    1. Warning - This is where a public announcement is made that mentions your name and that you have broken a rule. I will determine whether you knew what you were doing was wrong or whether a warning is necessary to explain it do you. If I do not give a warning, I will skip ahead to the next step in the penalty list.
    2. Muting - This is where you are not able to post on the board or enter chat. You may still view the board.
    3. Temporary Ban - This is where you are not able to view the board for a certain period of time.
    4. Permanent Ban - You can never again view the board.

    The following rules list the most serious violations:

    1. No Discrimination, - You may not insult members based on their religion, race, sex, political beliefs, or whether they are gay or straight. This is worse than flaming, because it also hurts other members of the board who fall into the catagory you insult. AA is a place where everyone is equal, and discrimination will NOT be tolerated!
    2. No Bullying - Do not pick on other members. The worst kind of bullying is where new members are picked on. This hurts the member as well as the board.
    3. No Abuse of Profanity or Obscene Content - Such content does not belong on AF and may offend some users. Use profanity with taste lol!

    If you break one of these rules, the following penalties will apply (first time, second time, third time...):

    1. Warning - Depending on how serious a violation is, you may be issued a warning first
    2. Muting - Muting for 2 days
    3. Temporary ban -People who cause more problems after being muted for 2 days will
    be banned for 5 days, and 10 days for the next offense.
    4. Permanent ban - At this point, it is obvious that will never learn your lesson, thus, a permanent ban is necessary to be rid of the problems you cause.

    The following rules are also important:

    1. No Illegal Activity or discussing it - You are not allowed to break the law using AA. This can get AA into legal trouble.
    2. No Posting Personal Info - You may not post your last name, or your street address on AF. This is because this information then becomes accessible to anyone. If you need to give someone this information it would be best done in a Private Message.

    Then there is the GOLDEN RULE: Treat others as you would like to be treated!

    Use common sense and be respectful and don't cause drama!
