Our 'Ten Commandments'
Be truthful about yourself and don’t hide behind your username; you must register using your real name and email address (which we keep secret). If you don't use your own name as your username, please note that we may not accept your proposed name if it could be interpreted as offensive, or political, or a trade name, or misleading.
Stick to the point, and don’t keep repeating yourself.
Keep it legal and ethical.
Keep the site free of damaging downloads, links, and spam.
Keep yourself and other users safe: don’t recklessly divulge your own or other people’s personal data. If you want to share private information use the Messaging option, not the public forum.
Be nice: don’t make personal attacks on individuals or organisations; the site is for friendly interaction, sharing information and intelligent debate.
Think before you post: only put on the forum what you are happy for the whole world to see and share.
Report any inappropriate or offensive postings to the Moderator; the quickest way is to click on the “!” alert button top right of the discussion.
Don’t be rude about other people’s postings or criticise their grammar and spelling.
Don't post public comments about the moderating process. If you have a genuine query or don’t think a moderator’s decision is right please email us at or and we’ll reconsider and get back to you as soon as possible – but the final decision is final!
