Most people already knew not to do this but we are seeing some creep in that are not about copyright so have added this to the top rule

 

Now the rules are nicely linked at the top of the forum on the front page, I have made it easy at a glance to see what the rules are, quickly

I have also added the Good Members to this thread as it stands so far

 

Please read


Note.. we will not discuss action taken with any other member than the one concerned.
