Communicating in a chat room
or on message boards is different from face-to-face communication. Only the
words are seen, not your facial expressions or tone of voice. Please pay careful
attention to how you use your words.
Remember that the words you
enter in a burst of passion or indignant anger will be there for you and
everyone else to see, sometimes long after those intense feelings have passed.
That's not meant to discourage spontaneity, but just a friendly reminder of the
long-term existence and effects of what you post.
You may, from time to time,
find yourself in disagreement with someone else's opinion. At times like these,
please keep in mind it's safer and more polite to take issue with the comments
rather than the person.
By using the Pro Football
Hall of Fame and Sportvision's service, you agree that you will not
post any of the following material in chat rooms, bulletin boards, or
Any communication that is
intended to harass, belittle, humiliate, threaten or cause embarrassment to a
fellow member. Material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language or
images. Any communication that contains spam (multiple copies in one area or the
same communication in multiple areas). Material that defames, abuses or
threatens others. Statements that are bigoted, hateful or racially offensive.
Material that advocates illegal activity or discusses illegal activities with
the intent to commit them. Unauthorized copyrighted material. Advertising or any
form of commercial solicitation. Material that does not pertain to the room or
bulletin board's given topic.
Statements or postings that
violate the above terms will be deleted from postings upon discovery.
Depending on the nature of the violation, profootballhof.com and/or Sportvision at their sole discretion may terminate a customer's account.
