FW site rules - Sexual content & Inappriopriate behaviour

Hi Guys and Girls,


Please remember that this site is focused on fishing and we do have a lot of younger members on here so please try and keep the sexual references and swearing to a minimum.  Well, more so, sure we all like having a joke, but just think about who you are having a joke with and also consider the implications of where the joke might end up if the person isn't who you think they are!  In this day and age where cyber boundaries aren't limited, people's intentions can easily be misconstrued and the last thing any one wants is for the police to get involved.


Below is an extract from the site's privacy and copyright statement referring to the rules of being on the site, please try and adhere to them so I don't need to warn or remove your account:


Site Rules
We encourage participation on this site and accept that everyone has an opinion and is able to express them as long as it is not an attack on another person, racially prejudiced, sexually offensive or deemed as unacceptable behaviour by the site moderators. We reserve the right to automatically suspend and ban your account depending upon severity of the incident, as deemed by the site moderators. Any information or images which are deemed illegal will result in an immediate ban and if necessary the appropriate authorities will be contacted.

Just be careful of innuendo too. You might think its not an issue or a biggie, but to the person to whom it implies it may be a completely different story.


We have had complaints from members and in some cases their parents in recent times. Unfortunately we cannot read every single post (the site is just too big) so some things may slip through every now and then. Just because you may read a post containing innuendo or even blatantly against site rules, don;t think its a vote to continue doing it.


If you spot suspect posts, please bring it to the attention of one of the moderator team. Adam Gallash, Colin Hay, Tim or myself.


Its always been a family site, lets keep it that way.

 Guys please remember the site rules, especially swearing. I saw someone say that #@# makes no difference in understanding what your saying, thats true for most people, but it may just be enough to censor that kind of language for the kids that visit this site.



Ive let a lot of stuff slide for a while (and some not deliberately) but I ask you guys to please refrain where possible or censor if really required.
