1.Swearing and offensive language. Yes, we all let of steam sometimes, we are all human beings but I believe that really bad swearing should be edited out, not really out of rules but our of decency towards other members.
2.Off topic. The trouble is that although its ok to go off topic and I am as guilty as everyone else, we do have to work extra hard to remove the postings later because otherwise when new members go to read threads, they don't make a lot of sense. Not a hard and fast rule here but we would ask members to try, and also to understand that if their postings are removed then it is simply to put subjects back on topic again. Please try and help us by keeping on topic, and if you notice a thread going badly off topic, which annoys you, please let us know.
3.Any advertising of your reviews or anyone elses reviews is a no go. The reason for this is that it almost begs for reads, and also can cause unpleasantness between members, for example if you draw members attention to what you think is a revenge rating for example. People look. People join in the argument, and that is not the purpose of the forum, and goes against everything we stand for. Same if you see a dire review on a site, rate it and move on. It is not up for discussion here.
4.Direct insult aimed at any person is also a no go. This will be removed. By all means discuss issues, though not individuals.
5.Naming is a no go, and here we will moderate. (this includes hinting or pointing to other sites that could confirm the identity of another party).
Now this really is easy for everyone to understand. NAMES OF MEMBERS in a context which could be interpreted by ANY member as talking about (rather than to) a member is not permitted and will be edited.
6.Using your ciao/dooyoo name is an accepted practice on this site
These make pretty clear reading, and on top of these, the forum is a no naming forum, and members that make perpetual mention of other members will be warned and then excluded from the forum.
Let's be pleasant and make the forum experience enjoyable for all, and please keep personal digs at one another off the board, because they will be removed. If people cannot sort out their own disputes between themselves in an adult manner, that is their choice, but not on the forum, as it makes the experience extremely unpleasant for other members.
