insults, crude language, advertising and off-topic replies. Please be polite
and helpful with your replies. Feel free to seek support without fear of undue
criticism. By choosing to join, you declare
to have read and have agreed to abide by these rules.
- Who Is Welcome Here?
Anyone interested in low-carb issues. Feel free to ask any questions and be polite in your answers. If you have a lot of weight to lose, very little weight to lose, or just want to follow low-carbing for good health, you are welcome
If you do not believe in low-carbing and have strong arguments against it, you
are welcome as well, but please restrict your posts to the "War Zone". If you have
scientific or medical references you wish to share with us, please post the
material in the "Low-Carb Studies" section of our forums.
- Please consult your doctor and read a
Our support forum is for persons who want to help themselves; and to share
ideas with low-carbers from around the web. Many excellent low carbohydrate
plans exist, all are welcome. It is beyond the scope of our support community
to prescribe a diet plan for you, so we encourage you to consult your doctor
and read one or more of the published program books. Once you've decided which plan is right for you,
we are here to help you along the way. Please note, we only discuss published
plans, not proprietary, clinic-only type of plans as these require personal
supervision, and we cannot give medical
advice or service.
- No Flaming or insults
We strive to provide a safe environment for members to express their
ideas without personal attacks or "flames". Please be polite in your
posts. Any reply that we feel violates this rule will be edited or deleted.
Any member who becomes belligerent or requires too much attention from
moderators will lose their posting privileges. If you object to a post,
and consider it a flame or insult, please use the "Report bad post" link instead of insulting the poster back. If you flame others
through personal attacks, even in
response to a perceived personal attack, you will lose your posting privileges.
- No illegal/defamatory/sexually explicit stuff
By clicking the Agree button, you warrant
that you will abide by these rules and not post any messages that are
knowingly false and/or defamatory, obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated,
hateful, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy or otherwise violative of
any laws. If you do so, you will lose your posting privileges.
- Advertising of Web Sites, Products, and Solicitation
Advertising of web-sites and products is not accepted on this site - so don't
do it. It will be deleted and you will be reported to your ISP with full IP
logs. If you would like to purchase advertising space,
please contact Webmaster
- No e-mail addresses in posts
Please do not include your e-mail address in your posts. There are automatic
programs called "bots" that will tear through all of our posts if there are
e-mail addresses. They gather them for the spammers, but like the spammers
they have no consideration and can overload our server, making it unavailable
to legitimate users.
- One Registration Only
As the board gets larger, it becomes more important that each member has only
one registration name. Any member who signs up under a new name will lose
their posting privileges and access to the site. If you feel you have to
re-register with a new name due to a technical problem, be sure to get it
okayed by us first.
- Posting is a Privilege
Please note, posting here is a privilege that we hope you will enjoy and
respect. The moderators can and will remove the posting privileges of any
person who does not wish to follow the rules, and in our opinion is in
violation of these rules.
- Do NOT fight with the staff
This is a big, busy site. It is a big job for us to keep it running smoothly. If we ask
you to stop doing something or change something, just do it. We do not have
the time to enter into a discussion with you. If your post or thread "disappears",
live with it as we do not have time to send you a detailed explanation. Re-read
the rules to refresh your memory as to why it happened. Once again, there will
be no discussion on these matters. If you
become a nuisance, you will lose your posting privileges.
We welcome debate regarding low-carb issues, but these forum rules are not open for discussion, argument or debate.
- Do not complain about the rules.
If you object to these rules being applied in a certain case, please report
this to us using the "Report bad post" link . Any public
discussion of such matters will be removed and you will lose your posting
privileges. Simply put: This is our turf. We've opened it up to you and would
like you to stay and feel welcome here. We put a lot of time and effort into
providing you with a clean and safe environment which means we clean up a lot
of rubbish. We who volunteer to pick up the rubbish get to decide what is
rubbish based upon the Rules outlined here. If we decide that your post is
rubbish, it's gone. Please don't argue and please don't keep posting along the
same line otherwise you're gone too.
Although the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum,
it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author,
and neither the owners of this forum or Jelsoft Enterprises Limited (developers of vBulletin)
will be held responsible for the content of any message.
