This forum's rules - in conjunction with those that you agreed to upon registration - are designed to produce as much considered, intelligent discussion as possible. Therefore, please follow them. Any questions regarding the rules should be submitted to brian@discusssoccer.com.

The following are also subject to change by the forum administrators.

1. You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum 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 forum.

2. You may not use the name of any professional soccer/football personality as your username, nor may you use the name of any other celebrity/personality (unless of course you ARE that celebrity/personality and can prove the fact).

3. Please make no reference to the buying or selling of any material by any company or website, without the express permission of the administrators.

4. Discussion of the private sexual preferences and practices of soccer players/footballers, or anyone else, is inappropriate.

5. Flaming is not allowed.

6. Questions of forum or website policy should be addressed to the Administrators or Moderators via E-mail or Private Message, not posted on the forum.

7. All 'spoilers' (new topics dealing with the actual happenings on a current or newly-recent televised soccer/football event) must be identified by a post title which also uses the phrase "(includes ***SPOILERS***). This is a courtesy to board readers who wish to be forewarned. 'Spoilers' may not be posted to existing topic threads either.

8. If you wish to stop posting, just do it. Posts announcing one's 'retirement from the forum' will be deleted.

9. If you are blocked from posting, you must receive permission via E-mail or Private Message from the Administrators before you are permitted to post again. When and if that happens, you will be unblocked. During the ban, you are not permitted to create a new account. In this event, both accounts will be deleted and IP bans will be enforced.

10. You are allowed to upload an image icon, called an "Avatar", that appears just below your user name when posting. We expect you to use this feature with "good taste": no nudity, profanity, crude or animated images.

11. There are many different types of people who are members at Discuss Soccer, with many different thoughts and viewpoints. One of the primary goals of our cyber community is to foster an intelligent, enjoyable, and civil exchange of thoughts and ideas about soccer/football and its related topics between our members. You may even make new friends here.

We expect you to respect the opinions of your fellow forum members. Please curb any urge you may have to flippantly dismiss someone's opinion (Examples: "that's stupid", "that's ignorant", "that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard").

12. "Thread Crapping" occurs when a person comes into a thread and posts something contrary to the spirit/intent of the thread, often derailing the discussion or turning it into an argument. This will not be tolerated - if you feel the need to turn a discussion into a debate, start a new thread instead.

13. We reserve the right to close or remove any post or thread at any time for any reason, without notice. If after reading the forum rules the reason for the thread/post removal is not clear to you, please contact an Administrator/Moderator Gort to ask for further explanation. Do not, under any circumstances, post in the thread or start a new thread asking why your thread or post was removed.

14. Please express your opinion as clearly as you can. This includes no text speak.
