Community Rules.

12.0 About your posts:

12.1 Contributions must be civil and tasteful.
12.1.1 ACC is viewable and usable by people of all ages, sexes, races, religions and locations. Please be mindful of this when posting.
12.2 No disruptive, offensive or abusive behaviour: contributions must be constructive and polite, not mean-spirited or contributed with the intention of causing trouble. This is called Trolling, and will not be tollerated.
12.2.1 ACC is not a place for settling disputes. If you have an issue to resolve do it away from aircadetcentral.net.
12.3 No unlawful or objectionable content: unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, racially offensive or otherwise objectionable material is not acceptable. This includes links to other websites that may hold the aforementioned material.
12.4 Swearing will not be tollerated in any way, shape or form. ACC uses swear filtering to prevent posts contained offensive language. Any attempts to circumvent these filters (ie by using numbers in place of letters or mis-spelling the word) shall be considered a breach of this AUP and action may be taken again the user.
12.5 If you use multiple logins for the purpose of disrupting the community or annoying other users you may have action taken against all of your accounts.
