Okay, this forum has been the target of trolls and flames and fakeposts in the past. That will not be tolerated here, and you will be executed with extreme prejudice, and without warning.

For those of you who don't know, the Rondell's Club is basically the "I have a problem and I want to talk about in a serious manner" forum. As such, we have to make sure people don't mess around in here.

Do not:

1) Flame people (this includes the thread creator and any subsequent replies). This includes telling people to "just get over it" or providing negative criticism. Don't feel afraid to give someone "tough love" if they're very obviously just being whiny (keeping in mind that "tough love" isn't always that effective, and must be accompanied by decent criticism to be effective). Don't be afraid of coming off as flaming if you're just trying to be tough. I can tell the difference, don't worry. If a flamer comes about, don't jump on him/her. That will just derail and up the thread more. Just ignore/report and let the moderators deal with it. Again, though, this only applies to obvious flames. I'll let it slide if it's borderline (unless a moderator deems otherwise). If you're frequently toeing the line, you'll be dealt with.

2) Fakepost. Obvious fakeposts will be dealt with. If your problem sounds like a fakepost, but I'm not sure, I'll monitor it. Back a few years when it was late and night and I was sick to my stomach with distress, I called one of those help lines and I was so incoherent I was accused of pulling a prank. It's not a good feeling. Regardless, as I said, intentional fake posts will be treated as flames and dealt with accordingly.

3) Encourage bad behaviour, such as viiolence, utter disrespect, recreational druug use or anything that is obviously not healthy behaviour.

4) Whine, whine, whine, whine. I understand when you have a problem, it feels better to just go on and on whining about it. I'm guilty of it sometimes, but I also realize that it makes the people who try to help you feel useless and bad and annoyed. Whining can be subjective, but generally I'd define it as posting a problem, getting replies, and then just saying the same thing over again, getting more replies, and just continuing to whine without a visible effort and fixing the problem. Another example of whining is telling everyone that tries to help that they "just don't get it." Maybe sometimes there's a misunderstanding, but more often than not, when I hear that, it seems to be whining.

5) Ignore moderators. Sometimes you'll just do something not clearly defined here and you'll be told to stop it. Like any other section of the forum, if you don't obey, you're going to be punished.

Again, don't feel afraid to post here. It's not going to be a shoooting range here. You will only be banned for obvious attempts to make other people feel worse. Telling someone to use meth or whining repeatedly won't get you banned, only spoken to (unless it gets to the point where it's a major problem). If you're not sure if what you're doing is okay, just ask a moderator (preferably me) and I'll try to get back to you quickly.

Also, though this should be obvious, any status you have here doesn't make you immune to these rules.
