Demonland suggests that its members: Make use of the search function to avoid repeat topics Argue the points of discussion, not the people involved in the discussion Avoid meaningless one word topics or posts Avoid racial, political or religious abuse in discussions. This forum is about the Melbourne Football Club, not about the parties, race or religious affiliation of players, staff and/or fans. Code Of ConductThe Demonland Code of Conduct covers all matters relating to the posting of messages on DEMONLAND Forums. The Code of Conduct is not designed to be a negative "don't do this, don't do that" statement, but rather a guide for which all members of Demonland abide by, in the interests of the well being of the Forum. Demonland encourages its members to put forth their opinion, but in doing so asks all members to be considerate of other people's opinions. Football brings about high emotions, and members will have differing opinions over a variety of issues. In order to allow all people to have their say and debate to take place in a sensible manner, Demonland asks all its members to keep a cool head and remember that above all we all support the same team, and all want to see that team succeed.
