CollectingBuzz.com invites you to participate in our CHAT and MESSAGE BOARD. These features are for your entertainment, information, education and communication.

In order to maintain a wholesome environment for our users, we have established the following guidelines. Failure to observe these guidelines can result in anything from a warning to termination of user privileges.

Please remember, electronic messages can be harsh. Think twice before you fire off a heated message or reply. This may be a virtual community, but the people here are completely real.

Users of our Chat Rooms and Message Board must not:

► Infringe on anyone's intellectual property rights, including but not limited to any copyright, trademark, rights of publicity, or other proprietary rights.

► Post or transmit any profane, vulgar, repugnant, obscene or sexually explicit language or images, even if masked by other characters.

► Post or transmit anything meant to harass, threaten, embarrass or cause distress or discomfort upon another chat or message board participant, or other individual or group. One such example would be resorting to personal attacks.

► Post or transmit any material that is grossly repugnant to community standards, including blatant expressions of bigotry, racism or hate.

► Attempt to impersonate anyone, including administrators working in an authorized capacity.

► Engage in any activity that is apparently intended to disrupt users enjoyment of our interactive features, including flooding or scrolling (repeatedly entering either meaningless characters, three or more repeated blank lines, the same text three or more times, or consistently repeating text in a chat room).

► Post or transmit any material in ALL CAPS, except for occasional, limited use for specific emphasis.

► (Multiple) post or transmit (spam) any unsolicited advertising or promotional materials. Anyone promoting a site, products or services should identify themselves as such and are encouraged to responsibly participate in conversations in a factual and non-promotional manner.

These guidelines were last revised on October 23, 2005.
