By accessing this Web site and the Discussion Forums contained herein, you agree to the Terms of Use. AudiWorld may change the Terms of Use any time. Please READ THIS PAGE CAREFULLY before using our website.

Warranties and Disclaimers

Considering the real-time nature of the Discussion Forums, it is impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that AudiWorld does not actively monitor the contents of and are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message.

The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of AudiWorld. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately by email. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Deleting Messages

Although AudiWorld does not and cannot review each and every message that is posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we reserve the right to delete any message for any reason whatsoever.

Messages are typically deleted as a result of the following:

  • Profanity in subject lines or signatures, or profanity within messages deemed to be blatant as opposed to incidental
  • Spamming or commercial solicitation
  • Flaming other members with the apparent intent of inciting or perpetuating a conflict or argument
  • Bombing forums or individual threads with repetitive, pointless posts
  • Posting personal e-mail or chat dialogues
  • Posting pornographic or otherwise objectionable material
  • Impersonating other individuals or false representation
  • Discussion of illegal activity, or posting links to other websites that deal with such activities
  • Discussion of ad blocking software. AudiWorld relies on ads to keep the site free
  • Posts made under secondary usernames or other aliases
  • Posts which are completely unrelated to the forum in which they are posted
  • Excessive cross-posting (this is considered spam)
  • Posts which breach another member's privacy, i.e. containing phone numbers, addresses or other personal information
  • Copyright violations
