We reserve the right to delete ANY POSTING.

THIS GROUP WAS CREATED TO HAVE THE LEAST AMOUNT OF RULES POSSIBLE; HOWEVER, AFTER A TIME WE REALIZED THAT WE CAN'T PROTECT PEOPLE WITHOUT A FEW RULES.

RULE
1. Post Deletions
Do we delete posts? Almost never.
This is the policy for post removals.
1. Admins receive 3 or more complaints from separate individuals from group about a post.
2. Admin will contact owner of post to work out a compromise
3. If no compromised is worked out, post MAY be deleted and the user MAY be removed
Any admin can remove a post; however, we have a board of five admins who must agree before the user can be removed

*SPAM OR HATE SPEECH WILL BE DELETED AND THE POSTER REMOVED FROM GROUP WITHOUT NOTICE

SUGGESTION
2. Contacting Each Other
Please don't post your phone number and address. If possible use private messages. This isn't a requirement, just a suggestion for your family's security.

PRETTY PLEASE
3. Sold
Please delete your post when sold. This helps group members know that an item is no longer available.

PRETTY PLEASE
4. Tell you friends
Help our group grow by sharing our group with your friends!

RULE
5. No advertisements for sex.
We REALLY can't believe that we have to put this in writing; however, you can't advertise sex on this group.

RULE
6. No hate speech.
Group members will be deleted immediately with no warnings for hate speech.

THIS IS NOW A RULE!

More than ONE post daily will be considered spamming the group, this includes "bumping" multiple posts or "commenting for the purpose of bumping the post". Multiple pictures added to one folder is considered one posting.
