ToS

This topic has had no activity within the past six months. It is recommended that you start a new topic instead of replying to old topics.

4 posts in this topic

several months ago, the staff discussed posting the ToS on the board. it's always been a part of the registration page that everyone must sign, but who really reads the stuff they agree to anyway? besides, there was some stuff that wasn't covered in it, and at the time we discussed it, all of the staff contributed suggestions on what needed to be included.

i'm posting the ammended ToS below. you might each want to familiarize yourself with it.

Quote
MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA: if you are wanting to interview people for a radio, tv, or magazine or newspaper article, please contact a member of the administration via private message. Provide us with the pertinent information, and preferably a link to some of your previous works, or to a previous broadcast. If we determine that your show might be more beneficial than harmful, we will respond and let you know. If you post a request without our approval, it will be removed.

THE BASIC RULES (ToS)

1) treat others with respect. you can be blunt without being mean about it.

2) if the person in question is a pedophile, troll or freak, disregard rule #1.

[ Note from KC/Owner: I would like to make one point crystal clear: if you are a pedophile, you are at the wrong website. The moderators here have over 100 years of combined experience with computers and computer security. Some are experts. I can and will hunt you down and turn over all incriminating evidence to the police, any local gangs, post your information on public perv websites or worse. If you abuse children, I am your worst nightmare. That's my word. ]

3) never act superior to any staff member. if you have a problem with staff, take it up with them privately.

4) respect religious differences.

5) watch your language and use of graphic sexual descriptions in posts, we have a very broad range of visitors and members. this is not a porn site.

6) under NO circumstances is any member permitted to have multiple accounts or to use another member's account without express permission of the administrators.

THE STANDARD STUFF:

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries.

Hi LadyC,

I hope you are doing well today. My name is Kelley Andrews and I am a producer at Two Four America, a documentary production company based in Los Angeles, CA. We are currently developing a new documentary series shining the spotlight on cousins who are in strong, loving relationships. Our hopes and intentions for this evocative series are to inform and educate viewers about loving, happy relationships between cousins. We hope that this powerful series will help break down the stereotypes and misconceptions that some individuals may hold about such relationships.

I would really appreciate the opportunity to connect with your members and see if any would be interested in sharing their story with us.

Please contact me at "redacted"

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing with you.

Sincerely,

Kelley Andrews

Kelly,

Since you posted on the ToS page, I would hope you would have read the first paragraph of them, which is specifically for members of the media. But, it would appear you did not. Or, you did not comprehend what it says. Or, you do not care.

Allow me to boil it down to the basics for you. DO NOT POST CONTACT INFO WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL OF STAFF. PERIOD. SOMEONE WILL VET YOU FIRST. IT WILL NOT BE ME. AS MEDIA AND THEIR SHENANIGANS HERE ARE ONE OF MY PET PEEVES, AND YOU ARE OFF ON THE WRONG FOOT, YOU DO NOT WANT TO HEAR WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ON THIS MATTER. I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT LadyC (admin) or KC (admin/owner). You will find their PM inbox links on the "Staff" drop-down on the main page of the forum.

I will leave your redacted post for LadyC to decide if she will move or remove it, depending on how your vetting goes. If it is determined your project is worthy of consideration, THEY will post your contact information.

Resident Pit Bull on duty,

Hawk

Kellye, you agreed to our terms of service when you joined this forum, and it is impossible for you to have missed the large bold warning to all media people that you are required to contact the administrators for permission before posting any requests for people to interview. you have failed to do that, so therefore you will not be allowed to contact people. i'm banning your posting privileges.
