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 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.

An example of an illegal post would be… Come to my website at iamajerk.com.

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.
