Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on The CB Radio Talk Forum. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. General

    1. Warnings
      Most violations will get a warning in a private message from the admin, or the moderators, to the poster and you will be given a chance to correct the issue. If the violation is serious enough you will be banned immediately without consideration. You will reply to this private message, or email, letting them know that you respect their decision, and confirm that you understand the rules of CBRT. Please do so, in a polite and respectful manner, or get banned. #
    2. Debating
      While debating and discussion is fine, as long as it is done in a constructive manner, we will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, or purposeless inflammatory posts to other members or sponsors. Our decision is final in these matters. Discussion of others work or products is fine as long as it doesn't turn into advertising for non-sponsors, or is slanderous in nature. #
    3. Illegal Activity
      Discussion of illegal activities such as software, and other intellectual property violations are not allowed. CBRT cannot be held liable for any action that you, as a member, take of a immoral or illegal nature. #
    4. Outside The Box
      Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted, or abused in any way, shape, or form! #
    5. Banning
      We also reserve the right to ban anyone who willfully violates the forum rules without notification of any sort. Having access to our forums are a privilege and not a right. Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted. We reserve the right to change, or modify, any of the rules on the forum. Use your common sense, if you have to ask if you can post a particular topic. Then you probably shouldn't post that said topic. If you have questions, Then please use the "Contact" admin form on the site. Being a member on this forum is a privilege, and is not a right. This is a private forum, and we do not have to publish everything that is said between the admin / mods of the site. #
  2. Posting

    1. Useless Threads
      Please refrain from posting meaningless threads, one word (or short) non-sense posts, or the such. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. #
    2. Inappropriate Posts
      Advertising (if not an official sponsor), spamming and trolling is not allowed. This includes using the forum email and Private message system to spam other members. We also do not allow posts that are sexual in nature, or violate CBRT community standards (any inappropriate language). The CBRT team shall be the sole arbitrator of what does and what does not violate community standards. This is a family-oriented site, and violators of this rule will be banned. In order to prevent casual swearing, CBRT censors the most inappropriate curse words by replacing them with the word, "**Censored**". Intentionally trying to bypass the swear filter will attract a ZERO TOLERANCE response from the CBRT Moderators, and can result in being banned from the site. We also will not tolerate Obfuscated Swearing! Obfuscation (or beclouding) is the hiding of intended meaning in communication, making communication confusing, willfully ambiguous, and harder to interpret. Swearing in another language is also unacceptable. Content with curse words that are used in the context of a personal attack, or insult will be removed and you will be banned from CBRT. This also goes for all those non-swear words insults like "stupid", "jerk", etc. #
    3. Post Removal
      We reserve the right to remove any posts that can be considered offensive to anyone without prior notice. If you are going to post non-English on these forums, please also post an English Translation of your post. This forum is a English based forum, and we just ask to keep the discussions in English out of respect the the majority of the users of the site that speak English. We do welcome users of all languages, but we do ask that you utilize the different translation websites to translate your language into English. #
    4. Non-Sponsor Links
      Posting links to other CB Radio Forums, or any non-Sponsors (Radio Related) on the site is not allowed. Without our sponsors we wouldn't have this forum, so please do your best to refer anyone to one of the many great sponsors on this site.
