Messageboard Ettiquette


To help make the board more enjoyable for Fountains of Wayne fans, the following guidelines should be followed:

  • Do not register more than one username. Please contact an administrator or moderator if you have a special concern on this matter.

  • Do not submit posts or private messages (u2u's) containing excessively abusive, obscene, slanderous or threatening language.

  • Do not repeatedly send unwanted private messages (u2u's) to board members.

  • Do not directly link to, or post inappropriate content.

  • Do not spam.

  • Do not continue a line of behavior if told to stop doing so by an admin or a mod.

All violations are dealt with on a case-by-case basis, but in general, you may expect:

First Offence: Warning
Second Offence: Banning for the period of seven days.
Further Offences: Subsequent breaches will incur a minimum suspension of seven days, with the administrator reserving the right to permanently ban the member concerned.

The administrator is the sole arbiter of whether a post is considered to have breached messageboard etiquette. If a member has a personal issue with either the operation of the FountainsofWayne.us website, or a post or posts on the messageboard, they should contact the administrator directly rather than posting their grievance on the messageboard.

Can you post them so we can mock them (not on a specific thread) when they return?

  • This one caught my eye. Now, are we talking about swearing in general (i.e. "Bush's speech pissed me right the fuck off") or when it's directed at someone ("Shut up, cuntrag")

    Now, when it's meant as abuse, I agree. If you mean in general (meaning, this board is PG rated), I would have to disagree.




    In 2000, George W. Bush, the Connecticut-born, Yale-educated, son of a former President, ran as an outsider. Historians are still trying to figure out how the fuck he pulled that off.

    I encourage swearing in all its wonderous forms. The real intent of this rule is to curb flaming threads and other such drama when it gets out of hand, so we have a rule to point to when we want to say, "This is why you were banned."

    Then that I understand. On the board I moderate, it can be a bit of a problem, but it comes in cycles.

    sorry i just had to put this random thought down.

    im guessing that the report button next to a comment is so that if offends anyone people can make the board moderator guy aware of it. so, since this goes to board dude, noone can report him since it would be reporting him to himself. therefore he is able to say what he likes no matter how crazy it is. am i rite?

    Yes, it sends me a u2u message...it's only ever happened once. If you wish to report me, I suggest you contact my wife, "tootsie", she's the only one here more powerful than me.

    I don't really think that is necessary, you will find that we keep an eye on the mb pretty well. :)

    hey, it says on the board that I am responsible for the last post in a Shane Haboucha thread. I would never do such a thing, I demand my good name be restored and this hoorible miscarriage of justice be rectified.

    No, really..........
