Well, I did but that's not the point.

This is not about following rules, it's about common sense ! Most of the times, any logical person can distinguish when and where to draw the line.

Zargon, buddy, you do know that I like you, so do the admins and the mods here. Don't start a flame war here or even something worse.
We all are humans and make mistakes. If caught, we pay; one way or another.

Let it go Zarg, I'm asking this as a favor.
I KNOW you can do better than that

I said 'Yadda yadda' and clicked the agree button.

I agree, though...it should be common sense. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif Put me down for no but yes.

As I mentioned in the heat of battle earlier, though, there is an unspoken consensus here which we practice that allows us a little leeway...the deer sex picture and similar 'risque' humor fall within this category.

So where is the line drawn? It is drawn by common sense (there are those words again.) If we have a hard time determining exactly where that line is, then we should stay well away from it. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

So. Having thoroughly discussed the philosophical gray area of moderated UBB suitability standards for posted material, I would like to open up the floor to discuss pictures of our sisters. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif I have some dandy photos here of mine...who wants to trade?

Even if you dont read it, you are still bound to it. ANd dont get suprised when you get banned, or one of your psots gets dleted... becasue the Mod/admins will point to it for thier reason why they did it.

Basically, if someone complains to the Siths about a post... they are REQUIRED to deal with it

Just spend a few seconds thinking of what you post before you do, if you think someone is going to be offended by it.. dont post it.

Now i remember that Deer pick.. some people might find it offensive. .some might not.. that is in one of those "grey areas" and should be posted with care

I didn't, clicked on agree and voila! Same goes for software/games agreement befor installations: yadda yadda yadda... Does anyone actually read it and if so respects it??
imagine:

"yeah my new super game on PC that cost me loads of $ I've been saving. Gonna install it and copy it for all my friends: wait a minute!: the agreement says I must respect copyright and other stuffs: I do not agree (click), damn I can't proceed instalation. Oh well might as well forget this game...."

it's silly, specially when you read that agreement on a copy, http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif illegal http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif CD.

The reason nobody reads it is because it's SO damn long, it might as well just say, we control you're life here, mess with us and you're banned.

Here it is...
if you agree to abide by our rules below, you should press the "Agree" button, which will enable you to register. If you do not agree, press the "Cancel" button.
Considering the real-time nature of the XWingAlliance bulletin board, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we at do not actively monitor the contents of and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this BB or any entity associated with this BB. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this BB to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this BB.

Although this BB does not and cannot review the messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at this BB reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless this BB, Madrona Park, Inc. (the makers of the bulletin board software), and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

We at this BB also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate io this BB.
