If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact a member of the SECTalk Team.

Moderation

  • Although the administrators and moderators of the SECTalk Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages.
  • All offenses will be handled appropriately with an initial warning before any infractions are issued.
  • By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
  • While these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.
  • The SECTalk Team reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread or post for any reason without notice.
Social Groups

  • Social Groups are not moderated by the staff of SECTalk.com. However, they are monitored by the SECTalk Administrators.
  • The person who creates or is given overall control of a Social Group  by the group creator is solely responsible for membership and content of  their group. The group controller has final say in his or her group. If  a dispute arises in a group, the group controller has the right request  for a SECTalk Administrator to handle the situation.
  • If a Social Group contains adult content, the controller of that  group is responsible for ensuring that all members are over the age of  18.
  • Content posted in the Social Groups is not to be shared outside that group without permission from the group controller.
  • Social groups are not to be used as a means to coordinate personal attacks on people outside the groups.
  • Any disputes or feuds between social groups that spread to the boards will result in staff action to resolve the issue.
  • If a group becomes habitually disruptive on the open boards or  habitually attacks people outside the group this group will receive a  warning against such behavior. If the warning does not stop the  disruptive behavior or attacks, the group will be disbanded.
Team Forums

  • Team Forums are assigned a moderator from the team's own fanbase who is responsible for all moderation within that forum.
  • In addition, Super Moderators and Administrators can moderate those forums when necessary.
  • Fans of other teams are to behave as guests when visiting other team forums.
  • Members who incessantly troll within team forums could be banned from specific team threads or specific team forums entirely at the discretion of the team moderator.
   Staff Disputes

  • Any disputes with the staff of SECTalk.com will be handled in private through the Private Message System or via e-mail. If you wish to escalate any issue with staff then please use the contact form.
  • Discussing ongoing issues with a staff member in a public avenue will not be tolerated and could result in disciplinary action.
  Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

  • All messages express the views of the author, and neither L&M Sports Media, LLC (owners of SECTalk.com), nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.
