Some simple rules:
1) An opinionated post can be left without contestation
Sometimes opinions will be voiced that might be contrary to one's own. Arguments normally happen when no one backs down.
There's plenty examples of online forums where opinionated persons go back and forth, viciously, and no one can seem to back down.
It becomes very frustrating and is not very productive. Respect everyone's opinion; this is just a little internet forum, and not that important.
We expect courteous behavior here, yes, even in THE PUB now also.
2) Do NOT double post the same thing
Just because it's tempting to post the same thing in several categories ---> DON'T!!!
It won't get you an answer faster, and it's extremely annoying!
3) Please report back with news if a problem got resolved
This would be VERY helpful to the HV20 community, so please take the time to report back:
if you ask a question about a problem you're having, and you end up resolving it;
then PLEASE report back on how you resolved it. This would help the whole
community, and would be the gracious thing to do...
4) No SPAM
SPAMMERS will be banned and their posts deleted.
5) No personal attacks
NO PERSONAL ATTACKS! We won't tolerate personal attacks any longer.
Don't call someone an imbecile, douchebag, arsehole, mother f'er, $hithead, or any variation of those.
Don't make direct references to some other person on here, by saying "XXX is blind", "XXX doesn't know what they he/she talking about",
"XXX is a liar.", or any variation of those.
NO PERSONAL ATTACKS!
6) No link-only posts!
This new rule implemented 19 May 2011: NO POSTING OF LINKS without more information. It had to come to this!
We no longer will tolerate the posting of links without "some" background information as to what the link is redirecting to.
Simply add a few short lines of additional information what it is, we are about to see and/or hear.
NO MORE LINK-ONLY REDIRECTS!
7) Enjoy yourself
