This means that if you're going to act like a twit, you face suspension and/or banning. Use common sense, don't be a jerk, don't troll people.
*** Update as of 7/8, this appears to be a difficult concept for people, so I'm getting harsh, if you do act trollish, you'll be faced with a 2 day suspension to start, further penalities will apply depending on how far over the line you stepped ***
Update 11/3/07 "First Posts" Posting "First," "In on the ground floor," "this thread will be epic," etc. Clogs up really interesting and good threads and makes it difficult to read them. Please stop doing this, I will be deleting these posts as I see them. If you do it in a really stupid way (like the guy who posted "first" in the thread about the poker player who was recently shot dead in an underground cardroom, prepare to find yourself temp-banned). --jman220 A note about pros: This forum benefits from pros being willing to post here and share their experiences. This means there will be a slight double standard in term of what will be tolerated wrt abuse tossed in their direction. This shouldn't be a problem if you can be an adult.
Links to/Request for Torrents: It's not kosher per 2p2 policy. If you do it from here on out, your thread will be deleted and your account will be at a minimum suspended.
Ads/pimping your website/radio show: 2p2 sells add space, as such we don't like people getting it for free on the forums. This means that you can't link to your blog/site/show. If you want to link to somebody elses's blog, that's probably going to be fine, but we'll be liberal about removing links that appear spammy.
RICKROLLS: If you start a new thread with a rickroll, you will be suspended and the thread will be nuked. I will also hit on your mother. If you make a rickroll inside an existing thread, it had better be good or it will get deleted and I will consider suspending you.
DEATH THREATS/WISHES: Auto 2 day ban. Don't do it, 2p2 hates it no matter how funny you think it is.
Postin' stuff from other news sources: Links are good, full posts of articles break copy right law and make Mason cry tears of rage.
The Jman220 "Beautiful Butterfly" Rule: If you unnecessarily throw out insults ([censored], moron, jerk, etc. etc), you risk me editing your post and changing it to effeminate sounding imagery in cute colors.
BUSTO JOKE RULE: If you make a "XXXX is Busto" post, it had better be funny by the standards of the mod that's reading it, or it's nukesville.
Don't dodge the censor: Don't get cute, just swear like the potty mouth you are and let the censor filter do its thing. Also, don't post images that contain censored words.
NSFW LINKS: Better be labled, or that's a paddlin'
READING THIS POST RULE: You should do it, if you haven't and break a rule stated here, I will likely suspend you, you won't know why, 'cause you haven't read the sticky, but you'll be encouraged to do so in your ban message!
