In The 00s, System Rules

If you don't want to read, may I recommend watching this short instructional video.

1) No Spaming

Spam is defined as flooding, advertisements, chain letters, and pyramid schemes. These are forbidden on this forum. This includes posting the same thing repeatedly.

2) Don't be a jerk

You agree through your use of this forum that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, racist, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. Intentionally bypassing the profanity filters via spaces, misspellings, phonetics, ASCII, etc. isn't allowed.

3) But Clinton....

Don't bring up mistakes others have made to explain your own misdeeds. The moderators can't read every message. Just because you saw someone else post something that violates the system guidelines, it doesn't mean you can too.

4) Your opinions are your own

You are responsible for the content of your posted messages. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries.

5) The owners reserve the right to remove any/all information posted

The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content within a reasonable time frame if they determine that removal is necessary. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. This policy applies to messages, member profile information, etc.

6) Views expressed do not necessarily reflect the owners

The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. We do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented.

7) Your right to privacy ends if you violate the law

The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

8) Eight, eight... I forget what eight was for.

9) Your password and account are YOUR responsibility

You agree to never give your password out to anyone, not even an administrator. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

10) You consent to having your IP address recorded

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement. Use of an anonymous proxy service is not allowed.

11) We use cookies to track users

The software places a cookie (a text file containing bits of information such as your username and password) in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. This cookie is used for no other purpose.

12) No exceptions to these rules will be allowed without prior approval from the moderators. Moderators/editors/admins are not exempt from any system rules.

If you violate any guidelines, you may be banned at the discretion of the system owner. You will get one written warning, after that the next offense results in a ban. Bans are PERMANENT!
