Board Rules

Moderator will BAN anyone who posts more than one inflammatory post WITHOUT prior warning

The Stalking Victims Sanctuary reserves the right to take whatever action is considered necessary to keep the peace. The moderator will edit or delete messages when they contain profanity, off-topic content or violate the board rules in some other ways. Threads will be moved when posted in the inappropriate forum. Threads will be closed when the discussion gets off-topic, becomes too long, or when further discussion is not desired.

In return for your cooperation, the Stalking Victims Sanctuary administrators commit to following the rules themselves, and to promoting a safe place for sharing and healing.
