Forum Rules / Moderation

Since the new site and new forums launched over a month ago, the forums have been basically unmoderated. Part of the promise of the new forums was moderation, but I've been totally blown away by the level of civility in most of the forums. For a site this size to go five weeks with no really serious offensive posts, it simply amazing Shocked . You guys are awesome! Very Happy I definitely feel like we have the beginnings of a great community here.

However, the inevitable has finally happened, and I've finally had to step in and remove some messages. Sad

So I wanted to let everyone know what's okay and what's not; what you can expect to be deleted, and what I'll leave alone. The official "forum rules" are located in the site's Terms of Use (see link ...

Thank you for your time, FoxFire.
