Ain't No God Community Rules
Please Note: If you are here to tell us about your religion, please don't. This community is reserved exclusively for people who do not profess religious beliefs. There are many places on the Internet for theists and atheists to argue and debate, this is not one of them. This community is intended as a place of refuge from the constant bombardment with superstitious dogma that goes on in the rest of the world.
You agree, through your use of this community website, that you will not post any material which promotes any religion or other fictitious cause, is otherwise false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You agree not to bash or denounce any person because of their race, creed, national origin, citizenship or lack thereof, sexual orientation, immigration status, gender, or freedom from religious afflictions. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and religious solicitations are also forbidden on this community website. If you post any message claiming that an Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy exists your account may be terminated without warning, your IP address might be blocked from accessing this server, and the rest of us would certainly make fun of you.
You agree, and you indicate your agreement by creating an account or continuing to use this community website, that you will not post any messages suggesting that any Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy exists, or that people should pay any attention to persons afflicted with religious beliefs when they claim to be authorized to dictate the required behavior of others.
Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this community website to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. To the extent that messages here deny the existence of an Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy, they are obviously correct. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this community, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this community website's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of the forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this community website reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.
You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this community website, any related websites to this community, its staff, and its subsidiaries. The owners of this community website also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or any other related information collected on this service) in the event of a formal complaint or legal action arising from any situation caused by your use of this website.
You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason. We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.
After you register and login to this community website, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable. Any account with a website linking to any site considered disreputable, pornographic, dishonest, or pharmaceutical will be deleted immediately without warning or recourse.
Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this community or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement or if an Administrator has the slightest suspicion that you are in fact an obnoxious spambot. If an Administrator slightly suspects that you are a spambot your account will be deleted, your email address and IP address will be blocked and you may also be banned from all of the web sites hosted on this web server.
The administrators of this community website will contact law enforcement authorities of our own volition and actively encourage and assist in the prosecution of any person or the operator of any automated process attempting to use this site to promote or conduct illegal activity. We will go beyond our legal requirements and actively pursue any criminals attempting to exploit this system or our users.
