How We Handle Things: We do not search the forums looking for problems. We depend on the members to report problem posts via the reported posts function in our software. Please remember that our moderators are musicians, just like you, and that they are unpaid volunteers. A moderator may delete a post or might send you a notice/warning to remind you of the rules. If a post is really over the line in our opinion, or if we notice that you have to be told too often about our rules, you may be suspended or banned, depending on the circumstances. Please don't report posts that don't break our rules. Just because you don't agree isn't a reason to report the post. Only report posts that break the rules.
Basic Philosophy: From a moderation standpoint, there are no wrong viewpoints and the moderator may even agree with your perspective but may need to take a moderating action because the post is written in a manner that violates the rules.
SUMMARY: Your membership to TGP is a privilege, not a right. If you don’t agree with the rules, you should find a discussion site that better meets your expectations. Although we value every member and want you to be here, if we feel that your membership hurts the experience for others, we may choose to suspend or ban you. We reserve the right to suspend or ban any member for any reason, not limited to the above rules.
