has made available forums for the benefit and enjoyment of
all fans and customers. BlitWise would like them to be an
online society where anyone would feel welcome and everyone
can have fun. For the existence of any such society, however,
there must be rules of order and behavior.
and its members wish for the forums here to be available to
all people, of various ages, backgrounds, and sensitivities.
Therefore, language or behavior which would be inappropriate
to use in an intended Family-Friendly environment is therefore
not allowed. Foul, offensive, or abusive language is forbidden.
This includes the use of swearing, racial, religious, or sex-based
slurs, as well as any language designed solely to demean or
belittle another poster. Sexual comments and sexual innuendo
are also violations of the TOS. Attempting to use words which
are forbidden by altering the spelling, or replacing letters
with asterisks (*), is also considered a violation. Posts
and/or threads found to be in violation may be edited or removed
by the Forum Moderator, and the offending poster given a private
warning. If a poster shows a pattern of such uncorrected behavior
he may have his membership suspended for a given period of
time, or, in certain cases, may be banned from the forums
Personal Respect and Courtesy
the intent of BlitWise to provide a place where fans may socialize
and discuss in a respectful and mutually enjoyable manner.
To this end, behavior which runs counter to this goal is considered
a violation of the TOS. This includes, but is not limited
to, (A) ad hominem attacks, that is, an attack on the person
or character of another poster, rather than on his or her
ideas or opinions which may be contrary to others; (B) violent
or threatening behavior against another poster, his or her
property, or (C) anything else which is deemed intimidation
against his or her well-being, which includes threats of physical
violence as well as threats of electronic violence, such as
hacking or spamming; hostile or disruptive posting, including
any threats or behaviors forbidden above, spamming of threads
or forums, or (D) any other behavior which is disruptive to
the environment or running of the BlitWise forums.
Decorum and Decency
above, the atmosphere of these forums is one of family friendliness.
Therefore, the advocacy of the use of illegal substances,
or of controlled legal substances such as tobacco or alcohol
in an illegal manner or by those not of a legal age, is a
violation of the spirit of the BlitWise's entertainment, and
thus of this forum and its TOS.
D. Legal and Privacy Concerns
and privacy of all our fans and posters is a paramount concern
to Blitwise Productions. Consequently, it is improper for
posters under the age of 13 to release any personal information
on the forums. This includes real name, specific location,
or age. It is also inappropriate to express excessive or persistent
curiosity about the age, location, or name of another poster
on the forums, and may result in warning, suspension, or banning.
In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection
Act of 1998, children under the age of 13 may not register
to post on the forum without verifiable parental consent by
a parent or guardian.
