Rules And Terms of Use

Registration to this forum is free! By registering and continuing usage of the Hulsey Master Plan forums, you agree to abide by the rules and policies detailed below, and read, understand and agree to the FAQ and Posting Guidelines.

These Rules and Terms of Use are unabashedly inspired by those so effectively in use at Hulsey Master Plan and a couple of other forums.

The Basics

Although the administrators and moderators of Hulsey Master Plan will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of Hulsey Master Plan will not be held responsible for the content of any message.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

Hulsey Master Plan reserves the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason.

Posting Etiquette

  1. Be polite. We encourage debating in the forums, but please avoid defamatory statements, personal attacks, racial slurs, name-calling, and cursing at others in the forums.
  2. Hulsey Master Plan’s forums are generally geared for home decor enthusiasts, but the several categories of forums within Hulsey Master Plan generally allow for discussion of general home decor topics. We ask that you please make a concerted effort to post in the appropriate forums.
  3. Considering that our member base is made up of people from a wide range of ages, from pre-adults to senior citizens — and also a great variety of cultures, beliefs and social standards — swearing on the forums is not allowed. Our general standard is this: if it would not be allowed on U.S. network primetime television, it will most likely not be allowed on Hulsey Master Plan’s forums. If you need further clarification, feel free to contact a moderator.
  4. Do not post copyrighted or trademarked material without first obtaining the express permission to do so by the copyright or trademark holder or a legally authorized agent of the copyright or trademark holder. In short, this means no posting verbatim copies of copyrighted articles or logos without first obtaining the proper permission to do so.
  5. If what you want to post includes words/phrases like “placebo,” “expectation bias,” “ABX,” “blind testing,” etc., please post it in the Sound Science forum.
  6. We do not allow the discussion of politics or religion in any of our forums.
  7. Do not cross-post. (Cross-posting is posting the same post to more than one thread, or the same thread to more than one forum.)
  8. Use only one username. Multiple profiles for the same individual are not allowed. Use of multiple profiles may result in an immediate ban.


  1. PLEASE: We ask you to please NOT display your email address in your profile signature. We ask this, so as to limit the attraction to email spamming robot collectors (spamming bots).
  2. Hulsey Master Plan makes no claim of authorship or copyright ownership with respect to any post.
  3. Hulsey Master Plan shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Hulsey Master Plan Web Site and Hulsey Master Plan Forums including, but not limited to, user participatory areas, content, hours of availability, and equipment needed for access or use. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including but not limited to, posting in the Hulsey Master Plan user participatory areas a revised version of these Rules and Terms of Use or notification by electronic mail. Any use by you of the Hulsey Master Plan Web Site, Hulsey Master Plan Forums, and/or any other Hulsey Master Plan user participatory areas after such notice shall conclusively be deemed to be acceptance by you of such changes, modifications, additions or deletions. You agree to review the terms and conditions of this Hulsey Master Plan Posting Rules and Terms of Use periodically to be aware of such revisions.
  4. The Hulsey Master Plan Web Site, Hulsey Master Plan Forums and any other Hulsey Master Plan user participatory areas shall be used for lawful purposes only. No material shall be posted on or transmitted through the Hulsey Master Plan Web Site, Hulsey Master Plan Forums and any other Hulsey Master Plan user participatory areas, which violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others, which is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane, indecent or otherwise objectionable, which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, gives rise to civil liability or otherwise violates any law.
  5. Hulsey Master Plan reserves the right, in its sole discretion, in the future, to add, remove, change, or modify all or part of these Posting Rules and Terms of Use at any time; so, if you wish to continue using and/or visiting, please review the Hulsey Master Plan Rules and Terms of Use frequently to keep abreast of any changes.
