    We've had to put a few accounts on moderation after several warnings, it's important that members follow the rules. Please keep to the existing threads and do not post repetitive content. It looks like spam and only upsets members.

    Another quick reminder about the post above. It has come to our attention that some members are unhappy about our recent moderation. Last week we were very public about putting accounts on moderation if they continually break the forum rules. We’re going to make this post a featured post, to make sure everyone sees this.

    If your account is on moderation, it will be taken off moderation if you post an intro and/or follow the forum rules.

    For the record, we never censor content (just look at the recent thread history), DNTrade always promotes free speech. However, we can’t have people breaking the forum rules and ignoring moderators requests. We’ve been dealing with an increasing number of complaints and emails about posts on the forum, and the volume keeps increasing from members across the board. We only request that all members remain respectful and follow the forum rules which exist to benefit everyone.

    We need to leave this up for a while longer.

    If you’ve just signed up and find you can’t post, please note that you must make an intro. Accounts that send rude or abusive email or messages to the admin team will not be approved and will be permanently banned.

    We’ve always let members have their say, even when it’s criticism of DNTrade itself, sponsors or other members. The world and web is made up of many opinions, and while we don’t agree with everyone, we do support the right for everyone to have a voice and have their say. Whether you’re pro or anti direct registration, new gTLDs, the old or new auDA board etc., you can have your say, as long as you follow forum rules and respect one another.

    Constructive discussion is always welcome, however, if your only reason for joining DNTrade is to attack another member, this is not the place for you.
