ECF Community Rules

Our community is inclusive, helpful, intelligent and respectful. The standards of behavior we insist on have developed over many years, and are very straightforward. Enforcing them is what makes ECF completely inclusive for everyone, and one of the "best run forums on the web (tm)"

These are the Golden rules.

1. Please behave decently and respectfully to all members.
2. Do not attack, flame or harass our moderators or admins
3. Respect our freedom of expression. This is a privately owned website, and we are exerting our freedom of expression when we insist on high standards of behavior.
4. Some topics are off limit on ECF. We support your fundamental rights to have these conversations, but not in our house. These include: Sexually explicit topics, hate speech of any kind, discussions of illicit drug use.
5. Be humorous, helpful, respectful and enjoy yourself.
6. If you have a commercial interest of any description (what we call a "supplier"), there's a different set of rules you must to adhere to. Please see the "suppliers" FAQ section for more details.

We are open and transparent about how we enforce our rules. You may, if you wish, read our moderation decision tree here. If you feel you have been unfairly moderated, you may contact our administrators via the support system.
