By posting in this section you have automatically agreed to the rules, no second chances if the rules are violated.

For those who may have missed it, here are the General Rules;

Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.

The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to report the objectionable material. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually suggestive, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise a violation of any law.

You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you, by this bulletin board, or written permission is given by the copyright holder. Plagiarism will not be tolerated, please give credit to the author if another person’s material is used.

In addition there is to be no advertising of commercial sites on the message board unless authorized by a moderator. If you wish to advertise here please contact the forum administrator.
No promoting of other competing sites either in the forum, chat room or private message system. In the event of receiving such spam messages, please report the incident to a member of the moderating team.

The admins and moderators have final say. They reserve the right to suspend your membership if you are suspected to be in violation of these rules.

Since it has long been our goal to be the "Friendliest Fish Forum Around," we insist that our members treat each other with respect and courtesy. In order to do that, we enforce our rules against trolling and flaming on our boards. These are the definitions we use in making that determination:

Flaming means posting, emailing or PMing an angry, rude, hostile, or mean-spirited comment to any member or group of members. It also means to speak incessantly and/or rabidly on some relatively uninteresting subject, whether or not it is related to the original subject of the thread or with a patently ridiculous attitude.

Trolling means making a post designed to attract predictable responses or 'flames.' They are often made for no other purpose than to annoy someone or disrupt a discussion although they might be cleverly disguised as serious comments.
