      • Thou shall not speak ill of other members in any potentially offensive way.
      • No racist, sexist, defamatory, obscene and hateful remarks will be tolerated.
      • Flaming, trolling and spamming should be avoided, as well as linking to any malicious content. Some of these are unavoidable, I for one find it difficult sometimes to avoid in doing so. However, at least we have some set of rules for the users to follow.
      • Thou shall use his DotaPod username(or some part of it) as a username in Chatango also. This will allow us moderators to track easier those who are not following the rules, hence giving us less stress on moderating not just the forums but also the chatting section.We cannot avoid guest accounts though
