Freya, thanks for writing these! I have a few more, you might want to add:

-No rudeness in Private Message's
-If someone doesn't want to be a friend, they don't have to

I forgot to say that I agree to the rules.

Bianca 06-01-2008 10:22 PM

I agree to the rules completely, but would also like to add a few rules.
'No posting obscene material' and 'Do not criticize someone for their religion, background, etc.'

Joshzoom41 06-01-2008 11:41 PM

those rules are great. we have to make sure we protect the kids that log on here, since they are who BABV was actually created for, even though sometimes it seems the adults out-number them!

mikaelascubabear 06-01-2008 11:44 PM
