Rules and Restrictions on Submissions
Users should exercise common sense and courtesy in submitting comments or materials for posting on the Blog (“Submissions”). Inappropriate Submissions would include, for example, comments or materials that:
make false or defamatory statements about others;
are obscene, vulgar, abusive, hateful or threatening;
harass or discriminate on the basis of race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference or other factors;
are invasive of the privacy rights of others (e.g., by including addresses, phone numbers or other personal information about third persons without their consent.)
Submissions may not include content or materials that violate the copyrights, trademark rights or other intellectual property rights of third parties.
Submissions may not contain unauthorized disclosures of proprietary or confidential information.
Users may not use the Blog in a manner or for a purpose that could violate federal or state antitrust laws. For example, the Blog may not be used to communicate with competitors about prices, discounts, market shares, sales territories, or other terms or conditions of trade.
Users may not use the Blog to promote or provide instructional information about illegal activities or for any purpose that may be illegal.
Due to the Code-or-die.com’s status as a tax-exempt organization and legal limitations on its activities, User Submissions may not contain comments or materials supporting or opposing any candidates for political office or otherwise engage in political activity or activity inconsistent with the Code-or-die.com’s purposes.
Users may not use or attempt to use the Blog for commercial purposes. Submissions may not include advertisements for goods or services, solicitations, “spam”, chain letters, surveys, pyramid schemes or the like.
Submissions may not include false or misleading representations of affiliation with any other person or entity. A User may not employ false identifiers to impersonate any person or entity or to misrepresent or disguise the true origin of any content.
The Code-or-die.com believes that anonymous postings are neither necessary for purposes of this forum, nor consistent with the professional level of dialogue expected. Therefore, the User’s name (which must be provided) will be posted with the Submission.
