Terms of Service
I. Membership and Admissions
A. Hosting Post operates under a closed membership policy. Each accepted member is entitled to one, and only one, username. If you are determined to be using multiple usernames, you will be required to retain only one. A second offense earns a temporary suspension of all related accounts. If you evade a suspension by registering a new username, the suspension will become a permanent ban.
B. Be aware that access using a free email account is heavily restricted. You cannot register with a free email on your own. Hosting Post strongly recommends email provided by your ISP, college, or other such establishments. Hosting Post will not disclose email addresses to spam providers. Your email address will always be hidden unless you choose to post it publicly.
II. Expected Behavior
Hosting Post is a place to hold civil discussions about any and all the aspects of Khmer life. The Chatterbox is available for general discussion, but follows the same principals and terms for acceptable material. Heated debates on the communities are welcome, as long as they abide by the established guidelines. If an administrator or moderator sees that a thread or poster violates these guidelines, the thread may be closed or deleted and posters may be permanently or temporarily banned from the community. Please keep in mind that there is no tenure granted on this community -- your post count or association with other posters does not protect you from being banned.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use Hosting Post to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, demeaning, derogatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise in violation of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and are punishable on the first offense. It is recommended that cursing be held to a minimum, as it does not promote civil conversation. Foul language in the form of insults directed towards other community members may result in a ban.
While everyone has the right to an opinion, it is important to at least attempt to register it in a civil manner. Deliberate attempts at sidetracking constructive discussion by acting in a manner determined to deliberately seek negative attention from other community members is subject to warnings from the community staff. Accounts determined to have been created for the sole purpose of trolling are subject to permanent bans. Note that a member may be banned due to their trends. Bans are not always issued due to one action, but may be the result of a history of lesser misdemeanors. Use common sense to determine what is or is not allowed -- if you think that what you are about to post might not be acceptable, it makes sense to think of another way to put forth your views. Activities that are objectionable include (but are not limited to):
* Deliberate and inaccurate thread titles
Images of a sexual or profane nature are discouraged. Images presenting exposed genitalia, bared buttocks, and/or female nipple/areola are unacceptable. If it is inappropriate for daytime broadcast American television, you should not post it on Hosting Post. However, common sense and a "safe-for-work" rule should be the primary considerations. Also, spamming the community with the same image is not allowed and will result in thread closure or deletion and a possible ban.
Please note that advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are inappropriate and will be removed promptly. Multiple postings of the same message will also be removed. Bans may be issued accordingly.
III. Moderation Policy
A. Moderation of the Hosting Post Communities is not by committee. All decisions with regards to thread closure and movement, permanent and temporary bans, and membership issues are made by the Hosting Post Administration and are final. That being said, constructive criticisms and suggestions are welcome, provided they are directed to Hosting Post Administration via our Contact Form.
B. Considering the real-time nature of Hosting Post, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, and not necessarily the views of this community or any entity associated with this community. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately using our Contact Form. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if a removal is deemed necessary. However, this is a manual process. Please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
C. Although we cannot review every message posted, and are not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold Hosting Post harmless with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).
D. We reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
E. No posts should be made regarding your opinion of another user's actions or behavior. You may not discuss the rules and regulations of this board on the community. Any and all discussions regarding these matters should be discussed by EMAIL ONLY.
Registration to this community is free of charge. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed above. Also be aware that these terms are subject to change at any time without notification.
