You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons.

Self-Promotion is Spam:  All posts are read by our administration and moderation team. In the event we encounter questionable content, it will immediately be edited or removed. Any post that is considered advertising for ones self-interests and/or business fits under this subject. You are allowed to promote your web site(s) in your signature; but, you are not permitted to post links to sites which are any kind of affiliate program link with referrer IDs. Repeat violators who post promotional content will be permanently banned.

Personal Attacks:  In order to maintain a positive atmosphere, no personal attacks or insults will be tolerated. There is no attacking or insulting others who may not agree with your understanding or beliefs. Please stay within the boundries of passionate, respectful discussion not one that delves into personal matters, debating issues, not individuals. When the line is crossed, the discussion may be closed by the moderation team. Violators will be warned and potentially banned.

Commercial Links:  Are strictly not allowed if they are adverts or for personal gain.

Advertisements:  No advertisements whatsoever, (this includes commercial links and/or paid services) without the express permission of the administrators of this board.

Signature Rules:  A typical signature might contain the poster's name, e-mail address, website, and a favorite quote or saying. No links to affiliate accounts, advertisements or any other commerical links are allowed.  Excessive font size are not allowed. Anyone abusing this privilege will be warned and then have their signature removed. 

Multiple Accounts Per Individual Are Not Permitted:  If you forget your password, use the password recovery tool, in which case you will be able to reset your password, given that you have access to the e-mail associated with your account. If you are still unable to login, contact the administrator.

Spammers:  Will be banned immediately without notice or warning and this includes spammers abusing the pm system. This includes private messaging members to promoting other websites/forums. 

Articles and Poems:  Any such work posted must be your own unless you have permission to post another's work. Copyrighted material posted by members who choose to disregard copyright law is done so at member's own risk - The Teachings of Babaji and it's staff will take no responsibility for any consequences incurred, though we will attempt to remove any such work when found or when we are alerted to it.
