GUIDELINES

Mouthfuls is a non-profit-making discussion site devoted to food, drink and other lifestyle topics. It is a moderated site, and compliance with some simple Guidelines is required. Furthermore, Mouthfuls does not guarantee that it will entertain any kind of discussion about any subject; there are a plenty of chat rooms on the internet dealing with every subject under the sun; topics suitable for Mouthfuls are indicated by the forums which the members have created.

These are the revised Guidelines, and they govern the conduct of all members of Mouthfuls while using Mouthfuls. Members should familiarise themselves with the changes. Mouthfuls has tried to keep the Guidelines as simple as possible. Interpretation and application of the Guidelines will be at the discretion of the Administrators, with the approval of the core members. The Guidelines may only be amended by a vote of the core members. Further details of the site's governance are available on request from mouthfuls@mouthfulsfood.com.

4. Mouthfuls does not permit members to start threads about politics or religion or to raise politics or religion as topics for discussion (including making critical comments or jokes which in the judgment of the Administrators may provoke such discussion).
