Our moderators will not tolerate rudeness, profanity, or anything resembling aggression from one member to another. We believe in 2nd chances, and will endeavor to start with a warning after a post or comment has been deleted. If a post or comment is particularly offensive, what we would deem over the top, the member could be banned without warning.
SEO Spam and General Spam. For your first week you will be limited to 5 posts a day. Links to personal or business websites will be allowed after you've made 10 posts or comments. We want you to be able to promote your business or blog, but we need to monitor for SEO spam.
