Caution for Our Members
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:41:47 PM »
Many of us arrive here vulnerable, used to helping others, sometimes codependent. Not all but by nature that's who many of us are and we struggle. At the same time others might notice that tendency and see us as an easy target, prey for them to take advantage of, looking for hand outs.

The internet being what it is and the forum being publicly viewable, we try to keep an eye out and try to protect the members keeping this a safe place.


If you receive requests for help or money via pm please report to moderators for your own protection and that of other members. There is a link at the bottom of each pm to report the message to the moderating team.


Our Member Posting Guidelines:

Confidentiality:
Confidentiality is important to the safety of everybody on our board. It is strongly recommended that members not directly or indirectly disclose their own identity. Itís not uncommon for members to discover that the person with a personality disorder in their life has been reading at this site.

You are also discouraged from registering with a user name, email address or avatar that could be recognized. Sites such as Yahoo and Google offer free anonymous email hosting. You are strongly encouraged not to register using any email address that other people may have access to as the board will occasionally send information about your account to that address.

Please donít post any information that directly or indirectly discloses the identity of family members, friends or relationship partners. This includes (but is not limited to) direct information such as real names, photographs, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc., as well as, indirect information such as pet names, local venues, etc.

If you should accidentally post information which compromises the confidentiality of yourself or someone close to you, you may contact a moderator or administrator designating the specific confidential information to be removed. One administrative edit, of up to a maximum of 3 posts, will be given to each member. After the first request, subsequent requests to edit posts by the same member will be denied.

Do not copy the contents of personal communications, email, social media posts, personal messages, texts and telephone conversations verbatim into posts.

Members having off-board information about another member shall not disclose it.

Do not solicit personal contact information from other members on the boards or in PM, as this is considered a violation of privacy. If someone volunteers their information in a personal context, it is their right to do so, but you are under no obligation to reciprocate. Please respect the privacy of others as you wish your own privacy to be respected. If someone solicits personal contact information from you and the solicitation makes you uncomfortable in any way, you are encouraged to report the incident to any Moderator or Administrator.

Any information posted which reveals identifying information about another individual will be modified or removed by the moderators.


Please help us to keep OOTF a safe place for everyone here.

Please refer to the Out of the FOG Member Guidelines for more information about posting rules and moderation policies. All members sign and agree to these guidelines at registration.

Thanks,
Regards,
The Out of the FOG Team.
