No one has been able to find them since the board upgraded.

What info are you looking for? We can probably answer it for you.

Only thing I see in the FAQ is the boilerplate that comes with the system. All stuff on how to functionally use the board. No policy type stuff.

I do appreciate offers to answer questions. However, what I want is to read the TOS. :-)

Oh for fucks sake... Quit being dodgy and ask. What, don't trust us? :?
Or just looking for "proof" that something we told you is wrong?

OP sounds like a rabble-rousing trouble maker to me.

I hope not. It would appear that people have tried to be helpful more than usual in the van thread.

I'm not being dodgy man, I just want to read them for myself. It has absolutely nothing to do with you or anyone else here. I appreciate all the help, feedback and suggestions everyone has given me. But until I see them for myself I won't really understand them, that's all.

I've been told by some folks, including you and a mod, that some of what I posted was against TOS. I changed what the mod requested so my post would stay up. But how can anyone be expected to remain in the bounds of TOS if they can't find them to read them? So I'm trying to make sure I stay in bounds is all. Ain't no big thang, just trying to learn the rules.

Right now, there are no TOS available on the site. Some glitch since the recent upgrade. From what I understand, you can read some form of the TOS when you sign up for a new account, but I haven't verified that, it's been ages since I've signed up. I don't think I have ever read them. If you violate them, one of the mods will be sure to point it out to you.

I'm glad. I wish you good luck with it, obviously. Moderators here include mdmf007 & Bay Bridge Sue among others, if you want to PM a mod with a Terms of Service question.

Oh, and as a little gesture of good will... if someone wants to give me the right access I'll do my best to track down the TOS and put up a sticky.

Here, I found a copy from last year on the internet wayback machine. Hope this help the mods get this up again.

Fair enough. :)

Well until they figure out where the TOS went, here's a few general rules:

Don't post about illegal activity or try to get someone to tell you how to do illegal activity (cops watch here too)
Don't try to sell/shill anything here. (selling tickets over in the ticket area being the obvious exception)
Don't crosspost the same post in multiple areas
Don't be a dick to people (we ride the line on that one here a lot ;) )

I'm sure I'm forgetting some that I'm sure others here will fill in, but that's a good start. :)

Oh cool tool. Yeah, that looks about right.

upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any Content that displays pornographic or sexually explicit material of any kind;

Really?? Man, there's cocks all over this board. :lol:

Oh yeah... posting other people's emails or phone numbers is usually a no-go also.

I've let Spanky know the TOS and teh Community Guidelines are AWOL.

They may have some other little matter on their hands just now.

And yes, I know it says moderator by my name. Just another one of those little things.
These are not my fuckos.

Well you could always just add "oderator" to your current screen name. ;)

OP appears to have radical self entitlement issues. I'm assuming that he's upset about a thread of his that was deleted once and then moved and heavily moderated in the last 24 hours (soliciting illegal activity, advertising, and posting in the wrong forum), and is looking for any kind of loophole that he can find.

Well then, he would love the bit where it says any post can be removed at any time for any reason. The wording is different, but oh yes, it is in there.

I don't have any entitlement issues and I didn't solicit illegal activity nor did I "advertise". All I've done is try to understand the objections so I can avoid the issues in the future. That's not entitlement, but since you think it is then I suppose you think anyone who questions your opinions must have problems. Must suck to live in your world.

Go ahead and take your interpretation and stick that and the attitude you seem to have about it where the sun doesn't shine. Then when you're done go ahead and TOS all my threads, I know you will because I've just called you out publicly and that's the only "revenge" you'll ever be able to get. But it won't matter, because I got my answers.

And by the way, what you've done here, wrongfully accusing me of a crime in a written medium is called both defamation of character and libel. That is illegal and actionable. So if my response is coming off as little pissy, well I am a little pissed at being wrongfully accused of soliciting illegal activity. I have suggested nothing illegal. You might want to think twice before repeating this here again because you'll be drawing BMORG into a legal battle along with yourself if someone should choose to take it there.

To everyone who was helpful I give a very heartfelt thank you. I hope you get to see this thank you before it's deleted.

OK Now...

Let's take this down about 103%.

As a mod we absolutely have the right to moderate this board This includes removing or modifying ANY post as we see fit... and if you signed up here you agreed to it.

I'm watching this thing get played not unlike an accordion, and I personally don't like it. As well, someone tried to help and you make an accusation that they are taking a criminal action against you??!!

For gods sake, it's a fracking internet FORUM.

I'm done. This thread is done. It's locked as of now. You want to open it, you can talk to me - civilly - or another mod. Dig?
