The Territory Terms of Service
Use of Message Forums -
USE OF MESSAGE FORUMS
USE OF THE MESSAGE FORUMS REFLECTS YOUR ASSENT TO ABIDE
BY THE TERMS ON THIS PAGE.
Registration is required in order to post on the forums. Passwords are
mailed out, so a valid e-mail address must be furnished for that purpose. Each user must
have a unique username. The webmasters reserve the right to change or delete a username if
they find it profane or objectionable.
Registration is not required to read the forums.
We will remove posts that don't fit our guidelines. We reserve the right to revoke the
registrations of users who have violated the guidelines or disrupted the forums repeatedly
and/or seriously. Such violations include, but are not limited to:
Gratuitous or excessive insults, abuse or name-calling ("flaming")
Trying to overrun the board with sheer numbers of posts
Spam in all its various forms
Selling tickets for more than face value ("scalping")
Hate messages in regard to race, religion or gender
Pictures including nudity
Links to nudity without clear "NSFW" labeling
No pics/links for porn, period
Turning a non-political thread into a political one outside The Debate
Anything else that makes you more trouble than you're worth
The webmasters reserve the right to make any and all determinations as to whether posts
do or do not meet the above guidelines.
We do not permit the posting of copyrighted articles or text, and it is
against federal copyright law for you to do so. Attributed quotes or summaries meeting the
Fair Use standards are fine, but cutting and pasting all or most of the text verbatim is
not acceptable. We will remove any such posts we discover. Serious or repeated violations
of this rule will result in a revocation of your registration.
If the article is on the Net, link to it instead. This policy applies even
if -- make that especially if -- the article is in a subscriber-only area.
If you spot a message containing a potential copyright violation, please
send the URL of the page to the webmaster
so we can take appropriate action.
