All users must follow instruction from forum moderators. Forum moderators reserve the right to move, delete or edit posts at the moderator’s discretion without notifying the posters. Removing posts is a manual process, however, so please realize that forum moderators may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately. This policy applies to member profile information as well.
