Terms of Use

Participants on BadWeatherBikers.com (BadWeB) agree to affirm and honor the following:

Buells ROCK!

I am a Buell Motorcycle Enthusiast and wish to contribute positively to and participate thoughtfully in discussions on BadWeatherBikers.com (BadWeB)! I understand that BadWeB is a family-oriented open public community of Buell enthusiasts.

By registering for participation in this Buell Motorcycle Enthusiasts' discussion board/forum I hereby agree to honor and abide by all of the following absolutely and in its entirety.

I will not post profane or vulgar language, nor will I engage in personal attacks nor in malicious derision in any form of other users of the board. I agree to treat with respect and courtesy all members of this online Buell enthusiasts' community. I realize that there is never any justification to violate this policy, and that if I do, I may forfeit my BadWeB posting privileges.

I will honor without question, debate, or argument any/all custodian/admin request(s) concerning the content and/or decorum of my contributions on the forum. I realize that there is never any justification to violate this policy, and that if I do, I may forfeit my BadWeB posting privileges. Basically, the BadWeB custodians prefer to enjoy BadWeB rather than argue with indignant or disgruntled folks.

I will not post any content to BadWeB or hyperlinks to other web pages that one would hesitate to expose in the workplace or to family and children. If it is not appropriate for showing on daytime public television or on a public billboard, it is likely not acceptable to post on BadWeatherBikers.com. I will honor this policy and understand that should I fail to do so, I may forfeit my BadWeB posting privileges.

I agree to treat others as I would hope to be treated myself (be excellent to each other); I will only post commentary with a respectful demeanor just as if I am speaking face to face. In all cases I will avoid flame wars and hateful, malicious, derisive, insulting or divisive commentary. I understand that malicious derisive personal commentary in any form is entirely unwelcome on BadWeB.

I agree with and understand well that those sowing disharmony and malcontent are not welcome at BadWeatherBikers.com. I will not masquerade under multiple usernames, nor will I disingenuously seek to conceal my identity by accessing BadWeB through anonymizer type proxy web servers. Should I lose posting privileges, I vow to honor that decision and promise on my honor that I will not seek to regain access through disingenuous means, other username(s), new user account(s). I realize that doing so will constitute a blatant violation of my ISP terms of use and may result in revocation of my internet access.

Absent permission from a board custodian, I will refrain entirely from the promotion and/or marketing of commercial merchandise or other similar/competing web sites.

Absent permission/approval from a board custodian, I will refrain from using the "Post as Anonymous" option, which is reserved only for who have a serious and valid need to utilize the "Post as Anonymous" option.

In summary I promise that while participating on BadWeB I will: be excellent to other BadWeBrs, refrain from posting lewd, profane, vulgar or other non-family oriented content, honor the requests of board custodians, refrain from posting unapproved promotional/advertising/marketing content or hyperlinks thereto, and refrain from unapproved use of the "Post as Anonymous" option.

I understand that comments posted on the discussion forum represent only the views of their authors and in no way may be construed as representing the views of BadWeatherBikers.com, its custodians, or its owner(s) of record. I will never hold BadWeatherBikers.com, its custodians, or its owner(s) of record responsible for any content posted by users of the discussion board.

If I have a problem with content that is posted to the discussion forum, I will notify a BadWeB custodian; I will not confront either on the board or via private message or other means, the author of the post I find problematic. I will allow the BadWeB custodian(s) to address and respond to the issue.

If I have any questions concerning the acceptability of content for posting to BadWeB, I will seek clarification prior to posting it.
