Recently, some members have sought to take advantage of the facility to quote from another member's post, by taking quotations out of context, amending or adding to them or even fabricating the quotation so that it bears no similarity whatsoever to what the author originally wrote. The purpose of this would seem to be, to make the original poster look stupid or to annoy or embarrass them infront of others. People should be entitled to be quoted fairly and correctly and not have words placed in their mouth by others.
Therefore, the following new rule relating to the use of quotations from other posts is being introduced today and applies to all forums in the Escort Community Section of E-I:
Quoting Other Posts
Where posts include a quotation from another post, the post being referenced may be quoted in whole or in part(s). Quotations must be an accurate reference to the original author's post. Editing posts, such that they are amended, added to or changed in any way shall constitute a breach of posting rules. Equally, taking different words or segments of text out of a post and combining them to misquote somebody or alter the context of the quotation shall also constitute a breach of the posting rules. Offenders will receive infractions if this occurs and persistent offenders may have their user name banned. The only exception to this posting rule, is in the case of Community Moderators amending posts and/or quotations which infringe against other posting rules.
