The following are not allowed in VandyMania's forums.


1. Using the forum or inbox system to commit a crime or advocate committing a crime.

2. Name calling or vulgar language.

3. Personal attacks or hate speech.

4. Advertising without permission of the site publisher. The posting of links to premium content which is related to the topic of a particular forum is allowed under these conditions:
  • a) The topic or reply subject field must contain the word "PREMIUM" in all caps.
  • b) The poster must include a very short paraphrase (no more than 20 words) of what news of interest the article contains.
5. Pornographic links, photos or anything that could promote pornography.

6. Vulgar sexual references.

7. Spamming.

8. Trolling or Flamebait (Intentional posting of inflammatory rhetoric or images). Posting just to call others out.

9. Violations of copyright laws.

10. No political, racial or religious discussions are allowed.

11. Referring to or questioning anyone's sexual orientation.

12. Using the forum or inbox system to reveal an individuals' contact information or real name if they use an alias.

13. Campaigning for the removal of coaches or Vanderbilt employees is not allowed-- please direct your concerns to proper channels.

14. Fans of other teams, you're more than welcome to post here; but if you taunt, you won't last.

15. Posing. That is appearing to be a Vanderbilt fan but posting in a manner in order to bring discredit to the school or its athletic teams.

16. Please don't lash out at posters who violate forum rules. Instead, report the post by clicking the exclamation point when viewing the post. (see image below)

NOTE: Any material deemed inappropriate will be deleted and the user may be banned at the sole discretion of the administrator, moderator or site publisher.

Define hate speech.

If I say I now hate VU football and basketball is that hate speech?

Hate speech is defined by Cambridge Dictionary as "public speech that expresses hate or encourages violence towards a person or group based on something such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation".
