If you see a user breaking these rules please use the report function to report them. If you're unable to do so, private message a staff member on the forum.
Note: Abusing the report function qualifies as spam and will be dealt with harshly.
There is no set in stone punishment protocol, punishment depends on severity of offense.
Negligence to read or understand the rules will not get you out of punishment.
