The Rules: Etched in stone.

As suggested , I think with some recent isolated events that it’s a good time for all of us to review what we signed up for. These boards are a great outlet. And it would be a shame if they were compromised by a couple “bad apples”. I’m not a “web cop” , and don’t wish to perform a similar duty. This is being posted as a reminder only. If someone needs to be re-directed to these rules it wont be an unseen mystery.

You agree, through your use of these Fish Sniffer forums, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of ANY law. This is not humorous and legal actions can be taken against you. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or you have consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also inappropriate to these Fish Sniffer forums and will not be tolerated.

Note that it is impossible for us to confirm the validity of posts on these Fish Sniffer forums. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages and are not responsible for their content. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any information presented. The messages express the views of the author, NOT the views of The Fish Sniffer. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify the administrator or moderator of that forum immediately. We have the rights to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy goes for member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this forum, The Fish Sniffer, R&D Web, Fish Sniffer employees, Fish Sniffer volunteers, and any related websites to this forum. The Fish Sniffer reserves the right to reveal your identity (or any information we have about you) in the event of a criminal complaint, criminal investigation or legal action arising from any information posted by you.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another member, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another member's account to post messages or browse this forum.

After you register and log into these Fish Sniffer forums, you can fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information we deem inaccurate or vulgar will be removed.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from these Fish Sniffer forums or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a violation of this agreement.

Thank you, *hEmi*
