[2.3] Name calling or harrassment of any kind directed towards another member or members will not be tolerated.
[2.4] Messages posted with vulgarity, explicit sexual reference, or obscene images will be deleted and a warning issued. We do have a language filter in place but there will always be words missing from the filter so be careful. Links or references to mature content sites will be removed. Help keep our forum clean, and a cut above the rest.
[2.5] Discussions related to pirated software, links to warez sites, or posts related to sharing or stealing software will be removed. A no tolerance policy is in effect.
[2.6] Negative, or disrespectful comments directed towards the Administrators or Moderators of the forums will not be tolerated. Members who wish to take this approach will be warned and your account may be suspended.
[2.7] Users may not argue with a moderators decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via PM. If the problem cannot be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their position to the forum administrator. The forum administrator will make their decision and it will be final.
[2.8] If you feel any post violates any of these rules then please use the 'Report' button next to the post in question and a moderator will take a look at it and act appropriately.
[2.9] If you notice a topic that is posted in the wrong forum then again please use the 'Report' button to report it and a moderator will move it to the appropriate place.

[5.2] Comments which are derogatory in nature will not be tolerated.
[5.3] If you have a question, suggestion, comment or request please use the Support/Suggestion form (link is at the top of the forums). If you would like to discuss it privately, please use the private mesage system to contact the site administrator, or any of the moderators.
[5.4] Respect other peoples opinions, even though you may not agree. Everyone is entitled to their say, but please do so in a courteous manner. It's easy to flame someone if you disagree, but remember, that type of behaviour is strictly prohibited. We come from different locations, we are a mix of ages, and our backgrounds vary. Take that into consideration before you click the post button. A moment of thought is better than hours of grief. The general rule of thumb is to treat others as you would like to be treated.
[5.5] There will be no racial, ethnic or gender based insults on this forum.
[5.6] When typing messages, please try to consider those who will be reading your words. ALL posts should be made in plain English as it is easier to read than so called txt speak. Most people struggle to decipher txt msg words and sentences, even where English is their first language. Posts made using txt speak will be deleted.
