Virtual Jeep Club Rules

Welcome to www.virtualjeepclub.com: a diverse online community of Jeepers and Off-road enthusiasts dedicated to sharing the wonders of the Jeeping world in a safe, workplace friendly environment.

Please feel free to bookmark this page so you can refer to it whenever you deem necessary. This is a workplace and FAMILY friendly board. While the Moderators will do their best to keep it that way, it's impossible for us to review every post. Because all posts are the opinions of their respective authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of www.virtualjeepclub.com, we are not responsible for their content, authenticity or accuracy. If any post seems to violate the spirit of this concept, please use the button Report Bad Post (Report Bad Post) at the bottom of the post to notify us. While we encourage discussion about a wide range of subjects, there are certain areas which elicit more animosity and subsequently far more flames. Consequently we ask that discussions involving politics, religion, and nationalities or anything of a sexual nature be reserved for our "Off Topic" section. Our Off-topic forum IS NOT however, the place for sexual discussions and sexually explicit photographs will not be tolerated in any forum at any time. This is a safety oriented board. While there is a lot to be learned here, we strongly advise against learning how to drive offroad on your own. A formal class or driving with an experienced instructor is the only way to do this safely, and we encourage you to avail yourself to obtain as much formal training as possible before attempting to drive your vehicle offroad. It is important that members recognize the inherent dangers in off highway vehicle use and by agreeing to this TOS document, you agree to exempt and release any owner, administrator, moderator, and anyone acting in an official capacity for virtualjeepclub.com from all liability or responsibility whatsoever for any personal injury, property damage or wrongful death however caused, including but not limited to the negligence of the released parties, whether passive or active. The Moderators have the last word in any dispute and are responsible for interpreting the TOS. At their discretion, when they deem it in the best interest of the virtualjeepclub, they may edit or delete avatars, pictures, posts and threads, and even ban users when necessary. The creation of multiple accounts ("sock puppets") for one person is prohibited. Membership is a privilege, not a right. We reserve the right to deny service to any person at any time with or without cause or notification. No post should exceed a "workplace friendly" rating (defined). Profane, insulting or mean spirited language is simply not allowed here. Neither is any sort of harassment or bullying. Threats of any sort are grounds for immediate banishment. While the debates may wax passionate, there is no need to revert to personal attacks. If you feel that you have been attacked, please do not retaliate and instead use this button Report Bad Post (Report Bad Post) at the bottom of the post to notify us.
