Code of Conduct

Mission:
 
The Gay Thailand Message Center forums are provided as a venue for the discussion and exchange of information about Thailand and other related issues. It is a place to submit queries and share experiences, information, concerns, news and views, and maybe even a little humor for the benefit of members. Responsible, non-abusive, free and open dialog is fostered between members and between members and Thai guys in support of the Gay Thailand site mission. Abusive posts shall not be tolerated.
 
Message Center Membership:
 
Browse access to the forums is a free benefit of Gay Thailand membership. Post access is a privilege granted to like-minded Gay Thailand members supportive of Thailand and gay experiences in Thailand. Gay Thailand membership is a necessary but not sufficient condition for Message Center post privileges. Post access is contingent upon sharing the Message Center Mission and observing the Covenant and the Code of Conduct.
 
Failure to observe the Covenant or the Code of Conduct shall constitute cause for termination of Message Center post privileges. Egregious member conduct in external forums may give cause for Gay Thailand Message Center post-access privileges to be reviewed and revoked at the Moderator's discretion.
 
The determination of violations is the sole purview of the Moderators and Administrators. Message Center post privileges may be terminated without prior notice at the discretion of the Management.
 
Covenant:
 
The Gay Thailand Management takes very seriously the privacy of its members and recognizes the desire and in many cases the need for discretion.
 
Posting to the appropriate forum is essential to a well-run board. If you post to a board that is not on topic, the moderators will move this topic to the correct board. The decision to move topics is the sole discretion of the moderators.
 
There is also no discussion of underage sex. In Thailand and in most places in the world, sex with minors is illegal. Anyone that promotes sex with someone under the legal age of consent will be reported to the authorities.
 
Thailand is a Kingdom in which respect for the Royal Family is expected. There will be no posts allowed that disparage or insult the royals.
 
Personal abuse will not be tolerated. No name-calling or abuse of posters will be allowed by users or by moderators. If you have an issue with a poster, contact a moderator. If you have an issue with a post, post a counter argument.
 
Off topic posts:
 
hijacking a thread to divert conversation away from the original discussion is not allowed. Sometimes a discussion will veer away from the original topic and that is to be expected over time. Whether or not a post is off topic is a decision made by the moderators of the forum and such posts may be removed or edited.
 
No links to pornographic websites are allowed. Posting these links will result in immediate removal of the post and disillusion of the membership of the poster.
 
Posting personal information about members is not allowed. Personal information is any information that identifies a person or his residence or place of employment and includes but is not necessarily limited to:
 
  • first and last name
  • residential or business address
  • phone number
  • Social Security number
  • credit card number
  • e-mail address
  • Photos of subject or subject's family/friends/pets/place of residence or employment/study, automobile*, or auto license plate.
  • IP address
 
Exception:
 
A member may choose to disclose his first name in 'signing' his posts. Under that circumstance, usage of a first name to address or refer to that member shall not be deemed a violation of the Covenant. Without public announcement by the individual, such first name usage shall be considered a violation of the Covenant and Code of Conduct.
 
In all instances, the Moderators shall be the final arbiters of what constitutes personal information.
 
Code of Conduct:
 
Gay Thailand membership is restricted to Adults Only. That Message Center members shall be expected to behave as adults is not an undue burden. The expected conduct standard for the Gay Thailand forums is the same as that observed everyday in society by adults in our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. It is based on straightforward mature behavior, civility and courtesy that you find in a neighborhood Pub or Tavern where neighbors and acquaintances joined by occasional strangers come together to socialize in good temper, to share conversation, and to hoist, in moderation, a glass of favorite beer or wine or a cup of coffee or tea.
 
These forums are NOT presented for abusive arguing and name calling, score settling, thread stalking, or general cyberspace blood sport for the chronically bored.
 
As in any Pub or Tavern, an egregiously abusive or chronically problematic customer (member) shall be banned from further post participation.
 
In all instances, Gay Thailand Moderators shall be the final arbiter of what constitutes egregiously abusive conduct or when a member has crossed the line of 'chronically problematic'.
 
In general, terminated memberships shall not be eligible for reinstatement.
