Obinrin Community Guidelines
We encourage members to express their own opinions and to engage in lively debate. However, this shouldn't be at the expense of other people's enjoyment of the Obinrin website.
This should be suitable for readers of all ages.
Specifically, we do not allow:
Ø Offensive language
Ø Personal abuse directed against other members
Ø Members that do not respect the opinion of others
Ø Members that express the same opinion over and over to the same person
Ø Attempts to 'win' an argument
Ø We do not allow requests for money unless the money is to be paid directly to a registered charity.

They may also include details of their business and a link to their web site in their signature which will be included at the bottom of all messages they post.
If you see that a thread has been removed from the forums, it is safe to assume that it didn't meet these guidelines. Please don't attempt to restart the thread or start new threads asking why it was removed. Instead, you can contact us directly.
