just a quick repost of the rules please review them when you get a chance....
THE I LOVE KRATOM FORUM RULES
This forum is for topics related to Kratom, and the people who are interested in Kratom. If your topic doesn't fit into an existing category, please drop us a line and we'll create one if warranted.
This Forum requires that you must be 18 years of age or older. Accounts will be disabled for anyone under the age of 18 (not legally adult). At the I Love Kratom Forum we encourage a responsible approach to Kratom and do not promote the use of Kratom by anyone under the age of 18.
Please be respectful of others. Ideal posts should be informative and friendly. We will not allow any self promoting under false pretenses, rude or offensive behavior, bullying, or reverse propaganda. If caught doing any of these things, you will be banned from the Forum. If you have negative posts regarding vendors, there is an area dedicated to Vendor Ratings. When posting reviews, good or bad, you must post who you are. We do not allow for anonymous postings regarding the review of a product or company. The point of posting these reviews is to improve the products and services that Vendors provide as well to provide accurate details for those who are in search of Kratom or information about Kratom.
If you are a Vendor or represent a Kratom source, please follow the rules and use our Forum responsibly. Do not create an account to disguise yourself as a Kratom enthusiast to slander or self promote. It only wastes our time, our member’s time and yours as well. There are plenty of other Kratom Forums that pull that nonsense and you might be a better fit there. You will be banned if caught conducting yourself in this fashion. If you are an approved vendor and wish to promote your business or make an announcement, please post in the proper area of the Forum. If you are a Vendor and not yet approved, you may post as well but it must be in the proper section. In either case, spamming will not be tolerated. Do it right the first time and you'll be able to take advantage of what we offer. Approved Vendors will have a dedicated posting area found at “Approved Vendors”. In other sections, your posts should be non-promotional, and made only to provide informative knowledge about Kratom in general, or to reply to specific questions asked by our members. Please do not post negative comments about your competitors! It's not a good business practice and ultimately makes you look bad. Please contact the Admin before promoting and refer to the “Instructions for Vendors” sections. Anyone promoting without permission or spamming the forum will be permanently banned without warning. Please refer to the Vendor Instructions.
The I Love Kratom Forum is intended to discuss the legal and safe use of Kratom. Kratom is a substance that can be - and is being - used safely, responsibly and legally. Please read our “Kratom Etiquette” section for more details and verbiage do's and don'ts. DO NOT post anything that could be construed as an admission of criminal activity, or that could be construed as evidence of intent to commit any criminal action in the future, or that encourages criminal activity.
Kratom is Legal and we would like to keep it that way so please do your part. Please use Kratom responsibly and in moderation. Do not give Kratom to minors, or irresponsible people. Please avoid posting negative Kratom propaganda and do your best to post accurate information when educating others. A good practice is to verify your sources of information as well as doing so by more than one source. Links are allowed when referring to legitimate legal documentation or news. Do not post random, unsubstantiated links or news from other Kratom Forums. Be respectable members of this Kratom Forum and your community. Lead by example, think about your actions and conduct yourself responsibly.
To ensure we maintain the integrity of our site, the way in which this information is provided must fall within the guidelines outlined below. Content that does not fall within these guidelines will be immediately removed and users providing this content may be permanently removed and/or blocked from the site.
Please do not post threats, lewdness, hate speech, displays of bigotry or any other content that could be construed as harassment.
Forums should not be used for promotional content.
Contributions should be relevant and appropriate to the area it is posted in.
Please do not provide other people's private information. Posting other people’s full names, addresses and phone numbers is unacceptable.
Please do not plagiarize or steal content from other sites or users. Creativity should be your own and not obtained via a third party.

#1 Word Choice: When describing Kratom we want to be sure that it is being portrayed in the correct light. It would be inappropriate to compare Kratom to any type of illicit drug or “high”. Kratom is a medical herb and it is a violation of our rules to discuss Kratom irresponsibly. Kratom should be described in a truthful manner and regarded in positive way.
Disclaimer: Many of the herb, supplement and product statements posted on this website have not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration. This website, forum and Kratom is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Consult your healthcare professional prior to use if you have or suspect a medical condition. If you are under medical supervision, are using anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, diabetes medications, narcotics, blood pressure medication, sedatives, tranquilizers or asthma medication, seek the advice of your healthcare professional prior to use. Do not use if you are pregnant, lactating or under the age of 18 years. Do not take when operating machinery or driving. Keep out of reach of children.
The information provided on this site is intended for your general knowledge only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions. Please, consult your physician. The I Love Kratom Forum and staff are not licensed medical professionals and cannot be held responsible for poor decision making on your part.
#2 Discussion Topics: Though Kratom has been referred to in certain drug related forums we would appreciate refrain from the discussion of any current illicit drug use you may be involved with. We seek to protect not only the integrity of the forum but of our members seeing as we are not a “drug” forum but dedicated to the topic of Kratom.
#3 Politics and Religion: The I Love Kratom Forum is politically and religiously neutral. There should be no promotion or debate of any theological or political ideology. We want to prevent any drama or discrimination that could occur. I Love Kratom Forum embody a familial atmosphere with us there is no "right" or "wrong" in political/religious opinions. It is OK to discuss any factual information but it is important to separate fact from opinion. You may also feel free to share or discuss any information about laws and current events; it is NOT OK to debate the validity of other individuals’ beliefs.
#4 Social Networks/YouTube: We simple would like to warn our members of the presentation of Kratom on other websites other than ilovekratom.com. Some posts and videos portray Kratom in a way that is comparable to illicit substances. If Kratom is misused or misrepresented there is potential for it to be banned by lawmakers who are not seeing it form its true nature. We ask that you make an effort to represent Kratom responsibly in all cases and on any social networks that you frequent.
#5 Moderation (editing): If any member makes a post that needs to be moderated for whatever reason, the ILK Administrators WILL moderate the post, and WILL inform the member why.... We do not wish to edit posts, which is why we advise that the forum rules be followed.
#6 “Plugs”: Most forums do not allow "plugs" for other forums discussed at all. We also do not want any on this Forum. Discussion of Vendors and Product is a definite OK, but be sure not to SPAM. If you wish to promote another forum here, please message one of our Moderators or Administrators for permission PRIOR to posting anything. If you do not, your post will likely be deleted until permission is granted.
#7 Solicitation/Spamming: If you are not an approved vendor, solicitation via forum post or message will be cause for expulsion. We are in the process of creating our Vendor section for our vendors to use. If there happens to be a non-kratom related site that members would like to share we encourage you to message and Administrator for approval.
#8 Multiple Aliases: Members with multiple aliases will be expelled without notice. I for some reason you were to forget your password and felt that you needed to create a second account, please contact an admin to inform them of the issue so it may be resolved. We will delete the account that is not being used. If a banned member attempts to re-register with a different alias, the above rule will automatically come in to play and their account will banned.
#9 Bullying/Flaming: There will be NO FLAMING or Bullying of other members. Again the ILK Forum is a place for Kratom fans and Vendors to discuss their love for this amazing product not a place for harassment. We want ILK to be a happy Kratom community.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask an ILK staff member for clarification!
*We do encourage members to inform us of any posts that may go against the rules. We are not always able to view every post and would like to make sure everything is fair and taken care of!
Thanks for everyone's cooperation! Be sure to invite your friends. The more the merrier!
Updated March, 18 2014. All Rules subject to change.
