Acceptable vs Unacceptable Forum posting
« on: Nov 04, 02, 04:39:32 AM »
The forum has been a very busy place during it's first few years. While we respect someone's right to free speech, the forum was setup to help the community be a better place.
 
We've made some tuff decisions on what is acceptable and what is not. We have the right to remove objectionable content.

When a post accuses someone with specific details - it is not acceptable. 
 
Such as:
- naming a specific company or individual by name. Accusing them of speeding or reckless driving or other wrong doing.
 
- Listing someone's license plate number and accusing them of this or that. Posting someone's address, phone number, PO box or other similar specific details. It's not always an individual post that becomes an attack but sometimes a combination of posts.

- Material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of ANY law.

 
Yes photos have been posted of people passing over a double yellow lines, that had a license plate numbers showing. We feel it portrays an event that took place and isn't an accusation.
 
All forum members have accepted the following Forum agreement before completion of their membership:

-------------- The Forum Agreement ---------------
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, 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. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. 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. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. 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. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

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

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

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.

Also note that 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. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.

If you are the type of person that likes to get into deep controversial topics or discussions such as war vs anti war, religion, politics, abortion, etc. then this is not the right place for you. There are plenty of other spots out there where a person can say anything they want and is encouraged.

Now that the election is over this forum will return to it's normal policy of providing content primarily focused on community and  surrounding areas. Highly controversial topics will be removed without notice.

Thank you,

Wrightwood Forum Etiquette and Behavior Guide

D. No Trolling.
What is a troll? It's a person who posts something which is bound to stir people up and then sits back and watches as dozens of people jump in and start arguing. Sometimes trolls get their friends to join in or post under different names. Generally they will do anything it takes to get attention. If you see a message like this, please try and refrain from replying to it - it may well be deleted anyway.
