RULES GOVERNING THE ENTIRE SITE – BOTH DATING AND FORUMS
(The following rules apply everywhere, where they may be applicable)

You must be 18 or older to use this site.
One account per person.
No SPAM or solicitation of any sort, for services rendered, or services asked for, nor goods for sale or wanted. This includes attention seeking threads (e.g. “I’m looking for …” where the main thrust of the thread is to have people look at you and contact you – Your dating site profile and email are for that purpose)
No posting of any illegal activities or how to procure any services or goods through illegal means.
No pornographic, obscene, disturbing images posted to this site or links directing to such images.
No profanity or offensive terms in any user created material to this site (profiles, alias, postings, pictures).
For your safety – Absolutely, do not post any personal contact information that will directly lead someone to make off site contact with you.
Follow the same image rules as for the dating site. Either a clear visible picture of you or no picture – nothing else..
No impersonating or libeling anyone – Period.
Do not post real names, user alias, or profile ID’s in any posting other than to address a poster by alias in replies to postings or to report a user in the Forum Violation thread.
Do not harass, stalk, or spoof anyone or your account will be deleted and legal action taken if the harassment falls under your local criminal laws. The site will provide all information to the local authorities if asked – fair warning.
CIVILITY: No Insults or baiting others into an exchange of insults. Condescension, derision, rudeness will not be tolerated and neither will personal libelous/defamatory characterizations – period. This forum was designed as a place to exchange and promote intelligent conversation, not as your personal medium to entice people into a meaningless exchange of hatred against one another. If this is your intent, then you will lose your privileges to participate.Important One discusses the subject matter, not the poster’s character.
No Trolling – posting controversial comments/replies that will knowingly cause a forum disruption or an exchange of insults.
No gender, race, creed, sexual orientation bashing of any sorts, nor any threads that generalize inane gender observations that will cause a forum disruption.
No forum protests or rants of any sort – If your thread is closed or deleted, do not start another one as the answer will be final or obvious if the thread is deleted. If you have a gripe about how the site is run, see below for the only avenue to convey your issues or concerns
