Everyone please read

  1. Brian and the moderator's have come to the conclusion that we are going to be forced to strictly enforce the TOS. We tried a relaxed atmosphere, but the profanity and personal attacks have just run rampant. Please keep this in mind when posting from this point forward. Refrain from using profanity (even disguised profanity) and/or personal attacks. Let's debate respectfully.

    Today, we will begin removing/editing posts that are in violation of TOS. This is necessary for the enjoyment of ALL nurses .

    Thank you for keeping within the TOS of our wonderful bb!

    I have a question about the TOS. When we post an article verbatim from a copywritten source, (say the NYTimes) is this against the TOS? I have done this in a FYI manner as have others, but I am confused about whether it is OK.

    If something is written that violated the TOS, would it be possible to PM the poster that violated the TOS to let them know so that they will not do it again?

    Since Nurse4Kids posted this thread at the top of the War and Terrorism Board I never thought I was supposed to ask this question anyplace else. I did not PM her becasue I felt that if I was confused about the use of copywritten materials, other people might be also.

    Oh good, Sunny. Between the TOS and the spelling/grammer police I don't know what the heck to post anymore!!!

    Been so busy with other parts of the board, i didn't see these posts..oops

    I don't THINK that is what the TOS are talking about, but I honestly don't know. I do know that copywrite has NOT been a problem at all, so I see no need to change anything anyone's been doing.

    Definitely! It's not like we're just dying to suspend/ban people..not like we're waiting on someone to mess up so we can jump. We want this to work. We will definitely send a pm to the offender asking them to refrain from doing "whatever" in the future.

    Nurs4kids, thanks, I have not been on this board for very long as you can see. But it was love at first posting. I am still not too sure of myself when I post and have a problem of just barging in. Thanks for such a quick response.
