Forum Rules
1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promote in the forums
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisement for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums etc.
Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.
DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers
Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.
2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.
3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures. Use common sense while posting.
4. Do not cross post questions
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.
5. Do not PM users asking for help
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
6. Remain respectful of other members at all times
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective.
However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.

General Posting Guidelines
We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they substantiate what they post because of the way they posted the issue or question. Here are some general guidelines.
1. Please stick to the subject
There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique information that most has been addressed., please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.
2. Be DESCRIPTIVE and Don’t use “stupid” topic names
PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your topic or reply IN THE SUBJECT.  (Don’t use attention getting subjects, they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :
Help me,  Hello,  Very urgent,
Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of a way to post a question
“how should we respond to inaccurate information and how to counteract it. ”
“where is the point of need to protect the constitution”
Remember when people respond to you, they are doing us a favor in identifying points of concern
Be patient,and considerate with people who disagree.  Hear them out by posting good descriptions of what you understand, and not snapping at people with garbage such as
“if you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
General Forum Questions

What happens if I break a rule?
If you break a rule, then you will either be warned or banned. A ban of your user account may either be temporary or permanent. The administrators and moderators also have the right to edit, delete, move or close any thread or post as they see necessary, without prior warning.
What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the moderators or admin.
