You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.

As a member of our Community, we request that you abide by the standards as given in this agreement. These Standards  apply to all areas of this site and all services offered to users as part of their membership. Users who violate the terms of our Standards may have their use of the site services interrupted, suspended or terminated without notice.

This site is a privately owned community/chat service, and not a public chat network. Your right to speak freely here must be exercised with courtesy and self-restraint. When you enter this site, it is the same as entering any real privately owned facility, like a conference room, theater, restaurant, or shopping mall. The manners and laws of real life apply, and we have the right to remove you if you violate the standards listed here.

When you enter the forum, or other facility in site, it constitutes your acceptance of all Terms, Conditions, Standards, and Policies published on our site. If you do not agree to abide by such, please do not enter this site or post on the site message boards.

We welcome all people age thirteen and over of any race, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation and point of view. We do not tolerate expressions of bigotry, hatred, harassment or abuse, nor will we tolerate threats of harm to anyone.

Because we encourage discussion and exchange of ideas, we do not allow threatening, defamatory, abusive, or illegal statements. For the same reason, we do not allow sexually explicit material in conversations, board topics or nicknames.

Impersonation of other members will be considered a form of harassment, and will not be tolerated
