I don't like rules, but I guess we need some. Please note these rules are enforced with a high level of tolerance. Evil or Very Mad

1. Don't be needlessly mean to anyone. I know some people deserve it, but it just leads to trouble.

2. I will delete your membership here if I think you are a spammer or a troll...or if you annoy me. Should the need or thought to ban anyone arise it will be done by polling the members who got in on the ground floor.

3. I reserve the right to change the rules when I want to.

4. Don't waste time badmouthing other sites and people at those sites. This a place for like minded or perhaps simpleminded people to exchange thoughts, not to criticize other people or places.

5. No porn please. There are plenty of places to go for that, so no hardcore stuff please.

6. Rule 4, section 2-a, sub paragraph E-14: No one may post if they are known to have a stick up their ass thatís bigger then the babe ruth bat outside Yankee Stadium:

95. Use this smiley lol! and you may find yourself in violation of rule 4, section 2-a, sub paragraph E-14.

Given the tightening of rules at various places on the internet, I have decide to add to our already impressive, or is it oppressive, collection of rules. Please note the previously listed rules may still apply. If there is a conflict between old and new, the rule that will be applied will be decided by a coin toss or my mood of the day.

The Suggestions:

# We discourage posts that are positive, constructive, and on topic. We may delete individual posts that could ruin a good topic or thread by being preachy, too self righteous, offer people false hope, or are optimistic in any way shape or form. You want hope, go somewhere else.

# We reserve the right to remove any topics we deem to be encouraging to people that we think are ass hats. Some folks need and deserve a good flaming beat down now and again. Please note that, from time to time, topics may be removed for being inappropriate even though your individual post in that topic may have been perfectly fine. Please note this reflects badly on you. A thread is only as good as its weakest link.

# Having fun is good, we like fun, and fun is often best when it comes at someone else's expense. I mean lets be honest, you seem some business man slip and fall on the ice and ruin his fancy suit...how fucking funny is that? We do not censor opinions or ideas on our forums, unless I don't happen to like them. This isn't a god damn democracy.

# You may not make personal attacks on other users that I respect. Any other assholes are fair game.

# We reserve the right to ban any member who irritates those in power. Usually such dismissals will be with no warning and have little relationship to fairness or justice.

# If you have an issue concerning our services, policies, or staff, please write your complaints on the back of a $20 or higher denomination bill and contact me for mailing address. I can almost guarantee your complaints will be ignored, but your contribution may garner some favor in the future, probably at someone else's expense.

The Rules

1. Profanity is allowed, and when used artfully, appreciated.

2. There will from time to time be racial, ethnic, gender based insults and personal discrimination. This ain't a 70's sitcom, it is real life. Deal with it or move on. People are assholes some times and you or I can't change that. I sincerely hope this isn't news to you.

3. There will also be posts meant to offend or hurt another member, and sometimes they will be really mean. I don't like these kinds of things, but hey, it happens.

4. Pornography, if of good quality, will be tolerated, but really, do we need another site that includes porn. You can't fall down here on the internets without banging your head on some pictures of nude chicks. If you must, please just put it in the right section so no one loses their damn job.

5. Users should always argue a moderators decision publicly. The moderator can be a dick at times, and unless you let him know, he'll probably be lulled into thinking he is proficient. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first be presented in an open forum where the moderator is addressed in a profanity laced tirade that will attract as much attention as possible. If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin, who is the same guy as the moderator, so it is pretty unlikely he'll side with you. Bottom line...your fucked.

6. Pictures may be posted as long as they are not showing people who are unpleasant to look at, unless said pictures are funny.

7. Signatures may contain what ever you want them to contain, unless I don't like it, at which point I will delete it with no warning. This may also occur if I had a bad day.

8. Advertising,commercial-related or competing products are all forbidden in any relation to your account. The exception is within the advertising area and if the moderator/administrator is given a free what ever it is you are selling. Sending enough to share with my henchmen will score more favorable treatment.

9. Please keep foul language to a minimum, unless you just don't want to. I couldn't care less. This isn't a fucking church supper. Do what you want.

10. Remember to post in the correct forum, or don't. If you continue to post in the wrong forum, it is unlikely anyone will notice.

11. If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please just keep it to yourself. No one likes a snitch.

12. Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, would probably be pretty funny, so go ahead if you'd like.

13. If you have a question about where your topic went, you probably have too much time on your hands. I mean it is a damn internet post. Who cares where it went. We aren't writing literary classics here. If your post is so damn profound, you should probably be posting it elsewhere. Just don't bug me about it. If I deleted it, I probably don't want to discuss it with you.

14. You may have one username on the board at any one time, unless you'd prefer to have more then one...in which case, you should have several. Conversations between any one person's various identities are encouraged, as they would probably be fairly entertaining.

15. Okay...that is about it. Anything else, just wing it.
