Welcome to the Kathurufani Online Community Forum
To create a nice atmosphere and a feeling of security as well as to avoid misunderstandings we thought that some guidelines might be appropriate for this forum. To maintain our forum as nice as possible we will make sure that you all are fine and enjoy writing to each other and to us.
We try to follow the so-called netiquette as much as possible, in cases where our rules cannot be applied directly. For the Forum to work in a nice way, our guests and members must follow the laws as well as the moral and ethics that apply to anyone using the Internet in general. Seeing as this is an international forum, the official language spoken here is English. We request all visitors to respect this rule.
Considering the real-time nature of this bulletin board, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we do not actively monitor the contents of posted messages and are 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 forum or any entity associated with this forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email (see below). 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. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.
We at this forum also reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you) in the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.
We reserve the right to move, edit or delete contributions to the forum, whenever we find it appropriate.
