Does anyone know where the forum rules are? I've done both searches for them and looked at the terms of service and cannot find them posted anywhere. I see the moderation policy, but nothing that says: "Do x and you are banned."

The policy to not remove anything worked when the forum was small. Now that we have thousands of posts a day, we can't afford 50% of them being junk. The moderators are now instructed to be less tolerant of low-value posts.

Some guidelines:

1. Free speech - you can say anything as long as it is relevant and presented in a calm and polite manner. Swearing, SHOUTING etc. make your post more likely to be removed.
2. No zero value posts or threads, like "SELL SELL SELL"
3. No pointless or uninteresting threads.
4. No referral code spam
5. No NSFW content

There isn't a complete set of rules.

Here are some of the most important rules/guidelines:
- No embedded NSFW images anywhere. NSFW links need to be marked as such.
- No discussion of how to find illegal trading sites. Discussion about the sites is OK.
- No off-topic posts. (This also covers spam.)
- No trolling.
- Topics should be in the correct section.
- Topics should not be pointless.
- Topic creation should not be annoying. There should not be too many topics about the same thing in a short time period, and individuals should not post too many topics. "Too many" depends on the quality of the topics.

Okay thanks. I was just curious due to your PM regarding not banning someone unless they had violated forum rules and I didn't know if these were guidelines and then there were actual rules (like I said, "do X and get banned") or three-strikes or what-not.

If someone wanted to make a case that another user was trolling, how many separate conversations where someone said one thing in private and then posted otherwise in public in order to make the other person look bad would need to be provided in order to justify a ban? Or would it simply just not be allowable because it was done in private? Perhaps a better way of phrasing this is, do you only ban when the troll is successful in upsetting the person in question, or would you ban if there was sufficient enough reason to?

Thanks in advance.

Ha ha HA, very funny Mr. Raize.

Ban me all you want.

Really funny seeing you ask about how you are going to get me banned.

Funnier still because I hope you know once I get banned you will NEVER get those 22.5 BTC of yours back.

If I am not banned and scammer tagged then I have an incentive to give your BTC back.

Or are you trying to deal with me : "gimme 22.5 BTC and I won't tell theymos to ban you" Huh

What a joke ...

No, I wanted to know the forum rules to determine primarily:
1) If it is a violation of them to post a user's personal information. (Doesn't appear there are any rules against this)
2) How far anyone can troll without getting banned. Not just you.

I just want to make sure we're not going to be banned for you making posts and me pretending to be upset about them over the course of the next six months or however long we choose to keep this theater going. I said when I bought your debt this was going to be fun.

Feel free to post my personal information, I don't mind since :

1) I have nothing to hide

2) I consider I have done nothing illegal / to be ashamed of / dodgy

Let the FUNZ begin !

I'd probably only take public posts into account.
