      Our aim is to provide The Love and Iron Project members and visitors with an environment where they can feel comfortable expressing their views without fear of condescension or heavy-handed moderation. We understand that folks are passionate about family law reform, parental alienation, and the abuse of children and families, and as a result, discussions can become heated. Never the less, we encourage all members to be tolerant and respectful toward each other. In short, please don’t post anything here that you wouldn’t say to someone in person.

      Important: Many members of the Love and Iron Project as well as its visitors know what it feels like to be treated disrespectfully and/or subjected to abuse. Abusive behavior toward others, content that promotes violence or illegal activity, or offensive material (subject to staff discretion), or spam will not be tolerated and may result in an immediate and permanent ban from the forums and the social network.

      Here are the hard rules specifics:

      1) No profanity or abbreviations for profanity.

      2) No personal attacks, name-calling, hate-speech. This includes posts that were written with the intent to bash or be personally derogatory to a group member. No ad-hominem attack, libel, slander.

      3) No “Trolling”. Trolling is when a person tries to instigate conflict, hostility, or arguments in an on-line social community.

      4) Please no forum posts where the primary content is the discussion of religion. Members are however free to create and join religious-themed groups within our social network for those types of discussions.

      5) Please no forum posts where the primary content is conservative / liberal politics. Our forum is a bipartisan one, there are plenty of other political groups to post political comments and have political ( conservative / liberal) discussions. Members are free to create and form groups withing the social network for this purpose.

      6) Requests for monetary donations or business solicitations (for a group, cause, organization and/or individual) are not permitted on the forums. You are however more than welcome to make those appeals and promotions within our social networking groups (subject to the general rules described here, including discretion and/or approval from individual group moderators.)

      7) Posting from multiple accounts (“sock puppets”) is not allowed.

      8) No doxing. Do not share private information about other forum members without their permission.

      9) Forum, social network, and group content: All permissions and memberships are subject to Love and Iron Project staff and/or individual group moderator(s) discretion.

      10) Activities or content that promotes, encourages, or engages in illegal activity is not permitted.

      11) No content that promotes or encourages violence toward self or others.

      12) No pornography, offensively graphic, or similarly offensive content.
