The Sapient Sanctuary

Hosted by Repi

The Sapient Sanctuary is a forum dedicated to quality flame-free civil discussion since 2001. Quality over quantity is paramount! We believe civil debate can bring forth a new era of understanding and camaraderie and ultimately, a peaceful society. Topics range from politics, social issues, to sex, family, religion and local stuff. We can also be silly sometimes! Diverse opinions of all political persuasions are always welcome.

Delphi Forums Terms of Service

I. Your Registration and User Account
The registration information that you provide to Delphi Forums is considered private and personal between you and Delphi Forums, and is governed by the Delphi Forums Privacy Policy. All user accounts are governed by and subject to the following rules:

  • Use of your account is expressly limited to you. Your account may not be transferred or shared with any other party, temporarily or permanently.

  • You agree to bear sole responsibility for all use of your account and for the confidentiality of your password. To protect your privacy, Delphi Forums will suspend access or change access to your account immediately upon notification by you that your password has been lost, stolen or otherwise compromised.

  • To cancel your Account, go to http://myforums.com and select "My Account Info" from the "My Info" menu in the left-hand portion of the screen. Near the bottom of the page, you will find the "Account Status" control, which will allow you to permanently disable your account.

II. Rules of Online Behavior
Delphi Forums does not screen or edit messages posted in message boards, comments made in chat rooms, or any other user-created content. However, Delphi Forums reserves the right to monitor said content and to remove any objectionable material at any time, in our sole discretion. By participating in message boards, chat rooms, or any other services provided by Delphi Forums, you acknowledge that you may encounter material that you find offensive. Delphi Forums disclaims any responsibility for said material.

  • By participating in any service of Delphi Forums, you agree not to

    1. attach files to messages that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may adversely affect the operation of another's computer

    2. participate in such a way as to undermine the operation of a forum, chat room or other service

    3. use a message board, chat room, or other service to harass others

    4. use Delphi Forums to disseminate any inappropriate, defamatory, libelous, threatening, infringing, obscene, or unlawful material or information.

  • Delphi Forums disclaims all liability for messages appearing on message boards, comments made in chat rooms, Web pages hosted by Delphi Forums, and other materials created by Delphi Forums users. Delphi Forums has no responsibility for such content and is merely providing access to such content as a service to you.

  • Use of distribution lists in electronic mail or other mass electronic mailings is subject to the approval of Delphi Forums. Any unauthorized use of distribution lists is strictly prohibited, and may be discontinued at the sole discretion of Delphi Forums.

  • By participating in Delphi Forums, you agree not to impersonate any person or entity or falsely represent your affiliation with any person or entity.

  • Message boards, Web pages, and other services provided by Delphi Forums may not be used for unauthorized electronic commerce. Use of any Delphi Forums service, including but not limited to message boards and Web pages, for the sale of products or services (including participation in any affiliate program other than that operated by Delphi Forums) is prohibited. If, in the sole discretion of Delphi Forums, you are found to be using Delphi Forums for any inappropriate commercial purpose, Delphi Forums reserves the right to take action to end said activity.

  • Delphi Forums may terminate your account if it believes, in its sole discretion, that you have violated any of the terms of this agreement.

III. Rules for Hosting a Forum
Online communities created on Delphi Forums are designed to accommodate a diversity of interests and opinions. However, Hosts must operate their Forums in an appropriate manner.

  • If, in the sole discretion of Delphi Forums, a Forum is being used to post or transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including, but not limited to, any material which encourages conduct that would harm Delphi Forums' business interests, constitute a criminal offense, exploit children, violate rights of others, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national, or international law, Delphi Forums reserves the right to shut down said Forum, which in its sole judgment, violates these guidelines.

  • While the Host may restrict access to their Forums, some access by Delphi Forums staff may be necessary to maintain systems and programs and ensure compliance with usage guidelines. While staff will not access Forum message bases except for these purposes, no absolute guarantee of privacy is made for this reason.

IV. Representations, Warranties and Acknowledgement
Delphi Forums does not endorse, and specifically disclaims any responsibility or liability for, any content on any message board, in any chat room, on any Web page, or on any other content on Delphi Forums. Delphi Forums makes no representations about the reliability of services by Delphi Forums, and disclaims all liability in the event of any service failure. You acknowledge that any reliance on said material and/or systems will be at your own risk. Delphi Forums makes no representations regarding the amount of time that forums, chat rooms, message board discussions, uploaded files, or any other content will be preserved by Delphi Forums.

  • By posting on message boards, participating in chat rooms, or creating any other content, you will be deemed to have granted Delphi Forums perpetual, non-exclusive permission to redistribute by transmission the information or materials worldwide without charge or liability.

  • You participate in and/or operate message boards, chat rooms, and/or other Delphi Forums features at your own risk. If you are unhappy with the contents and/or operation of a message board and/or chat room, your only recourse is to contact the host or Web site that operates said service(s). If you are dissatisfied with any feature, operability, contents, this agreement, other agreements Delphi Forums imposes as a condition of usage, or any other component of the Delphi Forums Web site, your sole remedy is to discontinue use Delphi Forums services.

Delphi Forums makes no warranties or representations whatsoever with regard to any goods or services provided by the seller of the merchandise or services and shall not be liable for the costs or damages arising, either directly or indirectly, from the products or services or from the actions or inactions of the Seller.
