Comment rules

Acceptable Behaviour in the comments section:

  • You may not use this section to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person’s privacy, or otherwise violative of any law.
  • You may not post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or with permission of the copyright owner.
  • You may not promote any service (including non-commercial) whether by means of providing a link, or by means of contacting the users of this website. Furthermore, advertisements, spam, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are prohibited on this website. Also note that we reserve the right to ban external websites or web pages.
  • You may not post links to external links other than YouTube.
  • Personal attacks against other users are strictly prohibited.
  • The Motor Sport website is aimed at offering its members a place to discuss motor racing issues. Posts that are solely aimed at instigating fights, insulting or disrupting service will be removed and will lead to a ban.

Moderation of comments:

  • The Motor Sport website is moderated by forum hosts and administrators. Attacking a host or an administrator because of their work is not tolerated under any circumstances.
  • We welcome you contacting us with feedback. However, the way the website is run or the actions of the moderation team are not topics to be debated in public. Any such comments will be removed.
  • The hosts and administrators have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realise that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
  • Although the administrators and moderators of the Motor Sport website will attempt to keep all objectionable messages out of the comments, it is impossible for us to review all messages. In a case where you come across an objectionable comment, please bring it to our attention and do not respond to it. By responding to an objectionable post, you are simply adding more work for the host/administrator.
  • When comments are removed because they violate these terms, all posts that relate or reply to that removed comment will also be removed.
  • In a case of repeat offence, the administrators may ban temporarily or indefinitely a user from participating.
  • In a case where a user has more than one username, we reserve the right to ban one or all of his or her accounts. Furthermore, you should not use more than one username to actively participate on the forum.
  • You may not re-register after being banned from commenting. Any attempt to do so will be detected and lead to the banning of all related accounts without warning.
  • Derogatory, obscene or otherwise unsuitable usernames will be banned or erased at the discretion of the administrators.
  • You must have a valid and working email in your profile at all times. If your email is not working and a moderator attempts to contact you, you will be banned.
