    It's time for us to remind the members, once more, that personal insults are still against the rules. This has not changed and we have seen an increase in these kind of posts over the last few weeks. Keep in mind that this can result in warnings, infractions, or even being barred from the forum for a period of time. While the rules for insulting groups or certain people such as politicians were lessened this does not extend to those of a personal nature.

    In other words you may say group x are retards or politician x is an ass but you can't say member x is one.

    Calling out other members in threads or posts is also still against the rules. Doesn't mean you can't question them or respond to their post but you can't make insulting comments in posts which refer to them.

    The other thing we need to touch on here is the use of certain curse words. Several four letter words are OK but the eff word, even with symbols in the place of letter is not permissible. We might overlook "eff" but not the word with a f as the first letter followed by symbols. We also don't allow a word such as mother used with the preceding word I wrote about nor do we allow God's name to be taken in vain. This is highly offensive to many of our posters and it is not needed to make a point.


    Please keep this in mind and

    Happy posting!!

    The next member who tells another member to "take off the kneepads" or anything along those lines is going to get three days off from the site no questions asked. I am tired of cleaning up crappy statements like these which are a direct violation of board policies. So if you post it and I see it don't complain because you have been forewarned.
