Do try to avoid ambiguity by using the "smileys" available at the bottom of the posting window. Written communication lacks the visual cues of face-to-face dialogue and can easily be misinterpreted. The use of irony, no matter how well-intentioned, is particularly susceptible to misinterpretation!
Avoid profanities or foul language. This includes in topic titles. We have word
filters in place and any attempts to get around these will result in your post
being edited. Excessive and/or continuous use of foul language will result in
an official warning from the Administrators.
Do not include racial, ethnic, gender, sexual preference or personal insults
Do not start a thread that is hostile to individuals. Any posting deemed to be
a direct or indirect attack on any member of the tango community will be
removed without warning. Continuous attempts to start this kind of thread will
result in an official warning from the Administrators.
Any thread that is a spin-off of an already deleted thread, will also be
deleted. As will any thread that is started for the sole purpose of putting
