Some of you may have noticed that Colonol Dekker has been banned. He posted a series of disgusting images in the "Post your pic" thread yesterday. The less said, the better. Suffice it to say that it was a flagrant and unapologetic violation of the forum rules, and has been dealt with accordingly. He has been issued a permanent, universal ban, and is no longer welcome at Hard Light Productions.
While we try to provide a free (in both senses of the word) and open forum for discussion here, we have rules that must be followed. For the most part, they are common-law rules and are not written down, but we have tried to establish guidelines to let people know what we expect of them. These guidelines have been posted in a sticky thread
for several months now and can be viewed at any time. We have room for a wide variety of behaviors and opinions here, and all we ask is that you use a little common sense.
Hopefully, Colonol Dekker will serve as an example so that these kinds of bannings can be minimized. We have not had to ban someone for pornography or shock images for several months now, but if the line is crossed, the rules will be enforced.
This thread will remain open for discussion of the circumstances surrounding the banning or of the rules themselves. If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to post.
