Spam and Spamming.
We operate a strict no-spam policy.
The definition of spam will be decided by the Forum moderation and admin team.
1. Members spamming within our forum area, or via the forum personal message system with frivolous and/or duplicate posts will have their posts removed and their membership revoked for a specified period of time, or indefinitely, as is felt fit by the forum moderating/admin teams. Persistent offenders will have their membership cancelled.
2. Members who join and within their first 10 posts, posts links to external websites, that are not mainstream, will be classes as spammers. The definition of mainstream will be made by the forum administration and moderation team, and is not negotiable.
3. Members posting links, avatars, using business names, posting indirect or direct links, linking to Facebook or twitter who are not forum sponsors will be classed as spammers. Members doing this will be banned and flagged as a spammer. Except as excluded above.
4. We have features which enable members to both edit their own posts in order to add commentary, and to quote multiple posts in one reply. Failure to make use of these features by persistent double (or more) posting, that is, posting multiple times in a single thread without another member doing so in the meantime, may be deemed as spamming.
5. We have automated spam guard software and posts will get deleted or moved automatically if flagged as Spam.
6.Any members who are warned, disciplined, suspended or banned, and subsequently engage in joining with alternative accounts, or emailing the forum moderation or admin team will be classed as in breach of the terms of the forum, will be banned, and will be flagged as spammers.
