  Insulin Pumpers Chat Room Guidelines

Insulin Pumpers Chat is a friendly chat and we are all here to get along, have fun, share our lives, and meet other people who are interested in diabetes and insulin pumps. To keep the chats pleasant, we have adopted the following rules.

  1. No name calling or insults: Be polite and respectful to all chatters, guests, and hosts.
  2. No advertising: Use of the chat rooms for commercial or non-commercial promotion or advertisement without the prior consent of Insulin Pumpers is prohibited. Posting links to private, non-commercial web pages is allowed as long as you're not selling anything and the page does not contain or promote racist, pornographic, or illegal content.
  3. No religious/political content in the main chat rooms: Please keep religious and political discussions to a minimum and preferably keep such topics in the Off-Topic room, which is set up for that purpose.
  4. No offensive content: The chat rooms are used by people of all ages. Offensive content will not be tolerated. Posting words or displaying behavior that is violent, obscene, crude, rude, pornographic, or in other ways offensive to others will not be tolerated. Remember, all chats are archived. Don't send a message that you would not want someone to see months down the road.
  5. Do not use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS: Using all capital letters is considered yelling.If you use caps all the time or too often, the Host/Admin will ask you to stop.
  6. No flooding: All forms of flooding are prohibited. Flooding is defined as continually saying the same thing over and over again (3 times or more), or typing random, meaningless letters/symbols repeatedly.
  7. Do not disrupt the flow of chat: Some users engage in this sort of activity to disrupt other users' chatting, slow down the server, or get attention.
  8. No spoofing: Forging the identity of a user or machine in an electronic communication, also commonly referred to as spoofing, is not permitted and will result in the suspension or revocation of your privileges.
  9. Abide by the wishes of the chat Host/Admin: In a chat, the Host/Admin is ultimately the one who determines what is appropriate and what is not. If the Host/Admin asks you to stop doing something, stop doing it. You can write to if you feel you have been treated unfairly, but you must obey the request of the Host/Admin.
Insulin Pumpers reserves the right to suspend or revoke the membership privileges of anyone it believes to have violated the spirit or intent of these or other rules of conduct for participation in its forums.

If you believe that someone has acted in violation of these rules, please report the member name, time, chat name, and circumstances to in a timely fashion.
