posting guidelines? Can't Post

I just read in one of the forums someone (i'm assuming from p&w) asking someone to edit their post according to the 'guidelines'. i searched around a bit for so-called posting guidelines but couldn't find anything. if there is such concern with us using certain guidelines to post, shouldnt' they be more visible on more pages? Can someone direct me to the guidelines so I can make sure I'm not breaking any rules (maybe I have already, eh?)?

Thanks, R.

Re: [ronagirl] posting guidelines? [In reply to] Can't Post

The guidelines for Speakeasy used to fill part of a page.
Now they are simply as follows:

"Please note that we request that users post ideas and
opinions in a respectful manner. Poets & Writers reserves
the right to delete posts, topics, and the accounts of
users who violate this guideline. Poets & Writers also
deletes outdated topics on an ongoing basis."

The above quote may be found by clicking on "About Us"
below the Poets & Writers Banner on each page. Once you
get to that page, there is a list on the left. Click on
"Speakeasy Message Forum" and you will get the above
quote.

If this is not what you mean, my apologies. Motet will
direct you further if you need more information.

In addition to the above guideline, the administration has
suggested that we refrain from namecalling and direct
attacks on posters. We should address ideas.

The new Speakeasy also asks that writers not post
their original writing. Posters may quote brief lines
from writing to illustrate a point if the source is
given, but mainly this forum concentrates on
discussion of writing and literature rather than
on posting original work.
