  1. No illegal content.
  2. No foul, rude, or abusive language.  We are trying to maintain a family environment and such language is not appropriate or necessary.
  3. Do not misrepresent your identity or your affiliation with any person, nonprofit, organization, or business.
  4. Do not send junk email or spam to people who do not wish to receive mail from you.  This includes conducting, displaying, promoting or forwarding surveys, contests, raffles, lotteries, pyramid schemes or chain letters to FAS Users, whether or not such activity is generated on the FAS Website.
  5. You may not collect or store personal data about other Users including email addresses except where expressly authorized to do so.

We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express unpopular points of view.  But, we don’t permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).  Content with racist or extremist comments or content are not allowed.  This includes links to sites with such content.

Actions like predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, intimidation, invading privacy, revealing other people’s personal information, and inciting others to commit violent acts, crimes, or to violate the Terms of Use are taken very seriously at FAS.  Anyone caught doing these activities may be permanently banned from FAS and may be reported to law enforcement.
  8. Unsolicited posts by companies and/or individuals promoting themselves, a website, or a product are not allowed.

We Enforce These Guidelines

FAS staff periodically reviews content to determine whether it violates the Terms of Use.  However, FAS does not and cannot review all information and materials that may be viewed on the Website.   You acknowledge that FAS is acting as a conduit by allowing you to submit and view materials through the Website and is not liable for any content viewed through the Website.  When FAS reviews inappropriate content, FAS removes them if deemed appropriate in its sole and absolute discretion.
