifies all mods about your concern.

Please do not personal information. For your own protection and the privacy of other members, do not give out information such as phone numbers and addresses.
