  • User Agreement & Forum Rules

    This forum has the best chance for heated discussion, so as a reminder, all the rules apply in this "Off Topic" forum also...

    Here is a copy of the user agreement that everyone accepted when they registered with the CORA forum.

    Everyone's been very well behaved so far and we haven't had a big need for forum moderators or explicit rules. I just thought it would be nice to keep this user agreement somewhere that's easily accessible for reference.

    While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

    You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

    This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The e-mail address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

    By clicking Register below you agree to be bound by these conditions.
    Basically, if it looks like a thread is getting out of control, it will be locked, and the offending posts may be removed, or the whole thread may be removed at the discression of the moderator.

    If a user participates in inflammatory topics and habitually fans the flames, that person will be banned at the discression of the moderator.
