ON A PERSONAL NOTE: If I say something about a post being offensive, or remove a post, Im not dissing you personally, and it does not change my opinion of you as a person or a member of this board, I just feel that the post in question may offend someone and am trying to avoid confrontation and hostility, or my phone is being blown up with people who are offended by a post, picture, etc. So dont think I think any less of you because you have an opinion. I dont. I have mine, but I keep them to myself regarding certain topics, to be respectful of the other members, as Im asking everyone else to.
So lets be respectful of one another, but still have fun on the board and keep it interesting. If something is offensive to you dont hesitate to contact me IMMEDIATELY, or if you have questiona about something youre wanting to post, feel free to contact me before you post and we can approach it together.
Impersonating another poster is strictly prohibited and will get the offender's IP banned immediately. We purposely do not track IP addresses, nor restrict aliases on the board except in this case.
If you find you and a previous poster happen to share the same name, ie, "Stephanie," use an initial or last name(fictitious or otherwise)like Stephanie Smith, etc, in order to distinguish yourself from the original poster. Using an identical nickname confuses the board, and because of our liberal policies, the risk of libel and misrepresentation is too great for a simple added identifier to NOT be used.
So please don't be an idiot. In my case, Stephanie is already taken, but there are loads of other options.
