Happinesz.com Terms

This is the Bla Bla Bla stuff we have to inform you about but you will probably never read but you have to know.

General:

Keep it legal. We’ll delete posts defaming others, posting commercial porn, ticket scalping, plotting illegal activities, or posting other people’s private information, and ban the poster. Happineswz.com is a website about positivism so hatred and violence in any form is not what we want to see.

Keep it clean. Strong language has no place here. You won’t be able to use profanities and creative alternatives will be deleted.

Keep it relevant. Happinesz.com covers many topics, so place posts and comments to the relevant subjects. We can’t support off-topic discussions and will remove them.

Keep it respectful. Happinesz.com is a global community that embraces different cultures, faiths, attitudes and view points. Please be respectful of this and always be positive. You can learn from other cultures!!
