OTHER GUIDELINES YOU MAY LIKE TO KNOW
How can I be a better poster?
Post in a forum where the subject is relevant by please putting posts where they belong. Contribute in a constructive way.
Comment on the post not the poster.
Please do not respond to someone's point with personal attacks – irrespective of how you feel about their opinions.
Please stay on the topic of their post, not on the person who posted it.
If someone abuses you, don’t respond back: just report the post and our moderators will check it out. If you decide to abuse them back, you will probably both be warned or banned.
Manners and respect go a long way.
Please do not use abusive language and content: that’s not the sort of culture we have or want on MummyPages.
But what about my freedom of speech?
This is a private forum so as such there is no right to freedom of speech here.
Enjoy yourself and enjoy the site.
Don’t take everything too seriously, so someone on the internet disagrees with you. Ok, *shrug*.
