Hi to all,

I am sure you have all noticed the increased forum activity and the many new members. Unfortunately there has been some post or signatures that has violated the rules. The moderators are responsible to monitor the forum and edit or delete anything that violates the rules. As a poster, it is your responsibility to follow the SITE RULES and not include links or ads in your post that are not allowed.

The following are excerpts from the SITE RULES that are most often violated:

Excerpts from Forum Rules.
As a registered member of NAFFF you affirm that you will agree and adhere to the following rules and regulations.

Rude or Insulting Posts
While debating and discussion is allowed, NAFFF will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, threats or purposeless inflammatory posts.

Advertising and Spamming Posts
Advertising and spamming is not allowed in posts. This also includes using the forum email and private message system to spam other members. NAFFF does not allow members to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users that advertise, promote or solicit any products, services or other websites. Explicit advertising in signatures is also prohibited. It is only allowable if the product or service is discussed as a direct answer to a previous post.

URL’s in Posts
You must be very careful when including URL’s or links in posts. A URL may only be included if it is part of a dialog of substantial content or a response to a previous post. Post that are an obvious spam attempt to direct members to another website will be immediately deleted without notification. An example of an illegal post would be… Come to my website at

URL’s in User ID
You may not include a URL as part of your User ID. .com, .net, .org, etc may not be included. Example: is not an acceptable User ID.


Links in Signature
Linking to a commercial product or service is allowed, provided it is not a product or service that competes with any service offered by NAFFF.

Promotional Text in Signatures
Promotional text for a commercial product or service is allowed, provided there are no prices or discount amounts of products or services listed.

A link and promotional text for a site that is not commercial and does not contain products and/or services is allowed, provided the site is not sexual or does not violate NAFFF community standards. Duplicate links to the same URL in a signature are not allowed.


The above rules and regulations cover most common situations, however, they cannot anticipate every situation. Consequently NAFFF reserves the right to take any actions it feels is appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

The NAFFF team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate it forum standards, rules and regulations. NAFFF reserves the right to remove unacceptable posts without notice. NAFFF also reserve the right to ban any member who willfully violates the forum rules. Each potential violation will be dealt with and finalized on a case-by-case basis. The decisions and rulings of NAFFF are final.

I hope you have all read these rules and will do your best to follow them. Keep in mind that the forum has sponsors and it is not appropriate for commercial entities or others to post for the purpose of bringing our members to their WEB page. If you have any questions, the Moderators will be try to answer them. If your post get edited or deleted please try to understand and not take the Moderators to task.
