years of age”. Follow the instructions from there.
2. All forums may be viewed and read by the public, however you MUST
register as a member in order to post to or reply to any posts. This
is done for “crowd control” purposes and to prevent undesirable
members from returning.
3. When you register, you will be asked to provide a username and
password. Usernames that we feel are inflammatory, vulgar,
promotional, or rude will be removed. Signing up a username that is a
obvious domain name or product name or service/trademark name will be

This actually does not mean anything useful and carries no weight
whatsoever in regard to knowledge or privileges – it is just the way
the software is set up and is meant to be something fun, nothing more.
Please do not post excessively for the sole reason of increasing your
post number or rank, as that is absolutely pointless, since we can
adjust your post number at any time.
6. The board is VERY HEAVILY monitored and has many security features
in place. We have a very low tolerance for people/groups not abiding
to these terms and WE DO NOT GIVE SECOND CHANCES TO ANYONE, as we just
do not have the time. ONE infraction is grounds for permanent
suspension from the board, with NO opportunity to return. Here are
some items that may be considered ground for suspension of membership
a. Links to adult content, pages with links to
adult content, near adult content (including model and swimsuit
sites), or messages describing anything against the law will be
removed as soon as possible. Any discussion of those is off topic
and your membership privilege will be suspended.
b. Foul language – we have an extensive list of word censors
activated. Any attempt to use an unacceptable word results in you
post being “beeped”. After a small number of “beeps”, your
membership privilege is suspended.
c. Press releases, newsletters, web pages, or copyrighted content
may NOT be inserted into posts. Minor fair use excerpts of less than
one paragraph (4 sentences) may be used if the content is publicly
available on the internet. All other forms of inserted content from
press releases, newsletters, web pages, or any other copyrighted
content placed into messages will be removed without exception. A
link to the content is acceptable and appropriate.

pointpleasantbeach.com forums. There are no exceptions to this rule.

and will be edited out.
