3. Absolutely no threats or calls for retaliation are allowed.
4. Absolutely no posting of personal information that could be used to harass another person.5. These rules cover this thread and any other threads describing trading problems.
The moderators with actively moderate this thread and others describing problems. Inappropriate posts will be deleted immediately. Repeated violations of the rules will earn reprimands.
We will also maintain, in this first posting, a list of problem users with summaries of the problem and resolutions, if any.
We encourage people to try to resolve problems in private before discussing them here. Before posting a new problem report, please send a private message to one of the mods describing the problem and what you have done so far to try to address it.Problem summaries:dear earthling
