No topics and/or statements which could be used to reflect poorly on archery and/or bowhunting.
Since the Bowsite is visited frequently by anti-hunting organizations and non-hunting individuals, we feel it is necessary to remove those topics or statements which could be used against us, or tarnish our image. While the contributors original intent (e.g. an example of "what not to do") may be good-intentioned, if it can assist in presenting poor image to the media for our sport it will be removed.
This includes both commercial,
nonprofit, and classified ads. We have programs available
for organizations, commercial businesses, and an extensive
auction/classified ad section. Sponsors of the Bowsite and
our related sites are granted permission to advertise their
goods and services on our conferences.
Topics must be related to the forum. No off-topic posting allowed.
This means that while in the whitetail forum, only topics directly related to bowhunting whitetail deer will be allowed. For example, a question on tuning your bow posted in the bear forum is not allowed. See the forum guidelines below.
Contributors who are argumentative, intolerant, confrontational, and lack respect for others will be removed. While debate is often healthy, habitual debaters and people who seek confrontation will be removed and potentially blocked from making future contributions. This is necessary to ensure a positive experience for the great majority of our visitors.

The reason for this is that too many people miss a quote mark or a bracket or something else and it ruins the entire thread and could possible hang the server. It also could be used to link to unsavory type stuff so it is prohibited.|
