HELLO FANS AND FRIENDS AND PEOPLE/BEINGS WHO DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU SIT.

LATELY, WE HERE AT THE 30 SECONDS TO MARS ONLINE E-FORUM BOARD OF MESSAGES ON THE INTERNETS HAVE BEEN RECEIVING AN EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF MESSAGES OR REPORTS THAT DO NOTHING BUT CONSUME SPACE IN OUR INBOXES. AS YOU MAY BE AWARE, "THE BOARDS" ARE EXTREMELY FRAGILE AND WILL SHATTER WITHOUT WARNING OR PREJUDICE SHOULD THEY BE OVER-TAXED.

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW TO OPERATE THIS FORUM/THE INTERNET IN GENERAL:

THE "!REPORT" BUTTON AND HOW IT DIFFERS FROM THE "ADD REPLY" AND "NEW TOPIC" BUTTONS
OCCASIONALLY YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF READING A TOPIC (OR THREAD, IF YOU WILL) AND A WAVE OF EXCITEMENT WILL COME OVER YOU. IF YOU'RE LIKE BIG BROTHER 1, CHANCES ARE YOU WILL INDISCRIMINATELY CLICK WHICH EVER BUTTON YOU FIRST SPOT IN ORDER TO EJACULATE WORDS OUT OF YOUR FINGERTIPS INTO THE WORLD WIDE WEB. THE "!REPORT" BUTTON IS NOT A BUTTON THAT YOU SHOULD BE CLICKING IN SUCH A SITUATION.

AGAIN, THE "!REPORT" BUTTON IS NOT A BUTTON THAT YOU SHOULD BE CLICKING, SHOULD YOU WANT TO REPLY WITH A POST IN A TOPIC.

THE FUNCTION OF THE "!REPORT" BUTTON IS TO NOTIFY US, THE MODERATORS, OF ABUSE WITHIN THE FORUM. IF YOU HAPPEN TO SPOT A THREAD THAT ISN'T IN ITS CORRECT SUB-FORUM, OR YOU NOTICE A THREAD THAT SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN CREATED AT ALL, OR SOMEBODY IS PICKING ON YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS OUT TO GET YOU AND YOU FEEL AS THOUGH NOBODY WILL UNDERSTAND YOU OR BE ABLE TO SAVE YOU EXCEPT FOR THE MODERATORS, PLEASE USE THE "!REPORT" BUTTON. OTHERWISE, DO NOT USE IT.

ALSO, NOT EVERY THREAD YOU COME ACROSS SHOULD BE REPORTED. IF SOMETHING OFFENDS YOU THAT DOESN'T OFFEND ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD, AND INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION IS BEING HAD IN SAID THREAD, PLEASE DO NOT REPORT IT TO US THINKING THAT WE WILL REMOVE IT.

I KNOW THIS SEEMS REDUNDANT, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE SAID.

IF YOU WANT TO ADD A REPLY TO A TOPIC, CLICK THE "ADD REPLY" BUTTON.

IF YOU WANT TO POST A NEW TOPIC (WHICH YOU SHOULDN'T REALLY WANT TO. NOBODY LIKES TOPIC POSTERS), CLICK THE (YOU GUESSED IT) "NEW TOPIC" BUTTON.

NOT
THE
!REPORT
BUTTON.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER,
BIG BROTHER 1
