Terms and rules

Flyers Forum is an ad-free, publicly readable (i.e. you don't need to create an account to read posts and user content is readable by search engines,) and mostly user-moderated forum for aviation discussions.

The forum software allows you to block from your view all the posts of other selected users and also disallow selected users from seeing your posts. You must accept this user-level moderation as the primary means of moderation, as the forum operators will generally not act against a poster because of complaints about the content of their posts.

While the forum operators will not generally moderate postings or ban users (having not listed any specific rules,) you must accept that because legal and moral judgments vary on what constitutes porn, hate speech, copyright violations, libel, defamation, and other legally constrained speech categorizations, we reserve the right to apply our personal judgment (and fear of litigation) when deciding whether to delete or temporarily hide any post you make or ban you entirely. And unless it is clear to the operators that you're deliberately acting as a complete jerk we will generally first ask you to edit such posts or warn you before banning you.

Users retain copyright over their own posts. A poster may ask to have a post they made to a thread on another forum be copied to Flyers Forum (FF). In order to properly establish the copied post's context on FF, the post that started the thread on the other forum will also be copied to FF. Since the requester may not have started the thread on that other forum, a stub account in the name of the thread starter will be created on FF for proper attribution and context. If the owner of a stubbed account objects to such minimal use they should contact FF admins with any take-down notice at dmca (at) flyersforum.org. Or if so inclined they may contact the FF admins if they wish to assume control of the FF stub account.
