Hello Everyone,

Lately, we have been having numerous violations of the TOS. If you haven't done so already, please be sure to read the City-Data Terms of Service if you read nothing else.

Some of the issues we've been encountering lately are:

Personal Attacks:
Be sure you are debating the idea and not attacking the person. This also refers to making personal comments to the other poster.

Responding to violations: DO NOT respond to violations!!!! Instead, report the violations. Also, please consider that we moderators all have jobs and are not on here 24-7. While we will respond to your reports ASAP, please do not continously report the same post. We, or another moderator, will respond!

Staying on Topic: A little off-topic here and there is fine, but let's not abandon the Original Post entirely.

Advertising: We have specific rules for realtors that you can find in the TOS.

Complaining : This is an open forum and people are basically permitted to post here whether or not they still live in the area.
As long as the post is not totally off-topic, the poster does have the right to voice his or her opinion, even if you may not agree with it; however, TROLLING is not permitted.

Racially insensitive remarks: It is sad that this has to even be mentioned, but please refrain from making remarks that are hurtful , unkind or racially insensitive.

Calling out moderators: If you have a question about a post that was removed, feel free to contact me or aragx6. Calling out the moderators in the posts will result in another infraction.

Copyright: When you come across interesting articles or pictures on the internet, feel free to post the link to them. Posting an article or a picture that you do not own the rights to is copyright infringement.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me and I will do my best to get back to you.

Thank you all for your assistance in this. With all of your help, we can have a wonderful forum.

Please do not start any more crime-related threads in this forum. The topic has been discussed many times previously and such threads inevitably devolve into bashing, personal attacks, bickering or worse.
My posts as a Moderator will always be in red.
