Forum Terms & Rules

Unread post by ex-dv » 29 Sep 2008, 23:29

Core Posting Rules

By using this bulletin board you agree not to post any of the following:

1. Pornography, disgusting or gore content, or discussions or links to respective content or discussions. *
2. Content advocating genocide or willfully inciting hatred against an individual, group or organization.
3. Anything that violates or encourages the violation of local or international laws.
4. Credible threats or invasion of privacy of any member. **
5. Malicious impersonations of any member. ***
6. Spam

* Any child abuse depiction will be reported to the appropriate authorities along with the IP address of the poster.
** All threats received via board private message (PM) system are to be reported. Repeated threats despite warnings shall be sanctioned by removal of PM permissions. To petition for the permission reinstatement, a written and accepted apology to those who reported credible threats is required.
*** Some obvious, satirical impersonation, such as a similar poster name or posting style may be condoned. Using identical or close to identical avatar or signature as another user is not permitted. Any impersonation or speaking on behalf of the administrators, moderators, or site owners, whether for malicious purposes or not, is strictly prohibited.



Profiles and Topic Titles

Profiles and topic titles shall be free of personal attacks, profanities, slurs, and symbols or slogans of organized hate groups. Signatures should be no more than 5 lines of text size "Normal" in height (~3 cm) on a standard 1024 × 768 px display (12" Netbook) when viewed using the default forum style. No NSFW profile pictures.


Personal Information

Posting, reposting or quoting personal information (PI) of another member without permission is strictly forbidden. PI is the information which identifies the member in real life (IRL), including but not limited to their picture, address, work place, etc. It is the responsibility of the PI owner to request that this rule be enforced by reporting the offending posts. While we do our best to sanction the ofenders, this board is not monitored 24/7, so use discretion when posting PI on an open forum.


Nudity

Some playful or artful, non-sexual nudity may be tolerated at the moderators' discretion, but a general rule of thumb is no explicit nudity allowed; if you would like to share a non-pornographic nudity image, it is preferred that you post the link, not the image.


Member Disputes

If you must post arguments ad hominem, do your best to keep them in designated threads. If you wish to start a neutral topic, i.e. free of personal attacks, state the topic’s neutral status in the OP and use the neutral topic icon to inform others of the nature of your thread. Note that neutral topic cannot start with a personal attack. It is the responsibility of the topic starter to request that this rule is enforced by reporting the offending posts. A failure to respect moderators request to keep the attacks separate from the neutral topic may result in a temporary ban from the board. Limit one neutral topic per poster.

There is a discernible difference between satire and genuine malice towards others, including malicious attacks on this community and its moderators. The moderators reserve the right to remove or edit content they deem to be malicious in nature. Non-English content may be removed as well as excessive use of profanity.

Finally, repeatedly soliciting confrontation which, in moderators’ view, has no artistic or other redeeming value, will be sanctioned by removal of posting permissions.

Calling other members out in Topic Titles

Threads started with another member's name in the topic title,with the intent to flame will be removed.



Violations and Warnings

All posts are property of memeBee. Use caution when posting, as requests for deleting posts because you've changed your mind will not be honoured.

Users will be warned up to a maximum of three times for any or all offenses after which, if the need arises, a temporary ban of 1-90 days will be put in place. Permanent bans are the last resort and thought is given before implementing them. To petition the moderators for unbanning or to report any troubles logging in, contact us at dearmemebee@gmail.com. You must provide your IP as shown on https://www.ip-adress.com/ and your user name. If you wish to contact a specific moderator, please include their name in the subject line.

Rules are subject to change without notice. It is the responsibility of the forum member to check this page on a regular basis for any revisions in forum rules before making any posts to the forum. We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently refuse membership to anyone for any or no reason whatsoever.


Disclaimer and Privacy Policy

We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages expressed are solely the responsibility of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of memeBee or the membership of this bulletin board. We reserve the right to edit, reprint, distribute, or delete any posting for any reason and without prior notification or explanation to the author.

Neither the moderator team nor the administrators will release any personal or private information to a third party unless subpoenaed.


Acknowledgement

all publications have bias

all


this is a publication

it has a publisher (owner)

an editor-in-chief (admin)

and an editorial board (mods)


content is provided by

but not determined by the authors (posters)


and if the subscribers (also posters) do not like the direction of the publication

they are always free to end their subscription


that's all i've got for you


Unless you’ve studied what they have studied and had their experience, why would you expect to get it?
