1. Chat and SMS Lingo is not permitted on SMARTDrive333.com Therefore, “my” is not “mi”, “before” is not “b4” and “that” is not “dat”.

2. A decent communication protocol must be adhered to. Foul language and use of abusive words / photographs in posts / avatars / signatures are STRICTLY prohibited. Even indirect use of abusive language (e.g. B****) will attract the strictest moderator action.

3. Do make sure that you provide the relevant permission & references / original sources for every piece of material that has been reproduced from any other website / publication.

4. Strictly NO marketing on the forum for automotive goods / services. Also, no third parties are permitted to make any commercial offers to members, via the Private Messaging (PM) or email facility.

Also, the minimum character limit for posts is currently set at 20. Any attempts to bypass this limit will be counted as spam.

13. Sensitive discussions involving politics or religion are to be avoided, due to their highly subjective nature, which can lead to volatile and inconclusive debates. The only factor that unites SMARTDrivers is our love for cars, independent of religious or political inclinations.
