I posted this on another thread, but it bears repeating here, to all those thinking about registering to participate in the Forum:
While this Forum is free to the public to READ, which in fact Bob insists upon so that anyone interested may freely share in the knowledge and information here, the simple FACT remains that the privilege of being an active registered user/poster/participant is not something just anybody has any "right" to have. This Forum is Bob's personal property. In fact, it is not even hosted on his company, Pallasart's, servers. While we welcome all genuine users, those who threaten, disrupt, conspire, attack, disparage, libel, attack, spam, harass, "flame", slander, libel, disrespect others and disregard our rules are NEVER welcome here and we are under no obligation to allow them access to this private space, nor to tolerate their behavior once here.
I have said it before and is worth repeating: Registering to use the forum is akin to asking Bob to come into his private home. Users must respect this place and Bob, me, all the Mods and all other users and our Rules just AS IF a guest in his residence. Period. If you don't, you simply are not welcomed to participate. Notice Bob's generosity however, that NO ONE is ever prevented from reading the Forum, to freely and without restraint access the information we provide.
