5) Do not post telephone numbers, YM/MSN/SKYPE or other instant messengers’ details, email addresses, etc. Posts with this kind of information will be considered as spam and may subject the poster to suspension from Christian Filipina.

6) Do not post advertisements.

7) Do not link to your own websites or include any “footer” linking or pointing to your own websites or other websites.

All forums are listed by specific subjects. We have created different discussion rooms to cover the most popular topics and allow you to find a suitable topic where you can develop your threads. So, just make sure you place your thread in the correct forum to get the most replies and to encourage relevant discussions.

To navigate the threads please use the search option in the right upper corner of the page. This way you will easily find out whether a thread topic already exists.

If you want to start a new thread please give your thread a subject title related to its topic. Try to be unique and start a thread which has not been discussed already.

If you continually post in the wrong forums, your threads may be deleted or moved. Your posting privileges may be removed or diminished, temporarily or permanently, depending on severity.

We do not keep records of deleted topics/posts.

I'm not sure if I completely understand what is it to, " ..continually post in the wrong forums.." I've read forum posts on other sites and those things seem to take on a life of their own and can turn into some ugly monsters among those doing the posting, so I understand about keeping things civil. But, posting in the wrong forums? So if the topic is about airplanes and I post about vans, and the next time the topic is about vans and I post about airplanes...the end result is removal?

Hi Robert,

We will try to allow the discussions to remain unmoderated as much as possible.  We do prefer that a reply should be at least somewhat on topic, but if there are some conversations that go naturally on a tangent from time to time don't worry we don't need to police every last post.  The guidelines are more about flagrant, repeated violations.

Does that sound good to you?


Peter I think you have done a sterling job so far as administrator, I know I have pushed the boundaries a little myself but you have done very well in allowing discussion to take its course without allowing it to get too far out of hand. I have noticed a few blatant postings of contact information though but I see that you are now picking those up. Well done as an ex-moderator I don't know if I would have allowed my arguments with Cyrus as much leeway as you have but I did appreciate you not stepping in until the name-calling started. Over all congratulations on a great job.

Thanks Tim.

If you or anyone does see postings that violate our guidelines, including posting contact information or links, please do click "inappropriate" so that our staff can review them.  It really does help us if you report the problems.

We do try our best to see the good side of what each person is bringing to the forum and of each post.

We hope to keep everything open, with everyone including free level members of CF able to post and have their posts appear right away.  If we end up with too much abuse or fights, we might have to have moderated "pending" posts.  Hopefully our community will help us so that doesn't have to happen.

Hi Peter,
