Section 3. localKicks Board Rules
1. Post with respect and civility. You don't have to agree with someone to afford them the respect to post their thoughts. And you don't have to like someone to be civil to them. If you've come to flame or have an axe to grind, go elsewhere. Attacking other posters will not be tolerated.
2. Each board is focused on specific topics. Please use appropriate boards for your submissions.
3. If you see a post that violates the user agreement, is inappropriate or you have a problem with a post, contact a moderator.
4. Do not post copyrighted material on this board. All other publications works are copyrighted. If you wish to discuss material that is you can post the URL of the material.
5. While most of us are adults, some are not. References to alcohol, drugs and sex are inappropriate. Profanity will not be tolerated and attempts to circumvent the profanity filters will not be tolerated either.
6. Racial, ethnic and sexual slurs are grounds for immediate dismissal. Negative name calling of any kind is inappropriate.
7. Please try to read the first two pages for thread topics before you start a new one. Duplicate threads just drive good ones off the front pages.
8. With the creation of private boards for the discussion of private content, we ask that discussion of these articles remain on that board and not on other boards - which otherwise would defeat the purpose of providing a place for private content.
9. Don't go to other boards, talk smack and link to us. And don't come on here and link to places people are talking smack about us. We don't want a board war. Sure there are times when other boards have interesting content for us to read and that's fine.
