member behavior​, subscription, and accounts

I have a zero tolerance policy for rude and stupid. Fortunately that's not an issue here because only friends become members, but my attorney tells me I have to post all of this anyway:

  • Members who post rude and/or derogatory comments will be banned without notice.

  • Members without appropriate credentials who are willfully posting inaccurate medical and/or veterinary information presented as fact will be banned without notice. This does not refer to the presentation of opinions or ideas.

  • No fake or duplicate accounts are allowed; the name you subscribe with MUST be your real name.

  • Members who violate these policies and the Terms of Use will be banned without notice.

  • Members who enjoy a status of permanent blocking on the TPO Facebook page will be banned without notice if their accounts are found on this site.

  • Any accounts remaining inactive (e.g., no log-ins) for three months or more may be deleted without notice. Anyone with a deleted account can simply re-send a member request.

  • Banning is permanent for the life of this website.

These terms are subject to change without notice.
