5: No Impersonations & One account per user, please:
Please do not register multiple accounts. Whether they are created for the purposes of trolling, arguing with yourself, or supporting your own arguments, using alternate nicknames and accounts is considered to be spamming and / or trolling, depending on circumstances. Do not attempt to impersonate other forum members, and forum moderators/administrators. Such an attempt will not be successful and it is an offence that will get you banned from the forums -no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Please do not post email addresses, standard addresses, ICQ and other messaging client numbers, or phone numbers which are not your own.

Overwhelming images are not permitted. Ascii Art is not permitted, and signature content must adhere to forum posting rules.
10: No Multiple Posting of the same topic:
DO NOT post the same topic in multiple forums. If you are unsure of which forum a thread should go under, just state that in your post, and a moderator will move the thread to the correct forum. Multiple posts are unnecessary and will be deleted.
11: No Spamming:
Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty bodies, bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are Spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count.
Our moderators reserve the right to edit or delete any posts they consider to be 'spam'.
12: Other unacceptable behaviour:
13: Posting of Prices:
You may not post prices for your own services and or products in the forum. Links to other sites may be made if they are relevant to the discussion.
It is our intention to ensure our forum stays a friendly, interesting place to visit and I expect those who are not comfortable with our rules to leave peacefully and waste there time elsewhere.
