As the owner of this site, I've put alot of effort into making TennSpeed.net a very open community, but with all things, there must be rules. We would appreciate it if you would read the rules before posting. Ignorance is no excuse, so please be aware that you are required to adhere to the rules regardless of having been aware of them or not.

If you have a dispute with a particular rule, please contant me or another moderator first about the situation. We understand that situations that require special attention will occur, and we are prepared to deal with them. We only ask that you contact an administrator or moderator if first if you find something questionable, do not post about it publicly.


1. Excessive Bashing and/or Flaming: This will not be tolerated. I understand that people have disagreements and differences of opinions. All we ask is that you deal with others respectfully and show some courtesy. I know that people are going to argue on the internet, but everyone knows whats acceptable and what isn't. Don't make things personal. We want the forums to reflect a positive atmosphere, so please keep this in mind before you say something that may be disrespectful or extremely negative.

2. Spam: If you would like to advertise another site, we have no problems with you placing links in your signature. Also, you are free to discuss sites, products, etc. as well, but excessive posting and repetative comments will not be tolerated. If you are not sure about something, contact a moderator for approval before posting.

Spam- n.
Unsolicited e-mail, often of a commercial nature, sent indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups; junk e-mail.
tr.v., spammed, spam•ming, spams.

1. To send unsolicited e-mail to.
2. To send (a message) indiscriminately to multiple mailing lists, individuals, or newsgroups.

3.) Personal Drama: This is an automotive forum - the posts and subject matter doesn't need to get excessively personal and we definitely don't need drama. THIS INCLUDES LOVE TRIANGLES - if you're in one them please don't start drama with your ex, your ex's ex, baby momma, or whoever that is also a member here.

4.) Work Safe Content: Please make sure anything you post outside of the Black Hole (including images) is appropriate for people of all ages. Anything that is not appropriate must be posted within a topic that includes [NWS] in the title. Extremely tasteless content and/or pornography will be removed.

5.) Misinformation: We understand that everyone makes mistakes, but please do not knowingly post information if you are not sure how accurate it may be.

6.) Discrimination: We will not tolerate racism, sexual discrimination, or any other form of discrimination on this site.

7.) Pointless Posts: Please make sure to avoid all irrelevant discussion within a topic. The following are examples of pointless posting:

---Posts which contain no relevant contribution to the thread, topic, or site.

---Posting responses to a thread for the sole purpose of boosting post count.

---Posting derogatory and/or 1-word answers to a topic.

---Posts/Threads that are meaningless and lack the ability to elicit thought-provocative responses.

---Posting a short/simple response which shows you replied to the title and not the topic..

The only place this rule does not apply would be in the off-topic section, but please try not to be too excessive about it there if the post has a specific topic requesting specific answers. Use your best judgement, please.

CONSEQUENCES: If the offense is not extreme, you will receive a warning. The thread may be locked and the post may be deleted. If the problem becomes habitual, you may lose privileges on the forum (avatars, posting, messages, etc.) and/or receive further disciplinary action. If the problem is severe your account may be banned. In extreme cases, IP bans will be given, as well.

Thank you all for taking the time to read these rules. We appreciate all your support and effort to maintain a clean forum here at TennSpeed.net, and we look forward to seeing you around!
