Old Terms Of Service
« on: January 26, 2010, 12:08:06 pm »
Any new member spamming (posting about viagra, get-rich-quick schemes etc.) will be deleted without warning.
Any new member linking to sites that advocate similar subjects, in their profile, will be deleted without warning.

The forum you are about to enter is a public forum belonging to many members from all walks of the dharma.  From Buddhist-curious to ordained members, FreeSangha is where Free Thinking Buddhists around the Globe participate.  

Please be mindful that while your own personal views are your own to express as you see fit, consider that what you express in this forum should be done as if you were in a room with the rest of the members.  The ideas and words you use are no different than if the very same members were besides you in a room with a face to face conversation.  Some beliefs you might personally hold or that your tradition may take for granted may not be part of other Buddhist traditions.  Others may or may not ascribe to your beliefs.  Please practice respect towards everyone the way you would in your own sangha.  

Your contributions will be evaluated by moderators according to right speech and fair-mindedness, and will not be regarded for content based on personal belief.  FreeSangha does not police the dharma for any practitioners, merely offers a public and shared space where different forms of dharma can meet peacefully and share their practice with others.   We're not here to police member practice or experience, only immaturity in posting.

No tradition is discriminated against or is silenced at FreeSangha.  Moderation will however remove posts that reflect immaturity or that fuel discord and animosity that is irrelevant to productive discussion.  Posts found to not adhere to the Terms of Service will be considered for removal and authors will be informed by moderation.  FreeSangha is not party to any one Buddhist School's interests.  FreeSangha remains apolitical to differences between traditions. This site intends to foster an impartial atmosphere of harmony and understanding among different traditions.  FreeSangha takes no sides in any political or religious differences between schools of thought but holds all members and staff to the same criteria for moderation and disciplinary action.

Right Speech is prioritized and adhered to at FreeSangha.  Unsubstantiated accusations with respect to people or organizations which allege wrongdoing without factual evidence will be treated as potentially defamatory and will be removed without warning to the poster for the protection of the site.  Discussion of controversial topics have a space at FreeSangha in the Danger Zone though any posts which violate Right Speech and contain accusatory or slanderous material are not considered constructive or productive learning material by FreeSangha and will be removed by moderators for everyone's continued freedom to learn and study harmoniously.

May everyone be happy. May everyone be free from suffering.
May everyone have equanimity free from hatred and attachment.

While the administrators and moderators of this site will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to this site express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. Creating multiple accounts for a single user is not allowed.  Consequently the use of an anonymous IP address will not be permitted as it prevents us from identifying multiple accounts. You agree that the webmaster, administrators and moderators of this site have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrators and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.

This site system uses cookies to store information on your local computer.  These cookies do not contain any of the information you have entered above, they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The email address is used only for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

By clicking Register for membership you agree to be bound by these conditions.
