Harassment takes many forms, and is not necessarily limited to the type of language used, but the intent. Repeatedly targeting a specific Anonymous User or Member with harassment can lead to more severe action. The idea behind this is to prevent any one Anonymous User or Member from consistently being uncomfortable in the forums.

The bottom line is that we want the Aliendisc Forums to be a fun and safe environment for all Anonymous Users and Members. While posting on these forums, you will encounter thousands of other Anonymous Users and Members who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We’ve done everything we can to make this a great environment – now it’s up to you!
