DO NOT use any type of automated tools on this site. That would include any BOT or program designed to steal or leech pictures, videos, or text from this site. The only exception would be an automated crawler designed to rank this site in a search engine. The site has measures to detect and ban this type of activity.
DO NOT make sexual and/or suggestive comments and remarks about children under the age of 18, dead or alive. Keep any such thoughts to yourself, as we are not a site that tolerates pedophilia. Any such comments seen in the future will result in a permanent ban from the site.

Having more than one account here on the forums is NOT ALLOWED. Those caught having more then one account will have both accounts deleted and your ability to register on this forum removed.
Abuse of my mods will not be tolerated. Any disrespect or abuse geared towards a mod of this forum will result in a permanent ban on your first offense. If you have an issue with a mod, PM them, or PM me, as public shit talking against a mod is not tolerated. We may need to contact you by private message in reference to something, if you fail to answer it could also result in a ban.
Sharing your account with others, or passing it along; in what is typically referred to as as sharing a "slut account" will result in an immediate ban, strikes system will not apply.
Giving access to a previously banned user will result in your account being banned immediately. This is easily tracked by mods, and there will be no warnings, your account will just be banned on the first offense.
Trolling outside the Water Cooler is not allowed. You can not stalk, harass, start arguments, or otherwise disrupt normal on-topic discussion outside the Water Cooler. This includes constantly one staring posts on a consistent basis. This also includes all talk of politics or hot button social issues inside threads that reside outside of the water cooler.
Please do not include names of victims in any posts that are in the death sections, or in the medical sections. Using initials are fine, as well as mentioning the location or city, but please do not include first and last names. The only exception to this would be for threads that fit into the Celebrity Death Pictures & Famous Events forum.
This should go without saying, and we have never had an issue with this, but it's worth noting. Threats of violence towards other members, the public, or any person or group of people is strictly prohibited, will result in immediate ban, and I will personally contact law enforcement if I feel it's warranted.
ALSO WORTH MENTIONING
Please upload all images and video to the site through the attachment form. Linking to content from other sites is discouraged due to the fact that on other sites content seems to disappear and that would leave us with a lot of threads with no pictures or video in them.
If you insist on sending me hate mail or other stupid shit, expect me to post it on the forum and across the Internet for others to laugh at, you have no expectation of privacy when sending me death threats, hate mail, stupid questions, or anything else. If you're going to subject me to your idiocy, you can pretty much bet on me sharing it with others.
You will see usernames in different colors on the "online users" list. If the username is RED it means the user is a Moderator and if the username is BLUE or GREEN it means the user has donated to the site and has extra privileges.
The Moderators are on this site to bring content and enforce the rules, not babysit the members. As a result, a zero tolerance policy is imposed to trolling/flaming anywhere outside of the watercooler.
Documenting Reality will not be hosting any future content related to school shootings that happen inside the United States. Although I have no idea the motivations behind the people that commit these awful attacks, I don't want them thinking they will get their 15 minutes of fame here. Discussing these events in the news section and in the water cooler will be allowed.
