<span style=“font-size:13px;”><ol><li>This is a public forum that allows members to post as they please. Some topics may address subjects not suitable for readers under the age of 16. All messages posted express the views of the author, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the owners and administrators of this site. Whatever you post is your own responsibility!</li>
<li>Don’t post messages that are obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, or that violate any laws.  We will permanently ban all users who do so.</li>
<li>If we receive a complaint that a post violates the law (such as copyright or defamation laws), we will delete the post, if we agree with the complainant. However, please don’t cry libel if someone is merely stating an opinion. Remember that libel only applies to statements presented as fact. </li>
<li>No postings of a commercial nature are allowed, unless approved in advance by the administrators of the site.</li>
<li>Don’t write your posts in all CAPITAL LETTERS. This is considered shouting. Also, standard English spelling and grammar are preferred, though not required.</li>
<li>Don’t use the forum as a private chatroom. If you have a message that’s intended for only one other person, please send it via private message. (Note:  Members are free to chat with each other in the off-topic chit chat area. This rule is intended to deter people who might be tempted to log on, chat exclusively with their friend, and never participate in any way with other forum members.)</li>
<li>Write informative titles that let other readers know what your post is about. For instance, “Cool link” or “Check this out” are not informative titles.</li>
<li>Please cite your sources. If posting about a news story in the “In the news” section, provide a link to the story, if possible. Saying
