20. Any discussion of AD BLOCKING software or instruction for using ad blocking regarding this forum or any other discussion in general of attempting to block advertisement will result in a no questions asked permanent ban on your account.

It takes money to finance the cost of bandwidth, especially a forum of this size and if you don't care enough to support us through our advertisers, then we don't need your business. This will be the only warning with no discussion.
21. If you encounter an actual troll post, or any very odd post, report it so that moderation can delete it. Then ignore it-- do not reply, do not address individual trolls in any way.
