    The AULRO Swear Filter

    The system can and will automatically alter input deemed by us to breach the Internet "G" classification by replacing any that are in the systems bad word list with an * or series of ***

    If you feel the need to use an expletive feel free to just type it in as you normally would and the system will try to cope with the nuances.

    We have had so many people abuse the general use of * etc etc to hide swear words by using $ instead of S etc etc that still convey the full meaning of the words, thus negating the attempt to disguise the words, that the moderators and myself came to the conclusion that the only way forward was the bad word filter and a one warning system.

    Should you attempt to dodge the swear filter in some way by using other letters etc then you will as a general rule get a warning from the moderators to not do that in future. Persistent swear filter dodging will incur the much maligned AULRO.com naughty person points discussed elsewhere.

    thank you for your time and consideration...

    ADVERTISING on AULRO.com Website

    The system provides an area called Markets for people to advertise, for free, anything of interest to users.

    AULRO does not allow advertising in the forums as many other sites do.


    but

    Anyone, including commercial vendors, can advertise whatever they want to advertise, as long as it is legal in Australia, for nothing, in the markets.

    Main Index - AULRO Classifieds

    there is the obvious exception being the Club and Special interest Group areas which have their own way of doing things with in their own PRIVATE areas and not in visible public areas of the site.

    There are also a Banner Advertising scheme.

    And now a new VENDOR subscription level... information below.

    THESE ARE THE ONLY PLACES WHERE YOU CAN ADVERTISE ANYTHING COMMERCIAL.

    I will NOT TOLERATE abuse of the system by those wishing to take advantage of the user base, without them contributing to the upkeep of the system.

    NO COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING IS PERMITTED ANYWHERE OTHER THAN IN THE MARKETS, THE VERANDAH OR THE BANNER ADVERTISING SERVICE ON THE SYSTEM UNLESS YOU HAVE A CURRENT VENDOR SUBSCRIPTION.

    THAT MEANS :-

    NO COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING IS PERMITTED IN SIGNATURES UNLESS YOU HAVE A CURRENT VENDOR SUBSCRIPTION.

    NO COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING IS PERMITTED WITH IN MESSAGES in areas other than the MARKETS UNLESS YOU HAVE A CURRENT VENDOR SUBSCRIPTION AND ARE POSTING IN THE VERANDAH AREA.

    if you are in are in doubt, ask me or one of the moderators or admins for guidance. Step over the line, you will receive a warning, step over it again and you will have your access removed.

    If you wish to push your own barrow, do it in the markets or use the banner adverts is the moral of the story...

    if you have any questions feel free to ask...

    Vendor Subscription
    Cost = $100 per annum
    1000 PM's and can send to 5 people at once
    has 204800 KB of gallery space
    and can have an approved commercial signature and create threads in The Verandah forum area.

    ADVERTISING on The Australian Land Rover Owners Website

    Header Banners appearing at the top of many (but not all) forum pages are available.

    There are two styles of service available.

    Standard
    The system tries to display your banner 1000 times per day. Adverts have an equal priority through the whole 24 hour cycle.

    Pricing
    Standard AULRO Banners are $20.00 per week with a minimum display period of 13 weeks.

    You are supplied with a tax invoice.

    Banner adverts are 468 pixels WIDE X 60 pixels HIGH

    If you wish to proceed you will need to supply me with

    1) A banner graphic.
    2) The web page address you wish to click through to go to.
    3) Email address for statistics delivery.
    4) Keywords for your business.
    5) Description of your business.

    We can and will cope with minor spelling errors and mis-types, as everyone does it. We would generally prefer that people try as much as they can to use adequate and appropriate punctuation, and that capital letters are used at the start of sentences and for proper nouns for clarity and etiquette.

    There are some of us crusty old farts that are definitely two fingered typists, that seem to take more pride in their online presentation, despite being far slower as typists that the young'uns who can blaze off 60-80 words per minute.

    Please just try to be clearly legible to everyone."

    Swearing and general behaviour ... a timely reminder

    Swearing and general behaviour ... a timely reminder
    As you all should be aware this place runs in "G" (General Viewing) Internet rating space and that is somewhat different to TV rating space btw.

    It does so because i want my children and my children's children to be able to read the place without being subjected to more swearing, more hate speak, more porn and more generally bad behaviour.

    It appears some people can not cope with these basic tenets and can not behave as they should with out being reminded that the rules apply to them as well as everybody else, myself, and the moderators who give their time to help run the place, included.

    The same rules have been in place here for years, and will not be changing as long as i own the place.

    If you feel it is too harsh a regime, please do not bother to impose your good self on the rest of us that are happy to continue to use the place with in the current guidelines.

    to those that can not accept that they will occasionally be reminded that the rules Do apply to them, and for what ever reason, feel those rules should not apply to them, i have some bad news for you, they do, they will continue to do so and you will continue to be reminded they do till you wear out your welcome and your naughty person points level excludes you from the place.

    Having a shot at a moderator that dares tell you that you are operating outside of these rules and guidelines will do little to enhance your experience here.

    Being the caring soul that i am, and if you feel the need to argue, discuss or even abuse someone over the situation, please direct your anguish and pain at me, not one of the persons who volunteers their time to help run the place.....

    whilst i try to have the place run in a spirit of peace and co operation, and am always looking for ways to help or modify the place to enhance the level of support it offers land rover owners, i am never going to tolerate, to any degree, moderators being abused.

    if you do so, your access will be immediately and permanently removed.

    The AULRO Swear Filter

    The system can and will automatically censor your bad words by replacing any that are in the systems bad word list with asterix

    If you feel the need to use an expletive feel free to just type it in as you normally would and the system will try to cope with the nuances.

    We have had so many people abuse the general use of asterix etc etc to hide swear words by using $ instead of S etc etc that still convey the full meaning of the words, thus negating the attempt to disguise the words, that the moderators and myself came to the conclusion that the only way forward was the bad word filter and a one warning system.

    What is an internet troll?

    FYI

    What is an internet ?troll??

    Internet trolls aren?t loveable creatures with crazy bright coloured hair but rather are individuals who engage in online behaviour that is provocative and offensive, with the ultimate goal of garnering some sort of online attention. Arguably, the most common example of trolling behaviour is posting offensive comments in response to a post or article. However, the explosion of the popularity of social networking sites has seen an increase in trolling behaviour ? leading to the imprisonment of the first Australian for being a ?troll?.
    AULRO.com considers a Troll is someone that appears determined to infuriate others and or someone that appears to constantly argue a point beyond reasonable debate without any substantiated facts to back up their claim..

    What are the laws that regulate ?trolls??

    The Criminal Code Part 10.6 regulates internet services and some of the areas that the Part encompasses are child abuse material, child pornography, as well as using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause an offence to the reasonable person as stated in Part 10.6, Division 474.17(1).

    There are laws at state level that also be used to prohibit offensive online behaviour, such as Queensland?s Criminal Code, as well as the Crimes Act in both New South Wales and Victoria.

    Are there any options to stop ?trolls? in Australia?

    Depending on what type of trolling behaviour was undertaken, there can be a few options available. If an individual believes that they have been defamed, seek legal advice. However, if the trolling behaviour has included content that would normally be refused classification, or classified as X 18+ or R 18+ a complaint can be made to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) who can investigate complaints relating to prohibited material.

    Privacy Policy

    Forum and Website Visitors


    Like most website operators, AULRO collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AULRO’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AULRO’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AULRO may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.


    AULRO also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. AULRO does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.


    Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information


    Certain visitors to AULRO’s websites choose to interact with AULRO in ways that require AULRO to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AULRO gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a forum at AULRO.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with AULRO are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, AULRO collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AULRO. AULRO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. AULRO does not keep a copy of any credit card information once a transaction is complete.


    Aggregated Statistics


    AULRO may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AULRO may monitor the most popular forums on the AULRO.com site. AULRO may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AULRO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.


    Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information


    AULRO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AULRO’s behalf or to provide services available at AULRO’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AULRO’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AULRO will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AULRO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when AULRO believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AULRO, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AULRO website and have supplied your email address, AULRO may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AULRO and our products. We primarily use our various product forums to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AULRO takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

AULRO visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using AULRO’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of AULRO’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.
