Updated November 25, 2017: 1) DeathAddict.com is strictly for adults 18 years of age or older. No Exceptions. 2) Child pornography will not be tolerated in any form or fashion. Users posting such content will be banned immediately. We will cooperate fully with any law enforcement agencies contacting us in reference to any content containing such material. If the age of the individual(s) in the post is even remotely questionable, do NOT post it. 3) Accusing other users of being pedophiles, whether seriously or in jest, will not be tolerated. You will be banned. 4) Posting of other users’ personal information or images without their permission is strictly forbidden. If it hasn’t been written publicly on this site, and this site alone, it is off limits to divulge. (i.e. names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, instant messaging usernames, etc.) 5) Sharing of private messages publicly is forbidden. Unless someone has sent you a message threatening, harassing or stalking you, private messages remain private. When in doubt, contact an Administrator, a Moderator, or @Wyntre and/or @fallofman. 6) Any flaming or similar posts anywhere on Death Addict is strictly forbidden. While we believe in free speech and know that arguments can happen, We do not believe in free speech that demeans others (directly or indirectly) by virtue of their: Race Color Ethnicity Religion Appearance Sexual Orientation Gender Identity Financial Status Social Status Political Beliefs Stance on Societal Issues Opinions Ideals This site is for adults and you will act like it...period. All of the above, and much more, may not always be to your liking, but you will not publicly degrade another member. Ideas and opinions are like assholes; the majority have them. They don't, however, give you the right to judge or belittle another one on our site. Think it...don't post it. Why did we come up with this rule? We simply decided that if you need to have the Internet or a community-based forum to use your anonymity to be a heartless, uncaring, constantly trolling prick, find joy in belittling others, and consider your forte or hobby to be winning "flame wars" on the Internet, then we have zero use for you on our web site. We can't stand bullies, online or off. No, this isn't a church and never will be, not even close. But we'll be damned if we're going to work our fingers to the bone, pay gobs of money to run this web site, and have fuckwits take away from it for others just so they can get their kicks at someone else's expense. Death Addict is for mature adults interested, intrigued or fascinated by the human condition; what the human body can be reduced to, what others can be driven to do to others, and for the news behind the news in uncensored form. It is most certainly NOT for those who just need to feel better by trying to create sometimes very real pain for others. The biggest complaint about shock/gore sites (and any site, really), is that the racism, gay-bashing and overall belittling of others is rampant. It won't be here. We despise those who use anonymity to treat others like shit. We have friends, offline and online, from all walks of life, various sexual preferences and opinions thereof. We also don't need to personally know you to believe you deserve respect. You give what you get. Remember that this site is here for the subject matter, first and foremost, not as a playground for the intellectually limited and verbally immature. Tread carefully. 7) Anything that shows publicly (i.e. usernames, avatars, signatures, etc) shall remain free of anything meant to incite, promote or convey racism, homophobia, etc. (See #2 & #6) If you're unsure that the username you came up with fits into one of these categories, message or email us. We don't bite unless specifically requested to. 8) Links, images, videos or animations containing bestiality are strictly forbidden. (We freely admit we'll watch damn near anything, but it's not legal to have here, so just don't.) Explained: Yes, we realize Mr. Hands is on Death Addict. The reason it is here is because the video happens to depict the actions that led to his death. If it was simply a guy taking it in the ass from a horse, it wouldn't be here...unless we did it simply for the "old school" days of shock and gore sites. The bottom line is that bestiality is illegal nearly everywhere, and while we'll watch Sally get molested by her little dog Spot, we can't play with the law with Death Addict's content. Feel free to send it to us off-site though. *snicker* 9) Spamming or phishing is strictly forbidden. Doing so will get you banned immediately and permanently. 10) Usernames created to mock or appear as another user are strictly off limits. 11) Posts and all parts thereof are to be written in the English language only. Usernames must be in English as well. No exceptions. 12) Signatures should follow these guidelines: Reasonable font size (4 or 5, maximum size) No advertising or referral/affiliate links No Ridiculously large images. Images should be no taller than roughly 3 to 4 lines of text. Nothing breaking any of the other rules here 13) Only one account per person. No exceptions. If there are numerous members of a single household wishing to be members of Death Addict’s forums (i.e. boyfriend/girlfriend, roommates), then staff needs to be made aware BEFORE a new account is made and that failure to do so may result in the new account(s) being banned. Each individual account needs to have its own email address. 14) For any forum, the act of simply copying and pasting a third party/source's text (without supply credit or a link to the source) is strongly discouraged. This is widely viewed as a breach of someone else's Intellectual Copyright/s. Technically, it's like plagiarism. This would include foreign languages that have been translated into English. Formulating a story in your own words, based on your sources, is strongly encouraged. Images don't apply unless someone who does hold the Copyright finds it posted somewhere and contacts their lawyer. 15) Anyone banned permanently will not be allowed to re-register with another account. Anyone banned temporarily, which will rarely be the case, will need to stay with the same account. Any attempts at creating new accounts, especially during a temporary ban, will result in a permanent ban. If you want to dispute your banned account status please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org for reconsideration. --------- Site Wide Banning Policy (Click Here) --------- DeathAddict.com and its forums are privately owned and operated.
