The rules below will help you better understand online community etiquette and behavior.
Treat Others the Way You Want to Be Treated
Please live by this rule. Remember that the words you see on the screen were put there by other human beings. These people have feelings too. Read your message before you submit it to make sure you're polite, considerate, and kind. Sometimes this means you'll have to turn the other cheek, but you, and the community as a whole, will be better off for doing so. The Topretirements.com community is a chance to connect with other people and to share important experiences. Always remember to be respectful and sensitive to other community members.
No Liability.While the administrators and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or site owner (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold Topretirements.com harmless with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s).

You will not post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. The same goes for political statements or bashing the people of different regions. We want this site to be fun and informative - not anyone's soapbox. Violating these guidelines might lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that the administrator and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent (other than inlegal action cited below) the site owner cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised.
