Forum Rules

1. Formiculture.com reserves the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

4. No posting any spam messages, including excessive posting of messages that add little to no value to the topic of conversation.

5. No harassing or spamming other members/users of Formiculture.com, either through private messages or through email addresses given in confidence by other Formiculture.com users.

6. No posting any deliberately false or misleading information. This particular rule pertains to the chat room as well.

7. Post in legible, coherent English, without excessive use of emoticons, slang, chat acronyms, or instant messenger shorthand.

8. Buying, selling, or trading queen ants is not illegal in most places, including the US, however, what is illegal a lot of times, is shipping or transporting them. Here in the US it is illegal to ship or transport queen ants across state borders. The scientific community also strongly discourages this because of the harm that can be done to the local ecosystem. Because of this, making any arrangements to illegally ship or transport ants is strictly forbidden on Formiculture.com.

9. Any attempt to find or exploit a bug in the site code, "hack", or commission any sort of attack on the website will result in a permanent ban.
