Forum Rules

Soul of Adoption has rules/guidelines to keep the forums running smoothly.

    No personal attacks
    No posts that break the law, including hate speech of any kind
    No trolling, misleading or deliberately inflammatory behaviour
    No spamming

You can report any of the above to us using the report button.

We rely on members to let us know about any posts that break our Guidelines.

Please be courtesy when posting messages as adoption is a sensitive subject and moral support is appreciated.

The moderators often make difficult decisions based on context, tone and circumstance, please respect their decisions and treat them civilly. 

Freedom of speech is important, however, posts considered to contain personal attacks, to break the law and/or to be obscene, racist, sexist, disablist, ageist, homophobic or transphobic, once they are brought to attention will be deleted. This includes posts that we think are just seriously unpleasant (please note that any subsequent posts repeating the words in the deleted post may be deleted, too).

If a whole thread is deleted, please don't start a new one repeating and/or rehashing everything that's been deleted.

Swear words and offensive language will be deleted.

Posting links is allowed provided these are considered useful or interesting but spam will be deleted.  E-petitions can be posted if relevant - ask if you are unsure.

Fundraising for registered charities can be posted and these boards.

Threads aren't generally deleted unless there are real concerns for members safety.

If you suspect someone of being a troll, please don't accuse them publicly on the discussion thread and just report your suspicions.

Instead, report your suspicions to us and we'll check them out.

We urge all members to point anyone disclosing abuse to the appropriate authorities and/or seek professional support and advice in real life.
