We invite and encourage a healthy exchange of opinions; disagreements are okay. If you disagree with a member's post or opinion, by all means, challenge the opinion. However, any challenge must be given with a sense of respect and caring for the other person. The real objective of community is to understand each other, not to attack others and convince them that you're right. Name-calling, insults, "flaming" and attacks are not appropriate and will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree respectfully.

Because this is so important, we'll say it again: Don't attack others. Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated.

Harassing, offensive, vulgar, abusive, hateful or bashing communications -- especially those aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious views, national origin, or disability -- will not be permitted. BEFORE you post a message that is intended to embarrass, humiliate or harass another person or group of people, stop and THINK first! Harassing communications are considered to be those that may cause distress, embarrassment, unwanted attention or other discomfort. It will not be tolerated!

The main forums of are a place where explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics, X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or other graphic files is NOT appropriate. This includes picture and graphic files in signatures or avatars. Posts in all forums (except “The Lounge“) that contain any of these will not be tolerated and will be moved or deleted without notice! (See "The Lounge Rules")

Post-whoring will not be allowed in the general forums. It is ok to do so in The Lounge but not excessively. Anyone postwhoring out of The Lounge will have their post moved to The Lounge or deleted. This is a fairly loose rule because sometimes the topic can sometimes stray quickly, just keep it cool.

The "The Lounge" forum is a "members only" forum which cannot be viewed by anyone except for a member who has logged-in with his or her User Name and Password. The Lounge was created for members to use as they see fit, within the guidelines of proper respect to fellow members, to enjoy themselves in a semi-private environment. The rules for The Lounge in reference to PG-13 type pictures (images) are that only tasteful modeling or posing type pictures be displayed. No nudity/raunchy/disgusting/action pictures are allowed in The Lounge. If you are posting a picture or link to something that may be questionable, put “Mild Work Warning” in the thread title. For example, if you are posting a picture of someone in less cloths then you would wear to work, put the warning in the title or if its something you wouldn’t want your boss/child/wife/husband/etc to see then in most cases neither do other members so put the warning in the thread title. If you do not warn members about a post that should have a warning you will be warned. Again, no nudity/raunchy/disgusting/action pictures in The Lounge. The topics, language and pictures in The Lounge may be offensive to some people. We therefore have a "Warning" displayed in the forum's description text advising of this possibility. It is important for all members to understand the possibility that opening any posted message or reply in The Lounge forum may display potentially offensive and/or embarrassing images. suggests that the The Lounge forum not be viewed in public!

Anyone entering the forum consider this your work warning. This is NOT a PORN forum! It is simply a section seperate from "The Lounge" to post pictures, content, and anything else generally not considered work or school friendly. Access of the Work Warning forum is for members over the age of 18. If you are not over 18 years of age please do not view these forums. By clicking and entering into threads located in the 18+ adult section you are agreeing that you and anyone you are allowing access to the section is indeed 18 years of age or older. Do not post any raunchy/disgusting/action pictures. Doing so will get your post deleted and you will be warned. We highly suggest the Work Warning forum not be viewed in public!

In addition, reserves the right to organize message boards (or folders) in order to best serve the majority of our members. For example, narrow-interest or minimal activity topics may, at's discretion, be relocated to a more appropriate forum, or deleted entirely. also reserves the right to prohibit or delete messages that are thought to violate applicable law or that may be harmful to other members, or the rights of or others.
