    Terms Of Conduct and Service

    BillsZone.com & UltimateSabres.com

    Terms-of-Service (ToS) - revised 4/18/2008

    These apply to each and every moderator, poster, and staff member.

    1. No pornographic, obscene, graphically disturbing material, or links to such material. The gauge used to determine such material is whether a person would get in trouble if the given image is displayed in a typical office environment, and/or whether an upstanding parent would be comfortable showing that image to a young child. If the answer is no to either question, it’s inappropriate.

    2. No profanity or vulgarities, or attempts to bypass the language filter using alternate spellings of such words.

    3. No racist, sexist, or other derogatory comments referring to sexual preference or orientation.

    4. No Personal attacks or communication that is intended to harass, belittle, humiliate, embarrass, threaten or otherwise demean another poster. If you must vent towards a fellow poster as a result of words exchanged, you may do so via private communication such as e-mail. Veiled attacks directed at another poster and determined obvious by a Bills Zone staff member will be considered an attack. Failure to honor or oblige to requests to leave a poster alone by the said poster or a Bills Zone staff member will be considered a violation of this policy. Conversely, if you feel that your rights as a poster have been violated by another, contact a moderator or staff member with your concerns and we will assist you in resolving the issue.

    5. No blatant or flagrant bashing of the site or message boards. Constructive criticism is encouraged and welcomed when it is made in the proper forum in the “Suggestions” area.

    6. No spam.

    7. No advertisements without prior approval by site management.

    8. No Flames (or posts intended to harassingly antagonize a fellow poster). See Rule 4.

    9. No posting of entire articles/copyrighted material. Posts containing news stories/article segments must also include a URL link to the article where it is originally published at the minimum.

    10. Moderators reserve the right to relocate, remove, or close any postings including but not limited to threads, posts, messages, and images that are deemed inappropriate by the Bills Zone staff in the greater interests of the message board.

    11. Failure to adhere to the Terms of Service will be considered grounds for immediate disciplinary action, including the loss of posting privileges overall or in any particular threads and permanent banning. The Zone will make every reasonable attempt to warn users of TOS violation(s) via PM (private message) and/or the e-mail that the user provided at time of their registration.

    12. Any disagreement with actions taken by the Bills Zone staff may be discussed and appealed privately with the individual or other staff members. Any grievances aired out in the public forums may be considered personal attacks, flagrant bashing of the site, spam, or flames, as indicted in Rules 4, 5, 6, and 8 above.

    13. Any disciplinary actions taken are directed towards the individual offender, not the username. Re-registering under a different username is considered an attempt to circumvent the disciplinary action and may result in further loss of privileges.

    14. Have fun.

    Still can't find the list of banned words. I guess they are so banned, they can't list them.

    Re: Terms Of Conduct and Service

    So posting a link to a Buffalo Bills Podcast is frowned upon?
