Default Question for the Lawyers!!!!!

Welcome to the NEW Sand Bar Forum area.

In keeping with many policies including US Govt. laws there are now restrictions set for what can be posted on this Forum.

1) Media Files: Any movies, images, or other media files posted anywhere on The Hull Truth may not contain nudity or be sexually explicit in nature. Bikini images are fine and encouraged. Do not post any even slightly erotic images of persons that appear under the age of 18 years old. (You shouldn't do this anyway).

2) Models/participants in any images posted on The Sand Bar Forum must be known to be, or appear to be over 18 years of age. Images of any models, regardless of image rating, must not try to depict themself as being a minor.

3) Pictures of girls in bikinis appear to be OK to post as long as they aren't engaging in sexual activity - do this often!

4) Topless images are NOT OK to post.

5) Erotic cartoons appear to be OK to post as surprizingly the US Government appears to realize cartoons aren't real people.
Keep in mind however they may not be of a pornographic nature.

6) It appears (for now anyway) you still have freedom of speech and can post dirty words to your delight.

7) Edited pictures of sexual poses are NOT OK to post. ie. No blotting out the naughty bits of what was originally a hardcore image.


THESE RULES APPLY TO OFFSITE LINKING AS WELL!!

If you are posting images that display the VAGINA, PENIS or ANUS area they will be deleted!
If you post multiple images and one violates the rule above then the entire thread will be deleted - not just the individual attachments.

If a member continues to post images of the VAGINA, PENIS or ANUS area they will lose their posting rights to this forum.

It falls under the record keeping requirements of 18 USC sec2257:

I have personally represented a few adult websites and it is pretty easy to comply with 2257.
