The Gray Tie Guidelines

OK, so I needed a little help writing my guidelines for the blog. My goal here was to get ya'll to send in your submissions for The Gray Tie commenting and trackback guidelines and I was hoping for some silliness.

If you have a wise-ass guideline for me email them to me and I'll put them up here with a link back to your site. Email at bottom of this post.

Let the smart-assery begin.

But first, let's get the serious stuff out of the way first. The following guidelines submitted by MacStansbury.org

Comments:

• Do not Spam. Spamming includes: Posting an ad for another (commercial) site or a product; posting a topic more than once or in several different areas and posting twice or more in a row.

• Do not use language and images that are racist or sexist, or language and images that belittle a person’s religion, sexual preference or ethnicity.

• Do not use language and images that include profanity, nudity, sexual activity and sexuality in general, blood or gore, or that violate other rules. Any of these comments will get deleted as soon as can get got to.

• The Gray Tie reserves the right to alter or delete any comment on the blog at any time, without notification.

• Do not violate copyright laws. Do not promote or solicit illegal activities.

• Do not Flame. A flame is a personal attack against another member. Flaming can be defined by making pointless or hurtful messages or just posting to see your own Avatar. I don't care how gay you are, no flaming.

• Do not impersonate other members. Impersonators will be banned and all their posts deleted.

• Don't Troll or engage in troll-like activities. One who purposely and deliberately starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on this site without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad homonym attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevance to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.

• The Gray Tie reserves the right to ban any member without warning, reason or justification.

• The Gray Tie reserves the right to reveal any user’s identity to the proper authorities in the event of a complaint or legal proceeding resulting from any comment you make in this blog. We also reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever. Furthermore, we reserve the right to not disclose our reasons for deleting said comment(s).

• Please be advised that all posts become the property of The Gray Tie and Blogger, and we can (and will-oh yes, we will) use them as we see fit, with no obligation to the original author of the post. We thank you in advance for your cooperation, and for giving me free material.

• Repeated or severe violations of the rules or engaging in actions we deem as abuse of the boards will result in dire consequences (you’ll be suspended, banned, hung by your toenails, or turned over to the proper authorities in the case of illegal activity.) Nobody wants that. So don’t screw up!

Email:

• All that applies to comments also applies to email as well.

• In addition, unless expressly requested by the sender, all correspondence to The Gray Tie becomes property of the The Gray Tie, to use as The Gray Tie wishes. However, even if the author explicitly requests it to not be used, The Gray Tie will make fun of you by being vague, and not using your real name or email address. But we all know, you're gonna soooo be embarrassed when she does, ain't cha?

• The Gray Tie reserves the right to reveal any user’s identity to the proper authorities in the event of a complaint or legal proceeding resulting from any correspondence. We also reserve the right to delete any message for any reason whatsoever. Furthermore, we reserve the right to not disclose our reasons for deleting said email(s).

A while back I called for all of your smart-assery guidelines as well. Here is one of the first:

1. Let's see- Hows about no comments by people whose IQ's are equivalent to their age?

All linked guidelines will take you to the person who submitted that particular guideline.

Want in on the fun?

You can email me your smart ass remarks here:
