Forum Terms of service
The moderators and administrators of this forum will do their best to delete or edit any reprehensible messages that may be posted on the forum. You acknowledge that all messages posted on this forum express the opinion of their respective authors, and do not necessarily reflect the position of the moderators and administrators.
In order to ensure the moderation of this forum, any message violating the preceding provisions may be edited or deleted without notice by the moderators and administrators of the forum. Any abuse may also be sanctioned by banning or deleting the user account. We reserve the right to inform your access provider and/or the judicial authorities of any malicious behaviour.
This forum may send you electronic messages (e-mail), such as activity notifications, or newsletters, sent by Forumotion or by an administrator of this forum. You can choose in your profile preferences to receive or not each of these messages.
Click on the button 'I Agree to these terms' below :
- You acknowledge that you have read these rules in their entirety ;
- You agree to comply fully with this rules ;
- You grant moderators of this forum the right to delete, move or edit any topic at any time.
Remember - this is a relaxing, stress-free place for parents and parents-to-be to share advice and support. Please be courteous to other members - whilst everyone is entitled to their opinions, there are good and bad ways of putting those opinions across. Please be respectful to the fact that your fellow members may have different opinions to you. Please speak with other members in the same manner in which you would wish to be spoken to. Whilst discussion and debate are welcome, sustained personal attacks will not be tolerated.
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 (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable. Just because a member is Admin or a moderator does not mean that they are not entitled to having their own opinion.
Do not post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening or any other material that may violate any applicable laws, cause discomfort to any of our members or go against any of the rules issued by the administrators. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed where applicable). All posts and chatroom messages are logged, and the IP address is recorded to aid any enforcement of these conditions.
Respectful Participation Required: While we encourage members to share from their experiences, we do ask that you do so in a manner that is both kind and respectful to the person you are responding to. Please remember that some topics are very emotional topic for participants in one way or another. There is a big difference between offering a differing opinion and kicking the dog while its down. We ask that all members be sensitive to the differing emotions and not use the forums as a platform to promote an agenda which is not supportive of our members.
No personal attacks: Personal attacks of any kind, public of private, will not be tolerated. Chat rooms, message boards and journals are intended to be a positive, safe place for everyone. You are welcome to disagree with a member, but calling them names or flaming their character is not allowed. If you have a personal issue to discuss with a member, please take it off the boards and discuss it via PM. ALL personal conflicts between members are to remain personal. PPB will not tolerate the bullying or abusing of members. Members who do not keep their personal differences off the board will recieve a warning. Those members who continue with harmful disscussions on the boards will be banned.
ANY PPB member found using the private messenging system in an abusive or threatening way will be instantly banned. Please contact Admin if you believe you are the recipient of such messages immediately.
Note: 24-hour and 7-day and longer bans have now been introduced and may be issued - without prior warning - to members involved in arguments on the forum. If you become involved in an argument, you must cease posting immediately otherwise you will quite likely receive an instant ban (temporary or otherwise, as the admin/mod team see fit). Any threads containing arguments will be locked/deleted when admin/mods see fit. Do not start another thread asking where a missing thread has gone - it has obviously been removed for a valid reason and your new thread will be removed as well, without notification. If you find yourself becoming embroiled in an argument, please take it up elsewhere - PM, MSN, etc - but DO NOT continue it on the public forum for all to see. We will not tolerate any arguing, bullying or nastiness, nor will we allow posts made with the intention of provoking other members or generally causing trouble, anywhere on our forum at any time. There will be no discussion of banned members. Obviously they have been banned for a valid reason, and the thread asking what happened will be removed as well, without notification. This forum is here to support members in a relaxing, stress-free environment and ALL offenders will be dealt with appropriately.
Administrators and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit.
