Member Rules of Conduct

LogoThe OCD Life community, including its forums, groups, comments and priavte messaging system, is for the lively exchange of ideas through constructive debate. In order to use these services, you agree to abide without question to our rules and guidelines, and agree to abide by any additional and/or future rules or amendments put in place. If you do not agree with any portion of these rules, your only option is to discontinue using the services of this community.

Community Moderation

Moderators are here to ensure that the rules are followed. When necessary, inappropriate posts are edited or deleted. Do not make a public challenge on a moderator decision. If you have a concern, please contact a moderator by PM.

Freedom of Speech

You understand that although Canada guarantees freedom of public speech for citizens, this website is not a Canadian province, and the behaviours and activities of members of this privately owned website are governed by these Rules of Conduct, as amended from time to time.

Account Termination

You understand and agree that we may terminate any account we deem to be in violation of this agreement or any other web site policy. Please be aware that we do not accept requests to delete accounts/posts.

Multiple Accounts

Each member may have one registered account at any time.

High Maintenance Clause

If we receive constant complaints about you, or you require excessive watching/warning/editing by staff, or if you always ride just to the edge of the line, you are considered to be a high maintenance member which means that if your behaviour continues, you may be banned for general non-compliance of community guidelines and rules.


You are not anonymous on this community. While your identity is kept private on the board, in a defamation dispute a court may order us to turn over your email and IP address which your internet provider would cross-reference to reveal your identity.

While you retain full ownership and accountability of your posts, you grant OCD Life a non-revocable full and perpetual license to use, display, store, copy, archive, move, edit, delete, quote, or otherwise adapt any post you make. In the event of a terminated account, OCD Life shall retain the above full and perpetual license on all posts associated with the terminated account.
