ForumGarden General Rules
1.General Posting Rules:
1.0 Be Civil.
If there was just one rule, this would be it. ForumGarden is not here to be your personal battlefield. The Golden Rule applies. People who embark on personal attacks or are unable to comment on the CONTENT but instead go after the poster are not welcome. ForumGarden is a place where friends gather. If you are unable to cope with a friendly and supportive atmosphere, then please leave. Friendliness counts and it will determine whether or not you have an account here. Draconian rules? If you are a non-civil trouble-maker, I'm sure you'll think so! For all other friends, welcome!
(See 1.0) 1.1 No "Flaming": Please do not post any messages that harrass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest.
(See 1.0) 1.2 No "Trolling": Please do not post any topic that disrupts the peace and harmony of this board. Don't create threads with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. This includes messages in profiles and signatures and the creation of duplicate accounts.
(See 1.0) 1.3 No "Spamming": Please do not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. You will not post for the sake of increasing your post count.

A note on FREE SPEECH:

The First Amendment is greatly respected here at ForumGarden. However, ForumGarden is private property and we request that members adhere to all forum policies. It is a contract agreed to by all who become members of ForumGarden. Those who break forum rules cannot invoke censorship or freedom of speech - a contract broken is a contract broken. If you do not like the rules of conduct or the acceptable topics, seek out a new venue to frequent or start your own board.
If you feel you can abide by these requests, we hope that you join us at ForumGarden.com.
