Message Center Policies

Browse access to the forums is a free benefit of Boytoy membership. Post access is a privilege granted to like-minded Boytoy members supportive of escorts and escorting. Boytoy membership is a necessary but not sufficient condition for Message Center post privileges. Post access is contingent upon sharing the Message Center Mission and observing the Covenant and the Code of Conduct. Publicly demonstrated member conduct, prior to joining Boytoy that establishes a history of egregious conduct or chronically problematic behavior may be considered in the determination of granting Message Center post access.

Failure to observe the Covenant or the Code of Conduct shall constitute cause for termination of Message Center post privileges. Egregious member conduct in external forums may give cause for Boytoy Message Center post-access privileges to be reviewed and revoked at Boytoy Management discretion. Forum shopping to violate Boytoy member privacy will not be tolerated. Termination of post privileges shall in no way affect the status of Boytoy Site Membership which shall remain in good standing with all other benefits intact.

The determination of violations is the sole purview of the Boytoy Management. Message Center post privileges may be terminated without prior notice at the discretion of the Management.

The Boytoy Management takes very seriously the privacy of its members and recognizes the desire and in many cases the need for discretion. Personal information that can be used to identify a member or non-member, shall not be permitted. No member shall publish or cause to be published such personal information. A violation of the Covenant shall be cause for immediate termination of Forum privileges.

Personal Information is any information that identifies a person or his residence or place of employment and includes but is not necessarily limited to:

first and last name
- residential or business address
- phone number
- Social Security number
- credit card number
- e-mail address
- Photos of subject or subject's family/friends/pets/place of residence or employment/study, automobile*, or auto license plate.
- IP address

A member may choose to disclose his first name in 'signing' his posts. Under that circumstance, usage of a first name to address or refer to that member shall not be deemed a violation of the Covenant. Without public announcement by the individual, such first name usage shall be considered a violation of the Covenant and Code of Conduct.

In all instances, Boytoy management shall be the final arbiter of what constitutes personal information.

Code of Conduct
Boytoy membership is restricted to Adults Only. That Message Center members shall be expected to behave as adults is not an undue burden. The expected conduct standard for the Boytoy forums is the same as that observed every day in society by adults in our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. It is based on straightforward mature behavior, civility and courtesy that you find in a neighborhood Pub or Tavern where neighbors and acquaintances joined by occasional strangers come together to socialize in good temper, to share conversation, and to hoist, in moderation, a glass of favorite beer or wine or a cup of coffee or tea.

These forums are NOT presented for abusive arguing and name calling, score settling, thread stalking, or general cyberspace blood sport for the chronically bored.

If you participate in our forums, we maintain posts after you leave the site. Should you wish to leave the site one day your forum posts will remain on the site in perpetuity.

As in any Pub or Tavern, an egregiously abusive or chronically problematic member shall be banned from further post participation.

Like any community, we have standards. We do not allow anyone to FLAME or otherwise abuse any of our members. Hold your tongue unless you are on your knees!

Being mean or lecturing any members of the community is not allowed.

In all instances, management shall be the final arbiter of what constitutes egregiously abusive conduct or when a member has crossed the line of 'chronically problematic'.

In general, terminated memberships shall not be eligible for reinstatement.
