Postings on Message Boards

It is important for you to remain aware that when you provide personal information (e.g., last name, address, phone number) in a posting on any message board or email directory, that information is available to other persons or users having access and use of that service, and may be used by someone in a manner unintended by you.

Report Abuse. Here's the deal: Please do not report abuse simply because you have a differing opinion of another poster. We all come from different backgrounds, have different views of the world therefore please respect one and other. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Sharing of your personal information (work place, home address, telephone numbers. personal pictures, family information, background heritage etc, etc) among board members is strictly up to each individual member.

GNI and Guyanafriends.com do not endorse such practices and advise their members to be prudent of what information they share with other board members. Guyana.org/Guyanafriends.com cannot be held responsible if a member discloses such information to anyone else.

In addition, a member should avoid giving out his/her forum username or password to anyone, and he/she should not disclose server logins and/or passwords to anyone other than the Administrators of this forum (for the sole purpose of either changing this information or requesting any kind of assistance with the management of his/her account).

Likewise members should refrain from sharing their login info with suspended members. If caught some of your permissions can be removed or your membership can be cancelled.

We discourage you from offering any personal identifying information within a posting to any message board and to be cautious in sharing your personal information via emails also.

With respect to our Discussion Forums,from time to time we monitor our list of members posting on our board. Members not actively participating in discussions on the board can have their membership cancelled or suspended. Such action is at the sole discretion of the Administrator.

Posting Rules: Unacceptable Conduct:

1) Do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, racist, hateful, threatening, or that otherwise violate any laws. Please use good judgement when choosing user names, avatars, or images to post, inappropriate content will be removed without notice.

2) Personal attacks, rudeness, insults to others, or arguments will not be tolerated. If you wish to challenge a member's point of view and opinions, then do so respectfully and thoughtfully.

3) Please make sure that your posts are positive, constructive, and on the topic. We may delete individual posts that could ruin a good topic thread. As much as we allow members to freely express their opinions. There is a limit as to what we will tolerate. If a member starts spreading lies, rumors or post mischievous/slanderous information that is disruptive to our community we will take the necessary actions as we see fit.

4) We reserve the right to remove any topics deemed inappropriate or disruptive to our community.

5) Do not make offensive posts, links or images. Do not post NSFW content. NSFW ("Not Safe For Work") is defined as anything that most people would not want seen by their bosses, parents or teachers. Do not use profanity, racial, ethnic, religious, or other slurs and stereotypes, or post sexually-oriented material, masturbatory and excretory references, or any other offensive material.

7) Do not post any messages that harass, insult (name calling), belittle, threaten or mock other members. Debates are fine, but critique the opinion, not the person. Personal attacks are not permitted. Do not use sweeping generalizations and plural pronouns to cloak personal attacks. For example if a poster(s) states that he thinks 'x' is a good idea, replying that "Anyone who supports 'x' is an idiot" is a personal attack.

Our members should be wary of re-posting contents from other sites that can be deemed as propaganda or mischievous. It is advisable to always post the source of articles.

Are these NEW Rules or these the Original GNI Rules?? Well if one has to follow those rules , I can see lots of Termination. What I found recently with the New Moderator, postings are being Edit, deleted and changed to suit his personal preference this was NEVER done  before.

 I may not serve notice, but if I find my postings are changed or edited without my knowledge, then I take it for granted my membership is no longer needed.

These rules have been there for 17 plus years with slight modification from time to time.

Last updated back in January 2018.

I have been guilty for not fully enforcing them, allowing members to govern themselves in a professional manner.

But those days will soon be changed with the changing of the guards. 

Yuh rass is a rale slacker. πŸ˜€

Yuh gat we behaving like we in a rumshop. 🍺

Good thing Django tekkin over dis cake shop. Things gun get rale clean around heah.

Thanks for spotlighting these rules, moderator Django. Moderator Ray never spotlighted these rules. To the best of my knowledge, other moderators didn't spotlight these rules. My statements here should not be construed as personal attacks. They are merely my observations. 

To proceed to more observations, Gilbakka has not observed many of these rules. Others have not done so either. It will be hard for us to become righteous and observe these rules to the letter though we like them in spirit.

Moderator Django, hundreds of years before Christ a prophet named Moses had made up a short list of rules called the Ten Commandments. Christians and Jews are expected to obey those commandments but billions of them through the ages have not obeyed the Ten Commandments up to now. I hope you will give us at least a lifetime to fall in line with  GNI FoRUM rules. If GNI members through the last 24 years couldn't comply with the rules, how de rass yuh expeck abee-dese fo obey in 24 hours, 24 days, 24 weeks or 24 months?

OK....got it.

Just be aware, Skeldon-Man may have a problem with this rule:

Do not use profanity, racial, ethnic, religious, or other slurs and stereotypes, or post sexually-oriented material, masturbatory and excretory references, or any other offensive material.

Why you .Rass don't speak for yourself. Drink your milk and go sleep.

If coolies and negroes are racial words, I might be out of here sooner than I think and you would be dancing on top of your banaff roof.
If the word is legal and described in the English dictionary, I may have some serious problems. When that day comes, I will make my exit.

Good to have the rules, it’s a guidance. Hey Amral, you backside couldn’t have enforced the rules because you are guilty of breaking them - and that’s the fun part here. we are freaking adults here man,
If the new guard wanna enforce  those rules, good luck with his site. Just like how PNC people ruins everything they put their hand on, unfortunately, this will be next .

The tek over guard said we have β€œ no cost privileges to post on this forum β€œ
β€œ I man loosing me patience”
