REMLR.COM FORUM RULES

Breaking rules result in punishments. There are several types of punishments:

1.   Warning – An Administrator or Moderator will determine whether you knew what you were doing was wrong or whether a warning is necessary to explain it to you. The Administrator does not have to give a warning and may issue an immediate Temporary or Permanent Ban.

2.   Temporary Ban - This is where your forum account is temporarily suspended for one month by the Administrator.  A Moderator may recommend a Temporary Ban.

3.   Permanent Ban - This is where your forum account is permanently suspended by the Administrator.  A Moderator may recommend a Permanent Ban.

The following rules list the most serious violations:

1.   No Hacking - This should go without saying, but you are not permitted to hack the forum. Guessing someone else's password and succeeding counts as hacking.

Penalty - Members who hack will be permanently banned without warning.

2.   No Spamming - Spamming is not allowed, and is defined as a post or multiple posts that contains advertising, political or discriminatory meaning.

Penalty - Members who spam will be permanently banned without warning.

3.   No Discrimination - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or whether they are gay or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the category your insult. REMLR.COM is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!

Penalty - Members who discriminate will be permanently banned without warning.

4.   No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the forum.

Penalty - Members who bully will be banned for a month on the first offence, and permanently banned on the second offence without warning.

5.   No Flaming - Flaming harms the nice atmosphere of REMLR.COM. It also causes thread's to go off topic, and most importantly, it hurts the person being flamed. The victim may defend themselves against any accusations made to them, but may not make any additional accusations to the flamer (which also counts as flaming). 

Penalty - Members who flame will be temporarily banned for one month. A second offence will result in a permanent ban without warning.

6.   No Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on REMLR.COM. A censor system is in place as a backup. If you see words in your post being replaced with ****, you have done something wrong. Please edit your post and tone it down. To edit a post, click the "modify" button at the top right of your post. 
Cheating the censor system is against the rules.
