Posting an excessive description of violent material will not be allowed. If a mod asks you to stop immediately we expect you to do so. We also do not allow users to verbally threaten anyone on this forum. This action will result in a suspension of your account and depending on the severity, a permanent ban.
Keep Posts On-Topic
We realize how easy it is to get off the tracks sometimes with long threads, but we ask you to please make sure that threads stay on-topic. If you have a unrelated topic to discuss that was born from a different thread then please start a new thread.

Avoid Excessive Caps & Colors
If you're trying to get an important point across please do not resort to posting it in all CAPS or using very bright, hard-to-read colors. We will edit your post or delete it if need be.
