The Left claim to have an Open Mind to other views, then are entirely shocked, dismayed, and offended that there actually are other views.

What would the Left do without Anecdotals or Snark

"Terms Of Service" has been changed to "Tolerant Terms Of Service.

The new meaning reflects the way the terms are handled. That is to mean: With a bit of "Tolerance."
However be aware that this forum does not claim to be fair or unbiased and you enter or join this forum knowing and accepting this.

While other Chat Forums may enforce a Zero Tolerance attitude, being a Conservative I would prefer to scale that back and allow a little leeway to everyone. If things start to get out of hand then we will address that as it happens.

   
Also: By giving you foreknowledge that I (as Admin or user) am only human, unable to monitor 24 hours per day, and promising in advance that in your eyes I will likely appear to fall short of being either fair, equal, or non-partisan, I give you the following Tolerant Terms Of Service (tTOS).

You should also remember that you too are a Human Being and that you will be conversing with other Human Beings. Just because you log on under an alias and are basically anonymous to most of the other participants, does not mean you can act like a child, or a complete ass and toss out vulgarity and insults on a whim. I started this Forum in the hopes to bring people together after that dreadful day on 9/11. But I cannot, and will not, be the babysitter to people who are supposed to be adults. So please - Act like Adults.
 
Membership to this forum is by invitation only. By that we mean; Everyone on the Internet is invited to join our community, however, the Admin(s) of this forum reserve the Right to Limit or Revoke that invitation on an all, or individual, basis with or without explanation. 
 
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is knowingly false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written or verbal consent from the owner of the copyrighted material.

You should realize during a debate or verbal encounter, that if your verbal skills or knowledge about a subject being discussed is so weak that you need to resort to name calling or vulgarity, then it is obvious you've already lost the argument.

Resorting to bringing a persons family (ie: parents, siblings, relatives) into the discussion in a demeaning manner is forbidden. You may or may not receive a warning.  If you are smart you will consider this your warning.  Your post, and possibly entire thread will be deleted..  Further occurrences could cause you to take a harsh and sudden break from this forum.

 
Spam, Flooding, Advertisements, Chain letters, Gambling, Pyramid schemes, and Solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.
 

You agree to give notification if any of the aforementioned is posted. You agree by being a member or a guest to this forum that it is up to you to view or click away from posts containing anything you object to. You attest you are an adult over the age of 18, and if not you are in violation in being here. You must be 18 years or older to enter this site, whether as a member, or as a guest.


You also agree that anything posted on this website, or forum, if not already copyright by others, is copyright to this forum and to the originating poster. You may not copy or distribute any material from this website or forum without written consent from the poster or the owner of this forum.
 
To better clarify the above sentence:
While it is perfectly acceptable, and recommended,  to quote the current post you are responding to, (for clarity) it is "not" OK to copy and save someone else's responses (posts) from this forum without the expressed permission of the author or the admin.

 
Note:  This is a highly trafficked Internet forum. We offer a High Degree of Freedom of Speech (some think too high) while still attempting to not sway over the fence too far in either direction.  The final decision rests on the forum administrator with some degree of input from current forum members.  Said "Freedom of Speech" does not grant you, or anyone else the Right to abuse others with that speech.    Said "Freedom of Speech" does not grant you, or anyone else the Right to be vulgar beyond "normal" tones.
 
As such we cannot and do not guarantee you will not observe posts, or threads that are false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, or appearing invasive of a person's privacy. it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor each and every posted message, and as such, we are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented.

You agree that the posted messages express only the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner.

 We cannot, and do not, promise that you will never be offended. This forum has many people with many types of mindsets. Therefore, if you require a safer forum that is more Politically Correct, or chaperoned; then perhaps you should reconsider your decision to register here or to enter this forum.

With that said; anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within their own time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, so it would be common sense that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately, or as soon as you would like. This policy applies to member profile information as well. Remember, it is your sole responsibility to determine what your own viewing habits will be. We do have an Ignore function. If you find someone offensive you are instructed to stop reading their posts and to use the ignore option immediately.
 
 
You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, staff, and/or subsidiaries.

The owner(s) of this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this forum.
 
The owner(s) of this forum also reserve the Right to NOT reveal Identities of members to this Forum.

tTOS Continued
 
You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You agree that because this is an unsecure forum no part of your identification is ever regarded as safe. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.   
 
After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.
 
 
Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded and visibly posted inside your post, which, for your security, only the Admin can see, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. 
 
 
Also note that this software places a cookie, (a text file containing bits of information such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
 
Images and Video's on this website are stored and or reproduced with respect to the doctrine of "Fair Use" as described on http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html for non-profit, educational, or entertainment purposes.

All Audio and Video is the property of the respective authors.


You agree that these terms or agreements may be changed, added to, reworded or completely overhauled at any time, for any reason, without regard to subject matter, without prior notice and that it is up to you to read  periodically to familiarize yourself with any changes. If at any time you have questions or difficulties with any part you will contact those responsible and work on the issue "privately".
 
Typing in all caps is considered yelling. We do enough of that without constant caps lock, therefore constantly posting in all caps will not be welcome in this forum.  Switching back and forth in an attempt to subvert this rule will also not be welcome. In other words; learn to use proper caps in the majority of your posts.

(Highly derogatory) Racial words and/or foul language will not be used in Topic Headings. It is also "suggested" that members moderate themselves with common sense and limited usage "within posts".  However, moderator/admin reserves right to final judgment and right to delete.

As stated above Topic headlines will remain free of foul language and Personal attacks.      (added 3-20-11)
(do not misinterpret this to mean if your name is mentioned that it is a personal attack. I expect our members to be an adult and not a whining child)

Call-outs, or using someone's name in the Topic line in a disparaging fashion, will not be tolerated.  Attempting to get someone's attention by using their name in the topic line for friendly debate; may or may not be considered a "Call-Out". 
 
The Posting pictures of current members, whether from facebook or any other source, without consent of the member will be consider Cyber Stalking and could result in your being permanently Banned.

You agree that Words within topics or posts deemed overly inappropriate or antagonizing may be deleted or changed at the discretion of the administrator.

You agree that bad grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and/or spelling will not void the gist or intentions of this tTOS.

To clarify further on "Freedom of Speech":
While we do attempt to allow as much freedom of speech as possible on this board, more (we believe) than most boards on the internet, you must be aware that "Freedom of Speech" is not a license to say anything you want. You have no rights to: freedom of Libel, freedom of false accusations, freedom of threats, freedom of spreading false information, freedom to aggravate for aggravation sake, or anything else not associated with "normal" forum chatter...

The Admin(s)/moderator(s) of this forum WILL retain the right to chastise either publicly or privately, delete or edit posts, delete or limit any account with or without explanation, at any time.

* Again:  You agree that this policy, or these rules, can change at any time.
 
This tTos is copyright to AesopsRetreat.com. Any forum or website may copy and use this TOS or "tTos" as their own as long as long as "AesopsRetreat.com" is mentioned as its origination. 
 
Donations
This Forum costs me money to run. In other words; each minute you are here using this forum for whatever purpose it costs me money for you to do that. I don't mind this, it is my hobby. My only hobby. And being on Social Security it uses up money I could spend elsewhere. I don't have ADS simply because they slow down the system and I have little to no control over what ADS come through, so I get no relief in the form of cash from that. So if anyone wishes to help out by reimbursing me for a portion of their time on the system I would be very grateful.  I have added a "Donation" Button just for that purpose for those who wish to help out.
(Naming it a Reimbursement or 'GIFT' button would have just been tacky.)

Finally: This web site is not intended to replace professional, medical, or legal advice.
