Taking an active part in the forums is therefore possible only after you have registered and provided a valid email address, fist name, last name and the land where you living at this time. When you change your email address, you should update your registration.

    Each account without a valid email address or without valid firstname or family name will be blocked. Changing of your pseudonym shoud be an exception.

    Writing postings

    The postings in our forums are openly acessible. You should scrutinise your contribution before publishing it, so it does not contain any non-public material. You have to consider the fact that your postings might be retrieved and indexed by search engines, and therefore be made available globally. You have no entitlement for deletion or modification of aforementioned postings against the publishing house.

    We reserve the right to delete from our forums contributions that violate these rules and to close the accounts in question, either indefinitely or for a limited time.

    We find it unfortunate that these rules are necessary, but the experience of many ther communities with "fully open" discussion forums proved unacceptable from both a legal and subject-matter point of view. Please don't feel restrained by these rules but go ahead and open an account. We look forward to your engaged, critical and informative contribution.
