Forum Rules (They are simple!)

FORUM RULES:

You must register to post on our forums.

Please be respectful of others at all times. The forums are meant to provide a platform for the open exchange of ideas. There will occasionally be conflicts of opinion that naturally arise between people in such a venue. Please be polite and remain professional when disagreeing with others. It is possible to disagree without being derisive.

Please respect the privacy of others and do not give out personal information such as names, phone numbers, email, etc. Individuals are advised to only make this information available discreetly via their user profile, or directly to other users via the forum's "Private Message" (PM) feature, if at all. Similarly, any private correspondence between the administrators/moderators and forum users should remain private.

Advertising/spamming on the forums is strictly prohibited. Any posts deemed to be advertisements or spam will either be moved or deleted (and the poster warned and/or banned) at the discretion of the administrators/moderators. Posts deemed to be abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or otherwise offensive will be treated in a similar manner.

Factual or alleged factual information and opinions or commentary posted on the forums does not originate from Implode-Explode Heavy Industries, Inc., and is the sole responsibility of the forum member posting said information or opinion(s).

If you have questions, concerns, or feedback regarding administrative or moderating actions, please email us at forumadmin@implode-explode.com.

A word from our Founder

And now, a word from our Founder...

Thanks for participating in ML-Implode/IEHI forums. We hope you will continue to join us here in polite discussion of important industry and economic issues of our time, in the manner of mature, grown adults, acting as if they were debating these topics in a room full of well-armed and polite peers and hoping to emerge with the same number of holes as when they went in.


These forums are meant for professional discourse, and as such participants deserve to be treated and are expected to behave with a modicum of respect and civility. Ad hominem attacks (direct, personal insults) and generally unprofessional or vulgar language have no place and will not be permitted here. Participants are encouraged to actively report posts deemed offensive or off-topic for either of these reasons. Straying off-topic in a constructive discussion should not be construed as “offensive” content but will likely result in the thread being split off to a new topic. This especially applies to posts of an inflammatory or politically charged nature which is specifically addressed here. Forum members are encouraged to use the built-in "Private Message", "Email", "AIM" or other outside communication links made available to registered users for such exchanges.

Certain practices will not be permitted on our forums. These are (but are not limited to):

    Use of commercial URL’s (web addresses) within a post or as part of a User’s signature for promotional purposes is generally prohibited. Users may enter a URL in their profile which will then appear as a linked button below each of their posts with the option enabled.

    Likewise, email addresses that appear as links within a post or as part of a User’s signature are also prohibited. Users may enter an email address in their profile which will then appear as a linked button below each of their posts with the option enabled. If it is necessary to list an email address not linked via the User’s profile, please spell out the separating characters so spammers cannot “see” it (ie, “ml-feedback at ml-implode dot com” vs ml-feedback@ml-implode.com).

    Spamming – posting the same material repeatedly on different threads throughout the forums or posting solely to promote a self/commercial interest or agenda – is strictly prohibited.

    Trolling – posting irrelevant or inflammatory content without actually participating in meaningful discussion on a given topic or to promote a self/commercial interest or agenda – is also strictly prohibited.


Users who violate the above posting policies may have their entries edited, deleted, or their accounts suspended/banned from further posting on the forums with or without notice.
