Board Rules

    1. No Spam / Advertising / Self-promotion in the forums
    This forum defines spam as unsolicited advertising for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content. Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums, etc.
    Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users.

    DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers
    Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted.

    2. Do not post copyright-infringing material
    Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted material is forbidden.

    3. Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images
    Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse, is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on this forum. This includes user pictures. Use common sense when posting.

    4. Do not cross-post questions
    Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum that which is most suitable in that to post your question.

    5. Do not PM users asking for help
    Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum, then the whole community can help and benefit.

    6. Remain respectful of other members at all times
    This should be self explanatory, but just in case, on this board, we do not tolerate people acting like jerks for no reason. Every member here is valued and appreciated so treat everyone with civility, and by "everyone" means newbies,regular members and premium members.

    This is the biggie. Break it and you get a warning. Break it again, your name goes in the book. Third time, you're banned from PBB for a duration of our choosing. There will be no warnings, no appeals. Personal attacks and insults of any form will not be tolerated on this board from here on in. If you feel harassed or mistreated please click the iReport link at the top navigation of this site for us to immediately investigate.

    7. Posting
    Debate and discussion is encouraged but emotions can sometimes run high in 'debates' and arguments so figure out how to make your point without getting personal, below are some tips.

    Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and a right to express it in this forum. But everyone needs to understand that by doing this, they're hoisting that opinion up for everyone else to either salute, ignore, or take shots at.

    Just to remind you some members see things very differently from the way you do and will hold you to account for your opinions and assertions. Knowing this, you are forced to look carefully at your own opinions, try to anticipate how others will perceive them and what objections they might raise, and ask yourself how you might address those objections, all before you even hit the "submit" button.

    Also consider carefully all the ways your comments can be interpreted and rework it if necessary to avoid misinterpretation. Look objectively at the tone of the comment; does it come across as angry, dismissive or insulting? Maybe that's what you want, but understand that will inevitably lead to an escalation.

    -Humor and sarcasm may easily be misinterpreted as well, so try to be as matter-of-fact and professional as possible.

    -No Double Posting – DO NOT willingly double post or post very similar posts multiple times.

    -Before posting a thread, use the Search option to see if someone has already posted the same question.

    -Please avoid using txt speak. There is plenty of capacity for creating eloquent, correctly punctuated posts. Txt speak will not get a good response from forum members and is likely to be deleted by moderators.

    -Do not write in all CAPS, writing in all CAPS is rude in the internet world. It represents shouting and we do not appreciate unfriendliness on the forum.

    -Post in the correct category. Read the forum descriptions if you are confused.

    -Forum signatures are limited to four lines of text, normal font size. Signature content must conform to the same guidelines as all content in this code of conduct.

    -Discussion or asking for sources to obtain illegal drugs, steroids, ancillary meds, DNP, clen, T3, illegal pro-hormones-research liquid products, or any other product not legally sold is illegal and is strictly prohibited.

    -Any SPAM will be immediately deleted and the user warned.

    8. Flaming
    Flaming is what happens when you post before you have time to rein in your emotions and/or dial back the hate-o-meter. Flaming is against the very first rule of this and every other forum, so don't do it. Flaming any member of the community will not be tolerated. If you feel that someone is directly attacking you on a personal level, or if you feel that someone is being intentionally offensive to someone else, please notify us by clicking the iReport link at the top navigation of this site.

    -Trolling takes many forms, but the most offensive kind is the one whereby a user enters a discussion or thread or debate with the explicit purpose of making other people angry--either by expressing outlandish, controversial views that are bound to receive a negative response, or simply by posting the same thing over and over and ignoring feedback. Trolling is not something that will be tolerated. Being belligerent and antagonistic, or provoking other members intentionally, will be considered in the same light as trolling. Again, if you think you are being trolled, or if you see someone trolling someone else, please notify us by clicking the iReport link at the top navigation of this site.

    9. PM System
    Misuse of the PM system for advertising purposes or to solicit business from a member is not tolerated. Confidential communication between two willing counterparts is one thing but when you send a PM to a member soliciting a source or trying to push product and it's brought to our attention proper actions will be taken.

    -Do not send messages intending to cause upset to any other member of the community. If you receive any unsolicited messages intending to cause upset do not reply to it and report it.

    -Do not pm the ladies asking for photos, google vagina and find your own!

    10. Multiple accounts
    Each user can only have one and only one account. All clones (other accounts for same user) will be immediately permabanned with no warning whatsoever. The original account (taken as the oldest account for that user) will be sanctioned at least with one warning, up to direct permaban, to the moderation team discretion. Banned accounts count as one account as well.

    Moderation Policy
    We hope that you will abide by the rules and that no action will be necessary to oblige you to comply with them.
