Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important Rules. In order to preserve a climate that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate participation in the Community for anyone who violates these Rules.
We’re so glad you’re here! We hope you will help create great conversations in our community.
Do politely ask us questions and let us know what you like and don’t like about a specific post or community issue.
Don’t be a jerk, call people jerks, or react to jerks. We will remove inappropriate stuff when we see it.
Respect the Glens CA volunteers and resident and help the website moderators. It’s a small team of dedicated, caring volunteers working hard to make things better.
Here are things that will get your comment or forum post removed and quite possibly get you banned. Note that this is not a comprehensive list. The forum moderators reserve the right to remove anything we deem inappropriate.
Spam: Zero tolerance, of course! If it comes from a human or a robot, spam will be deleted. This includes self-promotion. Generally speaking, promoting your projects here will be treated like any other spam.
Personal attacks: Don’t attack or insult another user. It’s not helpful and it doesn’t make The Glens CA a friendly place. This includes calling other residents trolls.
Doxxing: Don’t reveal someone else’s personal information.
Illegal activities: Posting links to illegal downloads, ways to steal service, and other nefarious activity is not OK here.
NSFW material: Not permitted. Even images or links that could be considered borderline are not acceptable. A good rule of thumb is that anything beyond PG-13 will get you in trouble, but we reserve the right to remove any post we deem offensive.
Racism, sexism, and other discrimination: Attacking entire classes of people is just like attacking a single person: we’ll ban you for it.
Trolling: ”Trolling” is a big, messy term, but we know what trolls are and we won’t tolerate it. If you’re abusing the good conversations here at The Glens CA, we will take your comments and posts down. This includes taking a thread off-topic, by the way.
Spreading misinformation: We are not a platform for spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation, and will remove posts promoting obvious falsehoods.
Multiple accounts and throwaway emails: We don’t allow multiple accounts per user. Using a disposable email address signals to us that you might not be here for the right reasons. You also may not create accounts designed to impersonate another person.
Cross posting: Don’t make duplicate posts across different forums — it clogs things up and fractures the conversation.
Posting Items for Sale or Selling Services: This is not Kijiji or eBay. Users are prohibited from posting commercial messages or promotions, advertising, or selling goods or services. Advertising a garage/yard sale in the Glens is acceptable.
Access to Forum: The website is intended for Glens residents only and only residents will a valid Glens address will be permitted access and to post/comment in the forum.
