1. Don't break the law.

2. Don't be a douche.

3. Don't judge a thread by its title.

4. Don't take anything too seriously.

To elaborate slightly, Forumotion.com, who is now kindly hosting us at absolutely no charge, provides the following guidelines for what they do NOT allow. I don't think this will be a problem for us, but let's be nice to our new hosts anyway.

  • Sexual and/or pornographic content
  • Hateful or abusive content
  • Defamatory content and / or affecting the integrity of a person
  • Sale or exchange of medication that requires a prescription from a licensed practitioner, or medicines without prescription / drugs and any other illicit substance
  • Copyright infringment / hacking
  • Spam / phishing and/ or malware website
  • Credit card fraud

Welcome home, everyone. Very Happy

UPDATES:
Rule #3 has been added on request.
Rule #4 has been added for the benefit of new members who might not be familiar with our tongue-in-cheek posting culture. Smile

Credit card fruad? Very specific! If they have that down you would think that they would have every crime known to man down! Very Happy

OMG did I just make a one-smiley post? Does that count as posting just to increase my post count?

More importantly, why should anyone care? Very Happy

I think it might Wink . On the other hand bashing Corporate Right Wingers might be somehow "missed" by the Moderators (as long as it's not vulgar or calling for murder).

'Breathe the free air again!'

Good rules. Nothing about no buckie drinking, drunken rambling, being crabbit, or holding PJ and the Coven responsible for all that is dark and evil in life. Suits me. Very Happy

I was just saying to Primmy and Bella, "Dears, I can't imagine all those loose minded (Refugee) Forumites controlling their urge to make enuendos, doubtle entendres or suggestive remarks.

Primmy said, "Oh dear Buffin - you look so tense, maybe you need a massage."

Bella piped in and said, "Shall I get the body lotions?"

Lovely girls --- very kind hearted -- and pure ---- I mean it --- pure!

(You know, now that they're both in the "family way" they have been even more easy to get along with! Mmmm --- does anyone know the gestation period of hobbits, as I seem to have forgotten ---??)

I'm not sure if this is the place for it or not, but I wish to report the happy news. Bella had a girl, "Shady" and Primmy a boy, "Sunny." We are all so happy! Wisey and Porgy are planning to have twins, not immediately, down the track. Happy News or what! The Bankses are Multyiplying. No one could be unhappy with that! Very Happy

I have added a fourth rule - don't take anything too seriously - for the benefit of any new members who might not be familiar with our tongue-in-cheek posting culture. Remember this rule especially when people seem to be being rude to each other - past history suggests that they're probably being silly. Very Happy Wink

Oh my.

I don't mind rules however stringent. I just think if you treat others like your dearest and favorite Nan you can't go wrong with whatever you say.

My Nan was a buckie swilling, chain smoking, part-time racist (part time because she thought she wasn't -'I don't think blacks should be treated any different from anyone else. They just shouldn't be allowed to marry white people.') So not sure leelee your advice would work for me! Very Happy

What'd she think about blacks marrying Scots? ( Given such folk along with the Welsh & Irish weren't considered white until fairly recently.) Razz
