|The Tree Of Liberty Rules|
Forum Terms of Service:
THE MATERIALS IN THIS SITE ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
Our goal in creating this site was to have a place on the internet where one could post what they want, when they want. However, this being the internet and the fact that they are people out there who like to push the limits, we felt that we had to enact these rules.
1: If it is illegal, do not post it. When we say illegal, we mean in The United States of America. Examples of this would include topics like: "How do I make my AR full-auto?", "Anyone want to buy a stolen gun?", "I want (or I am going) to kill ", or "Where can I get grenades?". This would also include threats of violence against someone.
2: No spam. If you have a product to sell, post it in the "The Marketplace". This is the only forum that you should post items for sale. Any topic offering goods for sale or trade will be moved to the "The Marketplace" forum.
3: No posting of anyones personal information (for example, full name (meaning last name), email address, address, phone numbers, etc) without the owners permission.
4: You are responsible for what you post.
5: Pornography (including links to) is not permitted in ANY forum
6: In recognition of the time spent building an online reputation and relationships, THE SITE will honor usernames from other boards and ensure that they are only utilized by the appropriate persons. Individuals who have their usernames misappropriated should contact the administrator and or moderators to investigate the improper use of the username in question. Further, creating an account that sounds like someone elses real account and/or is a play on someone elses account is not permitted.
7: THE SITE is pleased to honor the First Amendment, and stands for the proposition that if its not illegal, you can post it. However, This is a PRIVATE community. By acknowledging these rules you accept that peaceful and cooperative behavior is expected, and will be enforced. This site does not welcome, nor will it permit 'mudslinging'. Furthermore, we know that our users understand the limitations imposed by bandwidth. Senseless repetitous posts will be deleted and your posting privilidges revoked.
8: There are forums within the website that some people may find objectionable - specifically THE ALLEY, which is an unmoderated forum. If youre of thin skin, or under 18 years old, dont go to that forum.

10: We strongly support the sacrifices that our veterans, law enforcement, and firefighters have made in their service to our country. That being said, if you are found to be falsely claiming to be former or active duty military, a law enforcement official, or a firefighter/emt, your account here will be cancelled without notice.
11: This site's intended audience is adults. Should you feel the desire to post topics that would better be discussed on the playground of a middle school, we ask that you refrain from posting these topics here. We dont really want to know (nor do we care) how big your genitals are. Should you make a posts that would fall into this category, they will be trashed - repeated posts of this nature may result in your account being terminated.

14: OPSEC. We strongly support our troops and the job they are doing. While we fully support the freedom of speech, we will also takes steps to prevent material from being posted on our site that may be considered an OPSEC violation. We have a staff member whos job it is to review posts for OPSEC type material. Should he find something that he considers a possible violation of OPSEC, he will ask you for your source. If you source is a nationally recogized media outlet or official press release/statement (or similar), no action will be taken.

17: Posts that are of a racist nature are handled on a case by case basis. Should you make a post and/or reply which is deemed to be nothing more than racist in nature, it will be trashed. If you continue to make posts of this nature, your account will be deleted.
