Because of recent posts today, including half a dozen "reported posts", I feel it neccesary to post one more fucking time some of the rules and ettiquette of these boards.

Anyone not following these rules, and I mean ANYONE will find themselves banned permanently from the boards

1. NO POLITICAL BICKERING - Yes it is an election year. Yes people are very strong about their beliefs. However, in case you didn't notice, this is a forum for CELEBRITIES. DO NOT post anything even close to political related here, or flag waving (or flag burning) or anything of the sort that is likely to intice arguments or baiting. This rule has been broken wayyy too much lately and it is really starting to piss me off.

2. NO BADMOUTHING AUTHORS - We DO NOT tolerate the trashing of any author, no matter their skill or story preference or icon on whatever. This is one of the rare communities that is positive towards peoples outlook on creativity and I intend to keep it that way. If you don't like someone's stories, do not read them. If you REALLY have an issue with them, then email the author or just stay fucking quiet. In this same vein...

3. NO FLAME WARS - Bickering with other authors is not acceptable. This has been happening a lot in the past few months, mostly by the same handful of people, but also some newbies. We do NOT tolerate this and consider this one final warning. Anyone baiting or luring someone else into a pissing contest will be banned for good.

Finally, KEEP THINGS FUN! We have all been having a great time here, and we want to keep that up. But as vets know, if things get out of hand, Victoria will pull the plug in a heartbeat and I really don't want to have to grovel again, for a third time, to get her to change her mind. We owe her a lot for her generosity and because of that, I intend to keep paying her back by keeping everyone on their best behavior. I don't care if you have 1 or 1,000 messages under your belt, you will be punished for this. We have to set standards and make examples, otherwise the whole place could be gone.

Feel free to comment on this if you really must, but keep in mind that these rules are not flexible from here on out. I'm tired of second chances, I want things to shape up around here.
