General Forum Rules and Guidelines

The OCF™ message board is a moderated community. We welcome new members and visitors and lurkers, alike (some restrictions may apply--Please Note: The OCF
board is still a growing work in process, (so please bear with us as we make the transition to a ‘24/7’ fully live board), but ultimately there’s no community without YOU! So stop lurking and become a member!)

Note: unregistered visitors or lurkers may have limited access to some areas of the site.

Barring down time, registered members have 99% access to all authorized areas of the site.

This forum is for positive community support and interactions, to be used for healthy entertainment purposes only. OCF is neither a professional, nor medical advice forum, and may not be used or construed as such. And no comments on this site should be used to replace professional medical advice in any way.

Please Note: A lot of information is re-circulated (via family, multiple online memberships, but please acknowledge your sources). OCF (and it's affiliates, including, but not limited to JJFGroup-NFP, etc.) shall not be held responsible for posted information that may violate permissions of use or copyright law. Please inform us of such an error and such posts will be removed as soon as possible.

Also, all posts or emails that are deemed (by administration) to be crude, vulgar, abusive, libelous, threatening, unsafe, defamatory, obscene, profane, hateful, harassing, invasive (of privacy), stalkerish or in violation of any law will be deleted from the boards and may lead to loss of forum-account use or privileges. Please exercise Ethical Personal Judgment when utilizing any communication boards.

Members may alert the board moderators of board concerns or abuse, by way of PM (private message) Please be sure to provide the exact username, board name, and the URL of the page, to only one moderator, by email/PM only (and not publicly on the boards) to report board concerns and abuses.

In Case of Depression
If you have thoughts of suicide, immediately call 911 (in America), or call a hospital, or call local police for emergency help. The Internet is NOT an appropriate place express thoughts of suicide, or a desire to harm others, or engage in self-mutilation. Such posts will be removed.

If you are depressed or anxious, or experiencing life-stress, please contact a therapist (MD) immediately. You are not alone and there are many anonymous hotlines available to the public, as well as traditional psychotherapy specialists. Please seek professional support until things get better.

NEVER rely on information or member opinions in posts to replace necessary, personal consultation(s) with qualified health or medical professionals.

This forum is for support, empowerment, sharing opinions and entertainment.

Also, remember that what's right or has worked for one person may not be what's right for you. Your personal set of circumstances will always only influence what's best or right for you.

Protect Your Personal Information
Never post your age, real name, home address, telephone number or email information, on the public message boards. Similarly, do not ask for personal ID information from others. For safety protocol reasons, such posts will be removed and may also result in permanent suspension of board privileges without notice. The Internet is a public domain and information on the Internet may be accessible for years by anyone using a search engine.

This forum is for the purpose of general information sharing only. Posts that request anyone to submit personal information or off-board contact information may be removed and may lead to banning. Also, Usernames with sexual implication/content will be deleted without notice.

Information Sharing Guidelines
Please feel free to name specific (hair, skin, clothing, medical, food related only) products or services that you loved (or hated) and share your honest opinions about them. Illegal, pornographic or explicit posts are prohibited and will be removed. Anyone who attempts to post illegal, pornographic or explicit subject matter or links will be permanently banned from the site.

Promotion of other websites, boards or forums is generally not permitted on this site.

Please Think before You Post
We welcome and encourage healthy debate, but personal attacks are not permitted, period.

Abusive communications aimed at sexual orientation, gender, race, color, religious views, national origin, or disability -- will be deleted and posting privileges of the offending poster will be permanently revoked. If you disagree with someone’s post, state your opinion, politely and move forward. It is incredibly impolite to attempt to use board anonymity to vent harass or attack others. And such actions are NOT permitted here. Remember, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

General Online Etiquette
1. Please use appropriate grammar and punctuation.

2. Please use polite language and grammar.

3. Please post only polite subject matter (pornographic, explicit, obscene or vulgar posts,
links, language, graphics or behavior or solicitation is prohibited). Posts should be clean.
Any and all posts that attempt to solicit or offer explicit or X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or other
graphic files will be deleted.

inform others so they understand.
