Jazzbo gave me this Idea when I saw him do it in off topic. Although the problem in this forum is'nt as bad as it gets in OT, it still happens more than it should. When we all registered at talk bass we all agreed to these. By clicking the Agree button, you agree to the following rules: The #1 rule is to have respect for all members. If you do not agree with a fellow member, be courteous in your response. If you do not address everyone on the board with respect, be prepared to lose your membership. Because this forum is viewed by bassists of all ages, all posts must be suitable for viewing by kids, some of whom are under 14 years old. If what you have to say wouldn't be suited for network TV, don't post it here. Controversial topics started for the purpose of creating "mega threads" will be VERY closely moderated (ie, discussions on religion). These kind of threads tend to only inflame people's emotions, creating enemies out of friends. Negative remarks based on race, ethnicity, or religion will not be tolerated. If you have a disagreement with a moderator (If your thread gets deleted, if you get a warning, etc.), DO NOT take it out on the moderator. Do not even think about publicly complaining about a moderators actions. If you have a problem with a moderator's decisions, email the administration at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use courtesy when using the E-Mail, ICQ, or IM functions of the board. Any complaints of members abusing these messaging functions will result in membership termination. The posting of advertisments in the forums will not be tolerated. Please contact TalkBass to discuss link exchanges and advertising opportunities. The owners of TalkBass Forums have the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason. these rules are pretty self explanitory so Im not going to explain them. But I promise if you break them, I will talk to the other mods and see if I can get you banned. I and many others sick of all the childish B.S. thats been going on latly. This is a great site and I am going to do what it takes on my part to keep it that way!!
