The NBN Forum is dedicated to providing a free and open environment for all to diwscuss issues such as the the NBN, politics, and technology. To accommodate this free and open discusssion the staff team finds it best to implement rules & guidelines that will give moderators and users an idea of the best way to post on our forum, we do not intend to over-moderate these forums but its best to have an idea of the best way forward.

Rule 1: Respect

The basis of open discussion is respect towards each other, this respect should be held at all times, even if people have a different opinion, we accept that in almost all cases discussions can get heated, this rule is not intended to silence conversation.

1A: "heated" discussion is allowed on this forum provided that A) it isnt all your posts B) Its constructive to the discussion
1B: People with a different opinion of the majority also have the right to discuss and post their opinions. Moderators and admins should not remove these posts if they simply disagree with them.

Rule 2: Spam

Spamming is not allowed, spamming as defined "Posting 'useless' crap on forums over and over or the act of linking irrelevant links, self advertising or any other repeatedly malicious act."

Rule 3: Trolling

Trolling is not allowed on this forum, trolling as defined is "a person who sows discord on the Internet by stating arguments or upsetting people intentionally & maliciously, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an oncline community with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion.

Any trolling that meets the above definition will be removed and in cases where the account is repeatedly trolling, the staff team reserve the right to remove the account without appeal.

Rule 4: Right To Appeal

The NBN Forum and its staff team believe in due-process if your account is suspended or rmeoved you have the explict right to appeal a staff decision.

If you submit an appeal and its voted down by the staff team then your appeal is officially denied.
