Any member(s) who assist or attempt to assist any other "Banned Members" by setting up another account(s) for them will also have their accounts banned, also any "Banned Members" who manage to obtain a duplicate account will have their access removed immediately. 4)Accounts Once you Join the forum you are a member unless banned. All posts will remain unless breaching forum rules, If you wish to leave/stop participation in this forum Just stop posting, Under no circumstances will accounts be deleted on request as this causes problems in both management of the forums and also a member who demands their posts/accounts are deleted will "break" multiple threads that they have participated in and they shall no longer make any sense to reasonable people.

The Real "Small Print" Content Material is posted to this forum by individuals who are entirely independent of T5D5.org . We have no independent means of verifying that material is accurate or complete and we can therefore take no responsibility for its content. If you post material you are entirely responsible for its content, including its accuracy. You agree that you will ensure that the material you post is legal in your jurisdiction, the UK and the USA, and that it is not defamatory, abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented, invasive of a person's privacy or in any other regard violates 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, as is common practice with internet forums. You agree that the webmaster, administrator and moderators so designated of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. While the administrators and moderators of this forum 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 these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators, webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence they will not be held liable. T5D5.org will remove material if we are advised that it is illegal or defamatory; please notify webmaster@t5d5.org by e-mail if you find any such content in these forums. Any person who feels that a posted message is objectionable or otherwisebreachesthe terms of this agreement is encouraged to contact us immediately by e-mail to admin@t5d5.org You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by T5D5.org or you have the explicit agreement of the copyright owner. Persons or companies identified as traders, and who wish to be listed as traders agree that in return for having their own subforum and attendant advertising attached to their subforum and/or their signatures must ensure that they are capable of receiving PM messages on the board, and they are expected to be active members of the board (as such logging in at least weekly **unless there have been special arrangements made**. Such special arrangements may include such as permanently offering discounts or services to the board members (in the case of main dealers) or contributing in another way. Normal members who wish to assist other members by way of having their own subforum where those members do not directly profit from that activity (ie are employees of a firm) can apply to the administrator for permission for a section to be added. If there are clearly identified issues with a trader in terms of customer complaints or similar issues and that trader has a subforum then that subforum will be reviewed and possibly removed. Also if the trader is seen to be non active and the subforum adds little benefit or advantage for the members (and is primarily being taken advantage of as free advertising by a trader) then that subforum will be reviewed and possibly removed as will any other advertisements such as signatures. The decision of the moderators and administrators is final. Traders must accept that goods and/ or services together with the customer service experience provided to members may be subject to fair comment by the membership, be that comment positive or negative. Whilst it is the posting member's responsibility to ensure that comment is their honestly held belief it is the memberships right to freely express their views and traders are expected to use their 'right-of-reply' to address such issues as they see fit. Any trader or person who attempts to stifle free speach by threatening or taking legal action against this forum or any member thereof for publishing factual material or honestly held opinions may put themselves at risk of action by the moderation team and/ or wider membership both in terms of appropriate legal remedies, 'direct action' protest (by strictly legal means) and comment upon their actions on this forum.
