We invite your participation in the Talk Tennis message boards, as long as you’re willing to abide by a few basic policies.
1. No obscene or profane language is allowed. This one’s pretty easy – none of the "Big 7" dirty words you used to not be able to say on television are allowed. Our moderating filter is designed to catch these words. Any that slip through will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be asked to discontinue. Persistent offenders will be blocked from the boards.
2. No personal attacks or abusive language is allowed. If you have a problem with someone, take it off of Talk Tennis. Antagonistic behavior will not be tolerated. Debating issues and opinions is fine, but flaming and insulting won’t be tolerated.
3. No promotion or advertising of Tennis Warehouse competitors allowed. This is our message board and we pay to maintain it. If you want to discuss a competitor, please be respectful of our request and do this privately, not on Talk Tennis.
4. The For Sale/Trade forum is provided for sales of used, personal equipment. No sales of new products are allowed. No dealers or anyone in the business of selling racquets. This applies to the Classifieds section. Tennis Warehouse is in business to sell tennis equipment. Please feel free to sell used personal gear only. Any posts advertising new products will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be banned from Talk Tennis. Also, no links to E-Bay auctions are allowed. For sale posts and messages are permitted in the For Sale forum only. Posts in other forums will be removed and may result in the user being banned. No for sale posting or commercial links in signatures or user profiles.
5. No pornography. If you choose to include attached images, that’s fine. Just keep it clean and avoid any that could be interpreted as porn – soft or hard. There’s a wide range of ages that post on Talk Tennis and we want material posted to be acceptable to all.
6. No commercial solicitation.
7. No spamming forums with off topic posts. Spamming the forums will result in an immediate ban.
Tennis Warehouse reserves the right to block access to Talk Tennis for anyone who chooses not to abide by the policies listed above. Thanks for your cooperation and participation on Talk Tennis.
Especially with the controversy on the boards, I think it is wise to review the rules with which we agreed when we signed up for the forums.
