The Left Wing Lock Forums were created as an uncensored message board based around the discussion of fantasy hockey, as well as hockey in general. Left Wing Lock Forums does not allow registration for users younger than 13 years of age due to the language allowed and the nature of content posted in off-topic forums.

The staff of www.LeftWingLock.com reserves the right to remove any post or user from our message boards. Posts are usually deleted when they violate one or more of the board rules. Repeated violation of these rules may result in a suspension from board privileges, or in rare cases, the user may be permanently banned from Left Wing Lock Forums.

As a registered user of Left Wing Lock Forums you agree to the following rules:

1. You agree through the use of these message boards that you will not “troll” the forums or chat room. An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum or chat room, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional response or to generally disrupt normal on-topic discussion. Trolling is not allowed at Left Wing Lock Forums on the message boards or in the chat room. Anyone deemed to be participating in trolling will be immediately and permanently banned from the site.

2. You agree through the use of these message boards that you will not “spam” the forums or chat room. Forum spam is the posting of advertisements, abusive or unwanted messages on Internet forums. Spam is generally posted by automated spambots. Anyone deemed to be participating in spamming will be immediately and permanently banned from the site. If you wish to advertise a product, web site, or service, please contact Left Wing Lock Forums at advertise@leftwinglock.com and we will be glad to discuss potential advertising opportunities on the site.

3. You agree through the use of these message boards that you will not register under multiple user IDs. If you are caught registering and posting under multiple (more than one) user ID, you will be banned permanently.

4. You agree through the use of these message boards that you will not post any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, invasive of a person's privacy (including the use of someone’s real name without their permission), or otherwise in direct violation of any law. Anyone found posting such material will be permanently banned.

5. You agree through the use of these message boards that you will not attempt to manipulate your posts to avoid the censorship filter. While we strive to maintain an uncensored forum, there are certain words that are not allowed. If you attempt to divert the censorship filter on these forums, you will be permanently banned.

6. You agree through the use of the message boards that you will not impersonate any person or entity or misrepresent your identity or affiliation with any person or entity. (An example would be claiming you are a member of the media or an athlete or claiming to have a relationship with a member of the media or an athlete.) Such action will result in a permanent ban.

7. You agree through the use of the message boards that you will not post inflammatory material toward another member of the forums based upon Race, Religion, Gender, or Sexual Orientation. Posting of blatant hate speech will not be tolerated on these forums. Such actions will result in a permanent ban.

8. You agree through the use of the message boards that you will not post material that is in violation of US copyright law. Posts containing copyrighted material will be deleted and users making these posts will receive warnings for first-time offenses and bannings for subsequent offenses.

9. You agree through the use of the message boards that you will not post material from the Left Wing Lock Forums (and the accompanying website) on other websites without explicit permission from the Left Wing Lock staff.
