Bulletin Board Policing

If a Member feels a certain Member Content violates the Rules, they should report the abuse/violation. A delegate of ("Moderator") will in turn respond to the individual reporting. If it is determined that the complained of content violates the Rules, it will be removed from the Bulletin Board as soon as possible.

Deleting a Message

The Bulletin Board is operated using a "hands off" policy for Member content. However, content that violates the Rules will be deleted or edited.

Member Content that violates the Rules may be deleted. Some of the reasons include, but are not limited to:

Abusive Content

Content that is unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, obscene, harmful, libelous, or invasive of the member's own or another's privacy is not allowed. A comment is potentially defamatory or libelous if it is stated as a fact instead of an opinion, if it is untrue and it causes harm to the person about whom the comment was made, Language that is racist, sexist, sexually explicit, defamatory or insulting is not allowed.

Suspending a Member

The Moderator will have the ability to remove or suspend a Member's posting privileges. Members receive infraction points for violating the rules. Once a specific number of infraction points is reached, the Moderator can then suspend their posting privileges temporarily or permanently, which means they are reduced to a "read-only" status for the Bulletin Board. The following criteria are set by the Moderator at the time of suspension:

A private message is sent to the user notifying them of their suspension. A default message is sent, but the Moderator has the ability to edit/personalize the message prior to sending. A message will be displayed when the suspended user attempts to submit Member Content to the Bulletin Board. If a member continuously violates our policies, they may be permanently banned from the Bulletin Board.
