  • Hey guys, just doing some housekeeping and thought I would copy and paste the forum rules here :)

    This forum has a strict NO SPAM policy, please do not register here to spam your website or wares, doing so will ensure an immediate deletion, ban and censor of your website. Spam includes, SEO spam, affiliate links, links to products you sell, advertising or soliciting people to them. A Pinch of Health also reserves the right to ban anyone listed on any spam databases, suspected of spamming or showing suspicious behaviour consistent with spamming or malicious activity.

    Nowhere, within this website or forum should any material published, be taken as professional opinion or medical advice. Any reliance towards this website, shall be at the user's own risk.

    This forum is an independent support community only, where members can feel free to share their experiences, journeys and thoughts. Any moderator or administrator of this forum or website, shall be treated no differently, we are all just every day people within this community sharing our experiences, journeys and thoughts. No-one within this forum or website are to be treated as a professional. If you seek advice from a medical professional, then please see your doctor.

    Always, keep in mind when posting on the forum, that a persons expressions or feelings can't always be accurately conveyed within a post and thus, some posts may not come across the way the person intended. Please, always try to give the person the benefit of the doubt first.

    We ask all members to refrain from personal attacks, insults or judgements. Remember, you are not in their shoes and you likely don't know enough about a person to make such judgements, nor know the effects of your actions on said person.

    There will be members here, that follow various diets and have differing views on other diets, based on their own past experience or thoughts. Please try to allow each other the right to have an opinion and try not to take offence, if someone doesn't do well or like a diet that you're following. Their opinion is not directed at you, so please don't take it personally. We are all different and there is no "one size fits all". Of course, this forum is predominately a low carbohydrate based one, so please don't expect everyone to agree with you, if you come in saying "fat or meat is bad".

    Due to the well known risks of very low calorie diets, this website does not wish to encourage and promote such diets and thus, requests all members to respect this wish. Please do not use this forum, as a medium for promoting or encouraging others to follow such diets. Having said that, every individual has a right to diet as they wish and should not be judged for their decision as an individual, as no-one but they, are in their shoes. They should also respect others choices, not to follow such diets.

    Although the administrators and moderators of A Pinch of Health - Australian Low Carb Forum will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and neither the owners of A Pinch of Health - Australian Low Carb Forum, nor Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (developers of vBulletin) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

    By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

    The owners of A Pinch of Health - Australian Low Carb Forum reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

    Thank you :)

    I should probably add this here:

    Also, never post your email address here, this is not allowed as it will be picked up by various spam bots and the like as well as be identifying and open to abuse by spammers. If you wish to share your email address with someone, message them privately.
