As StrangelyNormal is legally considered to be a publication and as such part of the media, all the laws of Libel, Contempt of Court etc apply, especially Section 2 of the Contempt of Court Act 1981. (A substantial risk of serious prejudice can only be created by a media report when proceedings are active. Proceedings become active when there is an arrest, oral charge, issue of a warrant, or a summons.) What this means is please do not make any comments on ongoing legal proceedings, unless you are reporting exactly what has been said in court. There are no exceptions to this rule
Strangely Normal agrees with the adage that Your Kink Is OK (YKIOK) so long as it fits in with the AUP of the site.
Do not start threads replicating a currently discussed topic. You may start a new thread if it is different in some way.
Do not start a thread with nothing more than a link. A link to something off site should be used as a useful addition to your post and not the entirety of it. A description of where it goes and what people can expect to see or read when they click on the link would be useful, along with a reason why you want people to see or read it.
You may delete any post that is not the initial post in a thread. You may also delete the initial post in a thread, thus ending the thread, if there has been no reply to it.
Do not alter the meaning of your initial post in a thread once someone has replied to it.
Do not misquote. When quoting you may not alter the meaning of what has been said, though abbreviating the quotation to the part of the text to which you are making your reply is encouraged.
Do not make a post advertising your commercial service or item unless someone in the same thread has already asked about it.
Anyone may request of the Moderation Team that a thread be closed or removed. Please give the reason why you would like this done.
Do not post only to antagonise people. If all you do is start controversial threads to upset or get a rise out of people, then we would prefer you go elsewhere to do it.
Do not bring disputes onto this site from elsewhere. If the argument started elsewhere, keep it there.
You may not post personal ads on the boards.
BDSM events may promote themselves through event posts and listings.
For any event which has a fee to attend, all conditions of entry must be listed. Eg: price, dress code, membership requirements etc. Pay for play events may not be promoted under any circumstances.
For free events no entry requirements need to be listed.
You may not promote an event which discriminates against any group having any of the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
You may only create one thread or listing for your event.
You are responding to a post made by someone, not connected in any way to your business or service, in the last seven days and that post is relevant to your service or business.
If you are occasionally selling some of your second hand BDSM or fetish related possessions on somewhere like eBay you may list them in a weblog. By occasional we mean less than once a month.
