1. Our privacy policies apply to the use of these forums and this website. Please read them. SCEA's policy can be found at this link . Please also see SCEE's policy at this link .
  2. We've promised to respect your privacy, and we need to ask you to respect the privacy of others. Posting of phone numbers, addresses, or other personal information that may violate someone's privacy is prohibited. (This includes posting personally identifying information about yourself!)
  3. Offensive material is also prohibited. Offensive is a pretty broad term, but we think you know what we mean. (You're going to have to trust our judgement, if you don't.) This includes any messages or material that are ethnically, racially, religiously, or sexually offensive, insulting, or demeaning. It also includes messages that are harassing or threatening to others. In other words, if you wouldn't like it said about you, don't say it about others. We don't want to be censors, but non-constructive negative comments may be inappropriate.
  4. Don't discuss any illegal activities. This includes piracy and other forms of intellectual property infringement! The guys who work here and spend most of their waking hours trying to make great games for the PlayStation game console get really bummed out when they read that kind of stuff.
  5. These boards are here so we can be social and talk about two of our favorite things: PlayStation and Linux! It is not intended to help anyone start up a new business. Any advertisements, solicitations, or promotional materials of a commercial nature are prohibited.
  6. We reserve the right to monitor the boards and delete any postings that don't adhere to these rules, our standard site terms of use, and our privacy and security policies. This includes postings that disrupt or interfere with our technical operations.
  7. Finally, because we can't think of everything offensive or inappropriate that may be said, we reserve the right to immediately delete any posting or ban any user at our sole discretion. (Sorry, but it might be necessary.)
