SHG® Forums & Groups
1. No posting of overt advertisements for your products or services are allowed. All posts of this nature will be deleted without notice. This includes any article that is deemed to be simply an advertisement for your products or services posted under the guise of informing members about their benefits or features affecting an issue or topic in discussion.
2. No posting of discussion material that takes the member off the discussion page to read an article, post or other information.
3. No ad hominem attacks or posting of any material deemed offensive. [Abusive ad hominem (also called personal abuse or personal attacks) usually involves insulting or belittling one’s opponent in order to invalidate their argument, but can also involve pointing out factual but apparent character flaws or actions that are irrelevant to the opponent’s argument. This tactic is logically fallacious because insults and negative facts about the opponent’s personal character have nothing to do with the logical merits of the opponent’s arguments or assertions.]
4. Violation of any of these rules may result in your membership being revoked without warning or notice.
5. You may not solicit any member for the purpose of selling any product or service.
6. No posting of copyrighted material of which you are not the author or are not the authorized person with authority to distribute or share such material.
