Rules and Conditions
The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content ("content"). Any content posted only expresses the views of the author.
You, the user, agree to not use the Service to post or link to any content which:
is defamatory, abusive, hateful or threatening,
is spam or spam-like,
contains personal information about any other person(s),
risks copyright infringement,
encourages unlawful activity,
or may expose the Service to any risk of criminal charges or other legal proceedings.
You should not submit any content that you consider to be private or confidential.
You accept and agree to adhere to our policies as set out below:
Policy on Child Pornography
Child pornography is despicable, it could cause our forum to be closed, and it could lead to criminal proceedings against those responsible.
'Child pornography' includes any photos, videos, digital manips, drawings etc. etc. that appear to portray abuse of under-18s, or any sort of sexual activity involving or witnessed by under-18s (whether or not under-18s have actually taken part in the production).
We do not allow any images of children or any mention of children on the site at all, under any circumstances.
Any such content will be deleted, anyone posting such content will be banned.
Policy on copyright.
Pirated copyrighted material could get our site closed, it must not be posted.
Small samples of material from pay-sites may be permitted, but their source and copyright status must be acknowledged.
We reserve the right to use and publish any content posted on CruxForums within that site as we see fit, so we may copy, move or modify that content at our sole discretion.
If you publish your content on the forum, you grant forum owners rights to this content.
Policy on language
Users from all countries and speakers of all languages are welcome, but the language of the Forums is English. Using only English will prevent our Forums from splintering into different language groups, and ensure that Moderators know what is going on.
So posts in languages other than English will be deleted.
Policy on political and other irrelevant posts
Arguments about politics and other irrelevant topics have no place on this site, they will just drive people away, so they will be deleted.
Discussion of politicians or other well-known people in the context of this site could be perceived as threatening and attract the kind of attention we do not want.
Policies on the portrayal of Crucifixion, other forms of Execution, Torture or ill-treatment, BDSM, and hard-core sadistic pornography.
Our Forums provide a safe place in which adults can enjoy their shared interest in the erotic aspects of Crucifixion etc. We welcome a wide range of photos, videos, imaginative artwork, reproductions of historical documents and artworks, and other visual images on these topics. We welcome discussion of these topics, historical inquiry into them, imaginative stories and poems, jokes and banter.
The wide range of material we welcome is illustrated in the Archive.
But there are certain limits, which must be observed:
First, it should go without saying that any people in photos or videos acting out Crucifixion or taking part in BDSM or similar activities must be freely consenting adults.
If Moderators have any doubts about this, the images will be deleted.
We do not allow images or videos which portray real life crux-play using nails, or any content that encourages or assists such activity, which is likely to cause serious, permanent injury or even death, and which could lead to criminal charges.
Likewise, we do not allow videos or images of real people engaged in forms of so-called BDSM which are stupid and dangerous, and could well lead to serious injury or death, or to criminal charges, nor do we allow posts that encourage or assist such activities.
The subject matter of our Forums entails portrayals of cruelty and violence, and the range of acceptable content is wide. However, we are not, and do not intend to become, an "open house" site for all kinds of hard-core sadistic pornography.
Examples of content that is not wanted and will not be allowed include:
Policy on the rights and duties of Staff Members/ Moderators.

Policy on banning users.

· flagrantly break any rule (e.g. by posting child pornography),
