The A2OC operates a warning mechanism. A warning point is give when a member contravenes one of the forum rules. This includes:

  • Displaying insulting or abusive behaviour
  • Posting adverts outside of the Marketplace forums
  • Posting spam
  • Swearing or excessive 'Text' speak
  • Posting disparaging comments about an advertisement in the public forums

Members who accumulate 3 warning points will be subject to an automatic 7 day ban. Members who accumulate 4 warning points will be subject to a permanent ban.

Banned members attempting to rejoin under a different username or email address will be subject to the same restrictions.
