Message Board Rules
Revised March 17, 2008
Welcome to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors’ (InterNACHI’s) free photo message board. While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws, we will not moderate any idea or concept. Offensive terms may be obfuscated or censored all-together, but no post will be edited beyond this point. Please understand, though, that it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the post’s author and not the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors or its employees and volunteers, and hence these parties will not be held liable. You also agree that the exclusive venue for any litigation against InterNACHI, its agents, or employees arising or allegedly arising out of their use of this message board or any comments on it shall be in the District Court for Boulder County, Colorado.
You agree not to post any aforementioned content. In some extreme cases, doing so may lead to you being permanently banned from this board (and your service provider being informed). In other cases these topics may be locked such that no further posts can be added. The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.
You agree to post your topics in the appropriate forum. Improperly placed topics will typically not be deleted, but may be moved.
You understand that nothing may be copied from the private sections of this message board without expressed permission from all parties involved in that topic. All comments on this message board are the property of their respective poster. InerNACHI, however, reserves a world-wide, perpetual, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform, and publicly display any post on its website.
You agree that, should this message board’s policy ever change, the webmaster, administrator and moderators of this forum may have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree the all information you provide can be stored in a database. While personal information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator, moderators and InterNACHI cannot be held responsible for any event (such as a hacking attempt) that may lead to the data being compromised.
Remember, debate is not only welcomed it is encouraged. Personal attacks for reasons of race, religion, sexual orientation, et cetera, or postings, which are profane or are meant to defame our membership, will not be tolerated. Offending parties may be asked to change their post, or may be permanently banned from this board. Nonmember guests are welcome posters at this board, but please remember you are a guest and act accordingly.
Many of the sections on this message board are open to all, including non-members, to promote discourse throughout the inspection community. Certain sections are visible to all, but don’t allow participation by non-members. The original intent of creating such sections was to provide InterNACHI members a safe haven to communicate to the entire industry without interference from non-members. Using the shield of such sections to taunt non-members who have no opportunity to defend themselves or their position is considered abuse of the protection provided and contrary to InterNACHI’s free speech goals. Members desiring to engage non-members directly are encouraged to use the many other sections where all may participate.
