Ground Rules

Your voice matters—and we have provided you with the ideal forum to express your ideas, opinions, suggestions, and gripes. Our discussion forums, which are open to all, include such topics as local politics, High School news, and the elusive best Fishing reports. Our members are responsible for this content, which is not edited by the Chronicle.

Ground Rules

o 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 or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

o You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

o The Chronicle Sound-off forum is a “PG-13 rated site. It is for all people, regardless of age. Therefore, we will not allow any PROFANITY, PORNOGRAPHY, or ABUSIVE, VULGAR, SLANDEROUS, HATEFUL, THREATENING, SEXUALLY-ORIENTED language or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. NAME-CALLING of fellow forum members, public figures or groups is prohibited. Young members and ladies are welcome to join the site and enjoy its benefits. Any violation of these rules will be grounds for any member being banned from the site.

o Our privacy policy requires members to be at least 13 years of age, but demographic surveys have shown the average age of our members to be over 30. Mature language and concepts are therefore acceptable on Chronicle sound off to the point that would be acceptable on daytime family television, but offensive postings are not. To ensure that standards are maintained we have implemented a filter that will edit out inappropriate language in your postings. However, common sense should prevail and if you are unsure if a word is acceptable or not, please don’t post it. It is prohibited to use alternative characters in an attempt to circumvent the bad words filter.

o Show respect for others using this site. Refrain from fighting, arguing, disrespecting other members or his/her posts. This does not mean that we can’t have friendly discussions and differences of opinions. However, we need to have consideration for the other person.
