Please remember that Nutley NJ Hometown is not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.
The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of this bulletin board. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email or by clicking the "report" line appearing adjacent to each posting.We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary.
You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this bulletin board to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violate any law.
We emphasize the rules against being hateful, using profanity and inappropriate sexual references. In general, do not direct your comments toward another board member. Do not use the forum to send messages, pro or con, to another member. Use your own email instead. Do not attempt to suggest profanity or name-calling by substituting letters with ** markings.
Finally, be careful not to post questions such as "Is it true that Commissioner Whomever has been charged with embezzlement." Unfortunately, there are a large number of statements posted on the Nutley forum that are not accurate, or only partially so. Also be sure that your own messages contain accurate information before posting your comments on the world wide web.
Be especially careful when replying to a comment that you do not inadvertently "copy" inappropriate messages or language.
The NJHometown site and message board was created to promote community spirit, interest, information and volunteerism. Keep in mind that messages are read by persons of all ages.
As a rule, we do not respond to inquiries as to why a person may have been suspended. However, some reasons for recent suspensions at times will be listed at the end of these guidelines.
Finally, you must agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this bulletin board.
Here are some of the most recent reasons why members have been suspended from the Message Board:
* Libelous comment calling a person a rapist.
* Inappropriate language attempted by using "***" marks.
* For the first time ever. we've "closed" a topic (2/13/09) because of inappropriate language. (The use of the word "bitch" in a thread dealing with U.S. Presidential candidates.)
* Special emphasis that we will more strongly enforce our rules regarding abusive, hateful and harassing messages - and messages that are directed to another member. Please note that our rules prohibit exchanging or directing messages to a specific member. If you make any kind of derogatory remark about a specific member, you will be prohibited from using this Message Board. This is not to exclude intelligent criticism of another's opinion. But when it comes to addressing another board member, if you have nothing positive and constructive to say, then say nothing.
