Message Boards and Weblogs

Visitors are encouraged to share their views.

All forums are moderated, and messages found to violate common standards of decency will be removed. Management reserves the right to remove posts or threads of discussions at our discretion.

Users shall not upload to, or distribute, or otherwise publish through this website any content which is obscene, pornographic and abusive or otherwise violates any law.

The forums (blogs and message boards) shall be used only in a non-commercial manner. Users shall not, without the express approval of the administrators, distribute or otherwise publish any material containing any solicitation of funds, advertising or solicitation for goods or services.

Respond once to someone on a thread then allow others to comment before you respond again to the person. If your responses follow each others then you can come over as attempting to monopolize discussions.

We will delete ALL the posts from posters who attempt to monopolize the forums, especially those who do it under various usernames.

Sharing profiles/registered accounts is not allowed. In other words, a separate account for each user is required on the forums. Only one account/username per user is allowed.

While we do not and cannot review every message posted by users and are not responsible for any content of these messages, the administrators or designated agents reserve the right to delete, move or edit messages that we, in our discretion, deem abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright, fair use or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable. Users shall remain solely responsible for the content of their messages.

No unreasonable personal attacks allowed (unreasonable will be determined by moderators). By viewing or posting to this Website, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Guardian Media Limited of any claims resulting from your usage, which damage yourself, or any party.

The moderators are volunteers. They provide their time and their judgement to this website free of charge, and the administrators of this website are grateful for their help.

The administrators of this website are busy people. Feel free to contact us about any issue. But please bear in mind that we may not be able to respond immediately, and we may not give you the answer you want. Also, be aware that we do not respond kindly to threats or other strong-arm tactics.
