III. Some things you may not do:

  1. Insult or otherwise offend other users. You're allowed to disagree with somebody, but that's no reason to call that person an idiot.
  2. Start or participate in a flame war.
  3. Troll, that is, post a message with the sole intent of provoking a fierce reaction.
  4. Pretend to be anyone other than yourself (i.e. a moderator or an administrator).
  5. Spam, advertise for commercial products, pornographic websites, or make money fast schemes.
  6. Offer or request pirated copies of any commercial software (this includes Keens 2, 3, 5, the registered versions of 6 and Dreams, and the ROM of Commander Keen for the Game Boy Color!)
  7. Lobby for someone's banishment to be lifted. If you think someone has been banned on incorrect premises, contact an administrator.
  8. Post messages in ALL CAPS, which indicates you're shouting and is considered rather rude.
  9. Use a message signature containing multiple images or excessive HTML effects.
  10. Flood the board with unwelcome posts.
  11. Use vulgar language, or post anything inappropriate for children. There are kids here too, remember?
  12. Threaten to break these rules or try to make someone break them.

Administrators have the right to judge any other behaviour as bad. Use your common sense and you won't have any problems.
Administrators and moderators also have the right and duty to close or delete messages violating these rules.
