General OCF Forum Posting Rules and Guidelines
The OCF™ message board is presently a moderated webzine community. We welcome old members, visitors and lurkers, alike (some restrictions may apply)!
Posting privileges are reserved for (previously) registered members (in good standing) only. However, all guests are welcome to browse the information on this site.
Barring down time, registered members have 99% access to all authorized areas of the site.
Forum and chat areas are for positive exchange of ideas and community support and interactions, 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.
Also, all exchanges 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.
Please Do Not allow anyone else to use your account. 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.
Promotion of other websites, boards or forums is generally not permitted on this site.
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.
Information Sharing GuidelinesPlease 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.
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 OCF Etiquette
1. Please use polite language and grammar.
2. 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.
3. Please stay on topic within the thread you are posting in!
4. Please don’t post rudely. Typing in all capital letters (LIKE THIS) is impolite
and is difficult to read. Although, for some individuals with disabilities, typing in all caps (or in all lower case) may be a necessity. If it is necessary for you to use all caps be sure to inform others so they understand.
Loss of posting privileges
This is a private, family friendly website. Any privileges or membership may be revoked without notice.
