Site Rules **Please read!!!**

Post by Garrett Clark on Sun Jul 17, 2011 5:11 am

GENERAL RULES
We reserve the right to suspend or ban anyone for any reason we deem necessary, and to delete any post for any reason.

You are expected to practice common "Netiquette" while participating in forum discussion with other members (whether you like them or not). We suggest if you don't like someone, then stay out of their posts. And definitely don't make another post addressing them directly or indirectly.

If you think someone is breaking any of the rules listed here, please notify the Site Owner, the Administrator, or one of the Moderators of the offending post so they can deal with it.

Everything on this web site is subject to monitoring. All issues are ultimately decided by the Administrators of this web site. If you wish to appeal a decision, send a private message (PM) to the Administrators who have final decision authority.

STREET RACING
BHSM does not condone ANY type of street racing activity by any member or non-member of this site. Also, there will be no "calling out" for any type of illegal street racing on this site. If you wish to "call out" someone on here, the race must be held at a drag strip.

REGISTERING WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS
In order to be eligible to post to the discussion forum, BHSM requires that you provide a unique e-mail address when registering.

DUPLICATE ACCOUNTS
At no time will one individual have two different accounts. One account will be deleted and a possible suspension will be handed out.

RACIST, ETHNIC, ANTI-RELIGIOUS POSTS
Do not post racist, ethnic, or anti-religious statements. Unambiguous expressions of racist, ethnic, or anti-religious will be deleted, and will often result in the immediate warning of the individual responsible for the post. However, if there were previous warnings of similar instance in the past then an immediate banning of the individual responsible may occur.

If it is not clear whether a comment is racist, ethnic, or anti-religious, we will generally give the benefit of the doubt and assume the least interetation. However, individuals who repeatedly post borderline comments will be considered for removal of the site...zero tolerance.

When discussing race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion, please exercise the appropriate level of sensitivity toward others and take extra care to clearly express your point of view. This will help avoid misunderstandings and undeserved accusations.

PORN
Absolute no porn is allowed on any part of this site. This will be a immediate suspension or banning.

WORD FILTERS
We do not currently use the word filter option however, should the language begin to get out of hand, we will employ the use of the word filters. We are very lenient, just don't abuse it.

AVATARS & SIGNATURE BLOCKS
Will be in good taste. If not, you will be asked to remove them. A second violation will result in you not being allowed to have one. If a avatar or signature block is put in place to antagonize another member and it is blantant, you will be asked to remove it.

PERSONAL ATTACKS, CIVILITY, AND RESPECT
The Administrators of BHSM are working to provide a place where members can ask questions, share ideas and debate in an atmosphere of mutual respect. Every member of this community has a responsibility to participate in a respectful manner, and to help foster an atmosphere of thoughtful discussion. In this regard, we strongly advise that our members exercise a little common decency. Do not post personal attacks or engage in name-calling against other members of this board.

BHSM message board welcomes a broad range of members and opinions. As such, you are likely to disagree strongly with some of the comments you see expressed here. Please do not take these differences of opinion personally. The simple fact that someone disagrees with you does not give you the right to lash out and break the rules of this message board. A thick skin is usually required to participate on this or any message board. There is a difference between forceful advocacy for a particular issue (which is allowed), and personally attacking people (which is forbidden).

Do not "stalk" another member from one discussion thread to another. Do not follow someone into another thread to try to continue a disagreement you had elsewhere. Do not talk negatively about an individual in a thread where they are not participating. Do not start a new discussion thread with the purpose of "calling out" another member or picking a fight with another member.

If you are the type of person who just can't get along with other people, and if you seem to repeatedly cause trouble, eventually we will decide that your presence is a disruption and we will suspend ban you. It doesn't matter if you are a long-term member of this board.

There are no exceptions to these civility rules. You cannot attack someone because they attacked you first, or because that person "deserved it," or because you think someone is a disruptor. We consider it a personal attack to call a liar a liar, to call a moron a moron, or to call a jerk a jerk.

Do not post messages that advocate harm or death to anyone, threaten the livelihood of anyone, or otherwise harass anyone. Do not take your disagreements off the message board and into the "real world," and do not do anything to try to harm or harass any member of this message board in the "real world."

Do not post personal information about any other person, even if that information is publicly available. In addition, Bad Habit Street Machines does not condone or encourage efforts by individuals to "dig up" information about other visitors.

Do not post duplicate topics that have already been posted.

No thread high-jacking. Please make every efforts to stay on topic. If thread high-jacking is what you enjoy, then please do so in the "Random Talk" section.

At times our Administrators or Moderators may move threads to their appropriate forum. Please assist us in this task and ensure that you are posting your topic in the appropriate forum.

Messages posted on our discussion board are the opinions of the individuals who post them, and do not necessarily represent the opinions of BHSM.

THE MODERATORS
Treat the Moderators with respect.

Do not post messages attacking the Moderators or Administrators.

All of the Moderators on this discussion board are volunteers. They provide their time and their good judgment to this web site free of charge. They do not make the rules; they only enforce the rules. They do not deserve to have scorn heaped upon them either publicly or privately. If you think something requires the attention of the Moderators, please contact one of the moderators and let them handle it.

Please be aware that Moderators are not expected to be online all the time, and therefore they cannot respond immediately to every problem that arises on this discussion board. If you sent a complaint to a Moderator, please give that Moderator sufficient time to respond. Do not assume that a Moderator is ignoring your concerns merely because he or she does not respond as quickly as you would like.

When a Moderator enforces the message board rules, members are expected to respect their authority and abide by their decisions. If you disagree with a Moderator's decision, you are required to take it up with one of the Administrators. Do not send rude, dismissive, or disrespectful responses to the Moderators as this will lead to a warning or possible ban. If you think a Moderator has acted inappropriately, please contact one of the Administrators privately so we can deal with it.

DO NOT share private messages you receive from Members, Moderators and Administrators with ANYONE unless you have permission from an Admin and/or the sender. Here at BHSM, "private" messages are just that...PRIVATE.

The only people on this board with the authority to speak or act on behalf of BHSM, are the site Administrators. The Moderators only represent BHSM when they are performing their official duties.

Moderators have the following duties:

1. They answer questions from, and provide guidance to web site visitors.
2. They move, lock, or archive discussion threads for various reasons.
3. They can give warning points to repeat offenders.
4. They delete disruptive and offensive posts.
5. They alert Administrators of any issues they need to know about.
6. They can recommend "bannings" or "suspensions" but are not the ultimate approving authority for this. Only an Administrator can actually "suspend" or "ban" someone. The only exception to this is "spammers". They can be banned on the spot.

When Moderators are performing these duties, they are acting on behalf of BHSM. Their judgment should be respected. They are human, and they occasionally make mistakes. But in most cases, they do the right thing. Moderators are allowed to participate in social discussions, just like other visitors to our board. When they do so, they are speaking for themselves only. They do not represent any official position of BHSM.

THE ADMINISTRATORS
If you have any questions about the rules of this message board, please contact the web site Administrators by sending them a personal PM.

Occasionally, the Administrators of this web site will make decisions that are not popular. We have given up trying to make everyone happy, because it is simply not possible. It is a fact, you just can't get along with everyone no matter how much you try.

Again, thank you for your support and activity on Bad Habit Street Machines!

Garrett Clark,
Site Owner /Admin
