Post by STMTH »

The L Chat
General Forum Rules

The L Chat is an online forum that is frequented by and serves the historically marginalized population that is the lesbian community. As such, the forum does not tolerate violence, harassment, hate speech, or dissenting views on lesbians and same-sex relationships between women. Registered users of the forum are expected to abide by the above and are understood to be members of previously defined community. Membership and use of this forum is at the discretion of the administration, and may be withdrawn without prior notice if found to be in violation of any of the above.

Topics focusing on heterosexual relationships, both confirmed and speculative, and male celebrities (outside of their involvement in ongoing legal, political, or otherwise newsworthy topics that are current events) are beyond the scope of this forum and shall be removed by moderators. The vast majority of the internet is available to freely discuss such topics. The L Chat is a private, moderated forum where comments may be subject to removal for violation of any of the above.

The opinions expressed on this forum are those of the authors. They do not purport to reflect the opinions or views of The L Chat or its operator(s).

The information that appears on this site is provided "as is," without warranty of any kind. The L Chat does not accept any responsibility or liability for the accuracy, content, completeness, legality, or reliability of the information contained on this website.

No warranties, promises and/or representations of any kind, expressed or implied, are given as to the nature, standard, accuracy or otherwise of the information provided in this website nor to the suitability or otherwise of the information to your particular circumstances.

The L Chat cannot and will not guarantee that this website is free from computer viruses or anything else that has destructive properties.

The L Chat shall not be liable for any loss or damage of whatever nature (direct, indirect, consequential, or other) whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, which may arise as a result of your use of (or inability to use) this site, or from your use of (or failure to use) the information on this site. This forum provides links to other websites owned by third parties. The content of such third party sites is not within our control, and The L Chat cannot and will not take responsibility for the information or content thereon. Links to such third party sites are not to be taken as an endorsement by The L Chat of the third party site, nor any products promoted, offered or sold on the third party site, nor that such sites are free from computer viruses or anything else that has destructive properties. We cannot and do not take responsibility for the collection or use of personal data from any third party site. In addition, we will not accept responsibility for the accuracy of third party advertisements.

These rules are subject to revision at any time.

Moderators

Moderating threads on The L Chat is an unofficial, voluntary position that may be available to users of the forum. The L Chat operator(s) are not responsible for actions taken by the moderators. The L Chat may change the features or abilities associated with moderating from time to time without prior notice. We reserve the right to revoke or limit a user’s ability to moderate at any time, and for any reason or no reason, including for a breach of these Terms.

If you choose to moderate a thread:

You agree to follow the Moderator Rules that are posted to the Staff category of this forum;
You agree that when you receive reports related to your thread, that you will take action to moderate by removing content and/or escalating to the admins for review;
You may not represent that you are authorized to act on behalf of The L Chat;
You may not enter into any agreement with a third party on behalf of The L Chat, or any threads that you moderate, without our written approval;
You may not perform moderation actions in return for any form of compensation or favor from third parties;
If you have access to non-public information as a result of moderating a thread, you will use such information only in connection with your performance as a moderator; and
You may create and enforce rules for the threads you moderate, provided that such rules do not conflict with host Terms, our General Forum Rules, and the Moderator Rules.
The L Chat administrator(s) reserve the right, but has no obligation, to overturn any action or decision of a moderator if administrator believes that such action or decision is not in the interest of The L Chat or The L Chat community of users.

Rule addendum effective immediately:
The L Chat has in practice encouraged users not to engage Internet trolls. Some threads explicitly reference this long-standing practice. It is to be observed for the entire Forum and all threads, whether or not it is explicit in adopted thread rules, that users are not to engage trolls. Not observing this rule may result in disciplinary action not limited to warnings, bans, and removal of content. /addendum
