    You may not use the Explosive Barrels Forums for spamming, advertising and posting unsolicited messages. This also includes posting multiple, meaningless messages with no or nonsensical topic.
  2. Illegal content.
    Calls to illegal actions are forbidden. We have a zero tolerance policy against child and other non-consensual sexual acts and such pornography, drugs, terrorism, as well as threats to injure or murder someone. Should such violations occur and such content be posted on the Explosive Barrels website, we will report it to respective authorities.

    Intentional distribution of such software is illegal and will be treated as such.
