Terms & Conditions

By accessing "reelviews.net" and acquiring an account to post comments, you agree to the following terms. If you do not agree to be bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use "reelviews.net". You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws of your country, the United States of America, or International Law. Doing so may lead to your account being rescinded, with notification of your Internet Service Provider if deemed necessary by us. You agree that "reelviews.net" has the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should we see fit. As a user you agree to any information you have entered to being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, "reelviews.net" shall not be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised. 

Conduct guidelines: 

1. Be civil. Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. "reelviews.net" has a zero-tolerance policy on personal attacks toward other commenters. A certain amount of criticism of James Berardinelli or other public personalities is allowed as long as it does not become a personal attack. Anyone engaging in personal attacks may be subject to account termination.

2. DON’T YELL, PLEASE! Typing in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS is considered YELLING. Capitalizing (or using bold or large fonts) occasionally for emphasis is fine, but your entire post should used mixed case and normal fonts. 

3. Use PG-13 language. Some limited profanity is allowed but comments with excessive profanity or vulgarity will be edited or deleted. Those repeatedly breaking this rule will be subject to account termination. 

4. Please speak English. Because we moderate the forums to keep inappropriate posts offline, we need all posts to be in a language that all of our moderators can read. Posts not written in English will be deleted (even if the post does not contain inappropriate content).

5. Plagiarism is not allowed. All quotes must be sourced. Claiming someone else's writing to be your own will result in account termination. 

6. SPOILERS: First, it's necessary to define a "spoiler." This is problematic since there's no consistent definition. For purposes of this site, consider it to be the revelation of any significant plot element. Be conservative when determining whether or not something is "significant." If you think something might be a spoiler, treat it as one. For how long after a movie is released should something be considered a spoiler? Again, there's no clear answer. My rule-of-thumb is that the statute of limitations expires one year after a film's theatrical release (in the United States) or six months after its home video release, whichever comes later. For major plot developments, add another six months to a year. Again, err on the side of caution. How to address SPOILERS in comments: Use the word "SPOILER" (in caps) and provide at least 5-10 lines of white space before mentioning the spoiler. 

7. No self-Promotion. While it's okay to include links to outside, all external links should be relevant to the thread in question and should not be for the sole purpose of re-directing traffic to another website. Threads/links that are deemed to be self-promotional will be edited or deleted.
