Hello and Welcome!

OK, now for the "stern warning".

We are real people, with real goals for and in Wyoming. We don't have time or patience for any B.S., tomfoolery, or ballyhoo. 

This is a clean and tidy forum, free of trolls and sock puppets. It's not even a bully pulpit of my own (though I may occasionally bloviate in "Boston's Bailiwick").

Most boards have their own mods. What they say, goes. Don't come whining to me if you get canked, spanked, locked, or banned.

Boards without mods are overseen by me and the forum administrators. Participants there must govern themselves, and promptly report any abuse.

September 2007 NOTE: Because of abuse, this forum no longer allows multiple usernames per individual. 
Close down any additional account(s) during your next session, else risk having them all deleted. 

We want to earn a good reputation here, and thus for ourselves in Wyoming. Please help us do just that.

Final thing:  I post in Green so that I can skip to/past my own stuff.   Please choose another color,
and preferably one not customarily used by a veteran username.  Squatter's right and all . . .

Thanks, and welcome!

Boston T. Party

Here is the registration agreement all users signed on to, in order to use this forum:
You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any International or United States Federal law. You also agree not to post any copyrighted material unless you own the copyright or you have written consent from the owner of the copyrighted material. Spam, flooding, advertisements, chain letters, pyramid schemes, and solicitations are also forbidden on this forum.

Note that it is impossible for the staff or the owners of this forum to confirm the validity of posts. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the posted messages, and as such, are not responsible for the content contained within. We do not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information presented. The posted messages express the views of the author, and not necessarily the views of this forum, its staff, its subsidiaries, or this forum's owner. Anyone who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to notify an administrator or moderator of this forum immediately. The staff and the owner of this forum reserve the right to remove objectionable content, within a reasonable time frame, if they determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, please realize that they may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.

You remain solely responsible for the content of your posted messages. Furthermore, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless the owners of this forum, any related websites to this forum, its staff, and its subsidiaries.

You have the ability, as you register, to choose your username. We advise that you keep the name appropriate. With this user account you are about to register, you agree to never give your password out to another person except an administrator, for your protection and for validity reasons. You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason.  We also HIGHLY recommend you use a complex and unique password for your account, to prevent account theft.

After you register and login to this forum, you will be able to fill out a detailed profile. It is your responsibility to present clean and accurate information. Any information the forum owner or staff determines to be inaccurate or vulgar in nature will be removed, with or without prior notice. Appropriate sanctions may be applicable.

Please note that with each post, your IP address is recorded, in the event that you need to be banned from this forum or your ISP contacted. This will only happen in the event of a major violation of this agreement.

Also note that the software places a cookie, a text file containing bits of information (such as your username and password), in your browser's cache. This is ONLY used to keep you logged in/out. The software does not collect or send any other form of information to your computer.
Laws turn men into slaves.

how to get suspended or banned -- Admin Policy

Howdy all,

I've a solid crew of admin staff now, who will increasingly
handle forum matters, including folks who misbehave.

Here's the Rules, so no whining about it later, eh?


Warn forumuser about post -- moderator, or any 1 Admin
Delete offensive post -- moderator, or any 1 Admin
Lock thread -- moderator, or any 1 Admin
Unlock thread -- moderator and any 2 Admin

Temporary 14 day posting ban of non-FSW forumuser -- any 1 Admin
Temporary 30 day posting ban of non-FSW forumuser -- any 2 Admin
Permanent ban (post and register) of non-FSW forumuser -- any 3 Admin

Temporary  7 day posting ban of FSW Associate or Member -- any 1 Admin
Temporary 14 day posting ban of FSW Associate or Member -- any 2 Admin
Temporary 30 day posting ban of FSW Associate or Member -- any 3 Admin

Permanent forum ban (post and register) of FSWer -- my call only (prefer support of 2 or more Admin).

I reserve the right to unilaterally apply any of the above, but I will not reverse admin decisions once made.
