RULES OF LoD:
All the Rules can be summed up in one Rule:
DON'T BE AN ASSHAT.
And the crime of
BEING AN ASSHAT
will be determined by the the LoD Judges and/or Jury - Admins and Mods. For those who don't understand what
BEING AN ASSHAT
means, here are the specifics:
I. SERIOUS STUFF (will result in an immediate and permanent ban):
BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD.
If you're not at least 18 years old, GO AWAY. If we think you're not at least 18 years old, we're going to ask for proof of age. If we don't like your proof of age, your account will be terminated. Any such age problems will be reported by the Mods and settled by the Admins.
NO CHILD PORN OF ANY KIND.
Links, pictures, cartoons, drawings, movies, erotic stories, humor, or any of the previous in which a child is placed in a situation which could be construed as sexual. This includes pictures from or links to sites such as BARELYLEGAL or GIRLSGONEWILD, or any site which claims to have models who look like teenagers. We will delete your posts and you will be permanently banned on your first offense and reported to the authorities. Any such age problems will be reported by the Mods and settled by the Admins.
NO BESTIALITY OF ANY KIND.
Links, pictures, cartoons, drawings, movies, erotic stories, humor, or any of the previous in which an animal is placed in a situation which could be construed as sexual. Any such postings will be reported and settled by the Mods.
If we feel a threat is serious, we will ban you on your first offense and notify the authorities. "Threats" includes harassment of another member via PM. If you have to harass someone, do it right out in the open where we all can enjoy it. You CAN say "I wish you were dead." You CAN say "I want to punch you in the nose so hard it makes your ass bleed." You CANNOT say "Next Tuesday I am coming to your house with a gun and shoot you until your own mother wouldn't recognize you." Any such posts will be reported by the Mods and settled by the Admins.
II. GENERAL FORUM CONDUCT STUFF (will result in Cautions, Warnings, and Bans):
NO PERSONAL INFORMATION.
No posting of another member's personal information (full name, address, phone number, credit card info, and the like). No posting your own personal information on the forum. No posting PMs. KEEP PRIVATE BUSINESS PRIVATE.
NO POSTING OF ANY CURRENT OR FORMER MEMBER OF LOD'S PERSONAL PICTURES.
Unless you have direct consent from the original poster/member. And we will ask if you have such consent. This includes pics/vids already posted on LoD and those obtained elsewhere. Although technically all these pics and vids belong to LoD once they're posted, LoD prefers to think of them as the possessions of those who posted them.
This is specifically intended to forbid linking or posting of pictures into Verbal Abuse without the owner of the picture's direct written consent. And in this case, the written consent must be forwarded prior to the Verbal Abuse posting to either Zippy or Wolfbitch.
NO POSTING NAKED SEXY (OR UNSEXY) PICTURES OF YOURSELF OUTSIDE OF THE PROPER SECTIONS.
NO FLAMING OUTSIDE VERBAL ABUSE.
Includes subtle barbs, snide comments and basically anything intended to insult or piss someone off.
POST MATERIAL IN THE CORRECT SECTIONS.
NO DUPLICATE ACCOUNTS.
They will be deleted as soon as they are detected.
NO SPAMMING OR HACKING OF THE BOARD.
NO NASTY REMARKS ABOUT MEMBERS' CHILDREN AND PARENTING SKILLS (OR LACK THEREOF).
III. FORUM-SPECIFIC RULES (will result in Cautions, Warnings, and Bans):
GAMES FORUM - DO NOT HIJACK THE GAMES THREADS.
If you don't know how to play, then don't post.
DEBATE FORUM - DON'T BE AN ASSHAT.
The Debate forum is specifically designed to be on topic with no flaming. Humor is okay, sarcasm is not. See the Debate Forum for more specific rules.
DARK ROOM FORUM
- personally taken pictures only. See the Dark Room for more specific rules.

Yes, you who must leave everything that you cannot control
It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul
Well, I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned
When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned
