The Board of Directors has discussed the matter of "off-topic" posts and have decided that we needed to clarify the purpose of our "miscellaneous" forum here on our message board.

Our message board was created for the discussion of aquarium hobby-related topics.

We hope that folks will exercise discretion about what they post here. Obvious "no no's" are disparaging remarks towards any one person or group, potentially slanderous complaints about a business (we don't want to get ourselves sued), political rants, etc. do not belong here. If you have a personal beef with someone on the board, you need to take that discussion offline (or at least don't post it here).

We also are not here for folks to post "items for sale" that are not hobbyist-related. Those posts are better suited to places like craigslist.
Spamming the board with commercial ads is also strictly prohibited, and anyone caught doing so will be banned and reported to their ISP.

If you are selling items that are actually related to the hobby, that is fine to post in the miscellaneous forum. Filters, tanks, fish, plants, "for sale" ads are all appropriate to post there.

While the BAS is not responsible for any items for sale, and cannot endorse any product or person posting items for sale here on the board, whatever folks want to trade or sell between themselves is fine with us as long as it is aquarium hobby-related.

We hope that everyone will exercise their best judgement and think twice about posting something that might be questionable.

We're not trying to be unpleasant, or rule with an iron fist, we just want to keep this board on-topic and managable.
