  • stay polite and balanced in any conversation or response

  • put any links in signatures
  • copy and paste large chunks from other sites, or include copyrighted material in your post
  • link directly to any kind of media file, (eg photographs, movie clips) as these will not be accepted
  • repeatedly re-post deleted topics
