User Conduct and Obligations
Harassment/Personal Attacks:
Please remember to be polite. A healthy debate is fine, but personal attacks are unacceptable. Do not antagonize or bait others. We want people to feel welcome here regardless of their differing views. Just because someone disagrees with you does not necessarily mean they have attacked you. If you are angry about a message, please take some time to reflect before you respond. Then you're less likely to feed the fire with a hasty, emotional response. We are all here to learn and have fun.

Please be aware that Persian-Cats.com is not responsible or liable for disputes between breeders or any other parties.

Language and Content:
Please refrain from transmitting or posting any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where Persian-Cats.com is hosted or International Law.

Forum/Chat Room Disruption:
Don't cause trouble. Don't needlessly bait or pick on people. While disruption does not always rise to the level of harassment or personal attacks, it is still no fun. If you find it necessary to pick on people, do it elsewhere. Users who engage in repeated disruption are candidates for account deletion, just as if they engaged in harassment or personal attacks.

Appropriate Topics:
Use good judgment while engaging in dialogue with others. There is nothing wrong with a conversation that steers away from cats, but it's best to avoid certain subjects. For example, this is not the best place to discuss sex, politics, religion, etc. (You will find that there are plenty of other chat rooms and bulletin boards elsewhere on the Web for such exchanges.) We want people of all ages to feel welcome here. Also, please remember that Persian-Cats.com is not a dating service, so do not use the chat room to try and "pick up" someone.

Getting Personal:
If you have personal grievances with another user, you are expected to handle matters privately. Do not post phone numbers or addresses in the forums! Please do not post copies of emails or private messages. To our younger members: Never tell anyone where you live. If asked, just explain that you're not comfortable giving out that info.
