12. Hacking e-mail accounts, web space accounts, viruses and everything that has to do with private permissions manipulating is not allowed. User may get banned. NOTE:(We do however allow key loggers. The reason we do is because parents need these tools sometimes for personal reasons and most programs that monitor there children's actions have some sort of key logger embedded in it. However we only allow commercial key loggers as they don't have hidden root kits like a user could make and post. These programs are picked up by every anti virus for the most part so we deemed them as usable and OK to distribute among users.)
13. One user must own only one profile here at Astatalk. Owning more than one profile is strongly prohibited and user with more than one profile will be banned and he will not be anymore able to access these forums from any of his user names.

17. Members should not instruct other members on rules, including Astacut hide operator and double post. Also don't reply to spam Releases/Requests/Threads, if you do so - your post will be considered as spam itself. Be careful please.
18. Post-whore's are not tolerated and posts (comments) will be deleted with accounts. Definition: Post-whore is a user who regularly posts absolutely useless and senseless comments with the purpose to accumulate large numbers of posts in a short amount of time, either bragging rights or to take advantage of certain board features that reward high post counts. Use the "+" button and/or intelligent phrase to thank the author unless you have something that contributes to the topic.
19. Photos are not to be hot-linked from sites
• "Hotlinking" is direct linking to a web site's files (images, video, etc.).
• An example would be using an img tag to display a JPEG image you found on someone else's web page so it will appear on Astatalk.
• Instead, copy the url from it's properties and then upload it to Photoserver.ws
• The url upload feature was included specifically for this..
• You can then just copy/paste the new link into your post.
