No New Posts Board Rules - please read

You've already ticked a box promising not to post racist, sexist, homophobic or inflammatory material. This is where we - kindly and nicely - remind you that this is a community of like-minded people and flame wars, personal insults, ad hominem attacks and all the usual detritus of internet communication are not welcome here.
If you infringe the rules, we'll bar you. So think before you post, think again and use your own delete button. If you're bumped and can't think why, it'll be because you didn't read the rules.

Play nice and you'll be fine.
NOTE: We are receiving a great many spam applications - please apply ONLY in your real name or your application will be rejected.
NOTE 2: In order to keep the delineations clear, we've created a board for posting notices of self-published e-books. Please use it to your best advantage.
