Potential Discussion Topics:

I didnít do it! Why are you bothering with me when there are REAL violations?
Unfortunately, are moderators arenít psychic (give it time). We canít be everywhere at once and we do get things wrong from time to time. If you have questions regarding a warning, please reply to the moderator with respectful questions to why the warning was given. Alternatively, ask the One Stop Poetry team in the ďFeedbackĒ forum.
General Posting Guidelines
Common violations to avoid:
Flaming & trolling: Posts directed at another member which are hateful, abusive, or intentionally inflammatory are considered flaming. Making intentionally inflammatory or provocative posts to incite responses from other members is considered trolling.
Spam: Posts that are gibberish, feature advertisements, or have little or no content are considered spam.
Sexually explicit content: Posting, requesting, distributing, or offering sexually explicit material is not permitted anywhere on the One Stop Poetry forums. Sexually explicit content includes explicit photographs, text, artwork, video, or cybersex conversations. Seriously. If you canít keep your pants on, keep it to private messages or e-mail.
