Forum Rules

Keep your contributions civil, tasteful and relevant. Please:

  • No defamatory comments. A defamatory comment is one that is capable of damaging the reputation of a person or organisation. If successfully sued you could be held liable for considerable damages and costs.
  • Avoid contempt of court which means not posting anything that risks prejudicing on-going or forthcoming court proceedings.
  • Do not incite people to commit any crime, including incitement of racial hatred.
  • Avoid breaking a court injunction (for example, naming an individual or speculating as to their current whereabouts after a court has issued an injunction against doing so).
  • Do not post content which you’ve copied from someone else and don’t own the copyright.
  • Do not post messages that are unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, homophobic or racially offensive.
  • No swearing. People of all ages read and contribute to the Marden forum. Please don’t use profanities or other words which might offend them.
  • No spamming or flooding. Don’t repost the same message, or very similar messages, more than once.
  • No personal information. It is not acceptable to publicise your or anyone else’s contact details including address, place of employment, name of educational establishment, telephone or mobile number, email address, etc. This is for your own safety and that of everyone who uses this service.
  • No advertising, promotion of products or services, or posting of web links (URLs). 
  • No capital letters. This is internet shorthand for raising your voice. You can make your point perfectly well in lower case so please take the caps lock off.
  • No impersonating. Impersonating someone (including other members) is unacceptable.
  • No inappropriate usernames (vulgar, offensive, etc).
  • No multiple memberships. Please do not create more than one membership. It is unfair to the other users who only have one membership and abide by the posting and recommendation limit.
