I am adding this simply so I can link to it from the primary rules thread. Will allow me to post more specific rules if needed without cluttering the forum.
Ok folks I have reached my official limit. We have rules on this site that are very basic and simple to follow. I am done dealing with childish and immature kids and adults.
So from here on out you threaten a staff member, forum member or the site in any form you are gone. I will ask no question and I will issue no warning. No member and no staff member should ever have to deal with an email I just received. If you violate a rule and you get an infraction, warning or ban deal with and shut up.
The site staff are volunteers who take their time to attempt at making this a great site and community. As such they do not get paid by you nor anyone else. They do the job because they want to. So unless you wish to start sending them a pay check I do not want to hear one single complaint. If you have an issue with a staff member you are to address that issue with me not them.
This site is to be a family friendly site and a site where anyone can ask any question that is legit and receive the assistance they need without fear of someone talking smack. If you see a question asked and can not contribute then do not post. If I see any member giving a noob a hard time for asking what they deem a dumb question you get a 30 day time out. You will not get a warning. You talk back or talk smack to my staff that ban become permanent. I will no longer tolerate superior attitude towards any member for any reason.
Cursing will be dealt with via censors. You go around my censors you will get a 3 day time out. Don't like it to bad. Deal with it. This excludes the Underground.
I have the ability to view IP addresses and I have the ability to ban IP addresses and I will do that if I have to.
Remember posting on this site is a privileged not a god given right. Do not throw freedom of speech at me. Sorry but that only applies to dealings with the government. It does not apply to private entities such as this site. When you signed up you agreed to the rules whether you read them or not. Don't like the rules then leave. Bottom line it's my house, my rules and I have the right to throw you out. So until IB removed me as admin deal with it.
