Wherefore, all of the registrations and content that was on that forum is gone; which means that you will need to re-register on that forum to communicate with them and to receive their forum based services.

Though we usually hold Free Conference Calls every: Monday, Wednesday & Friday morning from:
8:00 – 9:00 AM (Mountain Time); excluding emergencies and national holidays; such as, this coming Friday (November 10, 2017), Veteran's Day; therefore, there will be no Conference Call on Friday; because, the office will be closed for the national holiday.

Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Team Law’s Open Forum©. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Forum Rules

    1. When you register a username on our Open Forum System you agree to comply with the Forum’s Terms Of Use, and that which follows; which confirms that you read and agree to comply with these Board-wide Policies [Forum Rules]; honor our Copyright; acknowledge our Privacy Policy; and, follow our Forum’s Admin when Admin provides guidance, instructions and/or limitations with regard to your participation on this Forum (see: Policing). Thank you for your participation and interest in our service and in our Forum. #
    2. All rules, policies and guidelines that apply to our Open Forum also apply to our Success Network Forums, our Beneficiary Forum and the Governor’s Forum; which together comprise our “Forum System”. #
    3. The exclusive purpose of our Forum System is to eliminate e-mail to and from Team Law while providing a resource where people can learn about Team Law and our work to help the people learn how to preserve our country by learning and applying the law; accordingly, we require all posts to our Open Forum System must comply with our standards and with said purpose of our Forum System. The idea is, if people can ask us their general questions in our Open Forum, others can read their posts, learn about Team Law and our work to preserve our country; which helps us eliminate the repetitious need for others to send similar questions; thus, we can disseminate massive amounts of information without repeating ourselves much. #
    4. Only posts made in accord with Rule 3 are allowed on our Open Forum System; thus, before posting, if you have any question regarding this or any of our Forum Rules, you may post such inquiries in a private message to Admin. #
    5. Team Law cautions all of our Forum System participants with: Team Law’s published statement on Advice as posted on Team Law’s website, with the Forum Rules topic labeled Advice below and with the Website Terms of Use Agreement also posted on our main website. #
    6. Excluding only Team Law’s service providers: “Admin” and “Fulfillment”, all participants on our Open Forum System are required to be individual living people; respectively, all registered users are required to provide accurate contact information on registration and to timely maintain the accuracy of said contact information either through the User Control Panel or via private message to Admin. #
    7. Though Team Law itself has no membership, our Open Forum System registered users are hereby defined as: “Members” of the agreement (noted in paragraph "1." above) and accordingly of this Open Forum System. (hereinafter: “Members”). #
    8. Members shall not register under multiple user names. If you cannot remember your password, follow the password recovery process found on the login page. If you want to change your username, send a request for username change to Admin. If for any other reason (you cannot: login; gain user access to our Open Forum System; etc., contact Team Law’s Trustee using the information found on our Contacting Team Law page; which page also provides telephone access to Team Law. Accordingly, phone numbers should never be posted either on our open forum or in private messages. #
    9. Warning: we do not tolerate unauthorized off-site links; made either with actual links or by merely describing the same. (See: Linking Off site). #
    10. In addition to Rule 3 (above), Team Law’s Open Forum system is reserved to general inquiries meaning: inquiries applicable to others as well as to yourself; and, the term “applicable”, means the situation applies to actual circumstances and/or events; that is to say, the situation is not merely a rhetorical question or a hypothetical situation—Team Law does not waste time reviewing rhetorical questions or hypothetical situations. While honoring Rule 3 (above), our Open Forum is reserved for posting such inquiries to Team Law regarding Team Law and its published work (so people can learn more about Team Law); respectively, our Private Beneficiary Forum is reserved to helping our beneficiaries stay on the right track as they learn how to learn the law firsthand from their own private study of the law itself (from the source); however, lengthy inquiries should not be made on the forum and should only be made by direct communication by phone using the information found on the Contacting Team Law page. By the same token, lengthy inquires should not be broken up into shorter Private messages to circumvent this rule. Therefore, if you have many questions to ask, you should call in and do a live review with our Trustee instead of sending several short private messages. #
    11. All other inquiries, including but not limited to personal matters, should be posted to Admin in a private message. #
    12. Our Open Forum and Private Message systems are reserved to simple inquiries. Typing is the slowest form of communication available to us; therefore, though it can be very helpful for our Open Forum responses where virtually anyone with internet access can view our response, it is the worst way to convey information to any individual. Thus, these rules reserve our Open Forum and Private Message systems to simple inquiries and live document reviews. Accordingly, anything needing more than a simple response from Admin should be handled via telephone as per our Contacting Team Law page. #
    13. If you have questions regarding how our open forum system works, first check out the FAQ page. #
    14. All posts should be made with a “Subject” title relevant to the sub-forum and topic of the intended post. The “Subject” must reflect the content of the post; and, must not be used as part of the content of the message contained within the post. Respectively, the “Subject” title should never be a question that is not asked in the content of the message. Before initiating a new topic, users are asked to read and/or search the forum to discover whether others have already discussed and/or answered your inquiry. Wherever possible new Topics should only be made within a topic when they fit the subject matter of the topical thread; and, where possible, avoid both duplicating topics and posting irrelevant comments within existing topics. Users consistently posting to the wrong topic and/or forum may be given a warning (see policing below). #
    15. Users should post in a way that is respectful of both the forum and all of its users. This means users should address the forum, themselves and all other users in a positive/proactive way and not in a negative or demeaning way. Grumbling about, flaming or abusing either the forum or any of its users in any way will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning; thus, if any user has anything they want to express that either does not comply with or is in contest of these rules, such posts can only be made by way of a private message to Admin. As noted in Rule 1, all users agree to follow guidelines Admin may provide within the forum as those guidelines may apply to any policies regarding the use of our forum. #
    16. It is assumed that all Members are thankful for the content we provide; accordingly, we ask Members to refrain from posting thank you messages and/or acknowledgment of your acceptance of what we present (including statements about (not inquiries into) how you intend to apply what we provided, apologies, etc.). If you desire to thank someone for a response when you are posting a further inquiry that is acceptable only if the thanksgiving is posted in brief. By the same token, users should not post messages on the forums to complain; any and all complaints should be made by way of a private message to Admin. Further, our Forum and its Private Message system are not to be used as a “Blog spot”; where people post casual comments not made in compliance with Rule 3; respectively if a post does not need a reply, it should not be posted either on our forum or in our Private Message system. This rule was made to conserve both database space and time. Because Admin responds to every message that is sent, the time necessary for such responses can add up to a critical mass, thus, though we appreciate your thankfulness, we ask that all users refrain from posting such messages. #
    17. Users are asked to not act as “backseat moderators”. If users note an issue which contravenes something in this policy document they are welcome to bring it to the attention of Admin by way of a private message. Only do this if a moderator has not replied within 6 hours. Do not respond to such topics yourself. Members who consistently "act" as moderators may be warned. #
    18. Members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience interested in learning more about Team Law and our services. Posting comments that are not in keeping with Team Law’s purpose and respectively with our purpose for our Open Forum System (see Rule 10); accordingly, large quotes from other resources (especially those that have nothing to do with Team Law) should not be posted in our Open Forum System without approval from Admin; and, arguing does not comply with this rule and is not allowed on this forum. Any disagreements with Admin or any Forum Moderator must be expressed in a Private Message to Admin. Also, posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to cancellation of your registration and banning access to your IP address. #
    19. Members are asked to respect the copyright of other users, sites, media, etc. Accordingly, Members shall use complete and accurate citations whenever quoting from any other source. Users linking to or asking for information on third party systems, etc. or re-printing material without permission will receive a warning and their post will be removed. #
    20. Members should respect the bandwidth of other users and sites. The use of in-line image tags:

      Code: Select all

      [IMG][/IMG]
      to point to images, data, etc. stored on third-party systems for which the user has not received both Admin’s and said third-party site owner’s permission to link to will be removed and the violator may be banned. #
    21. Members should post in a way which is consistent with “normal writing”. That is, users should do their best to use proper English grammar, spelling and style to allow common understanding (we realize some people have difficulty with such usage and suggest composing posts using word processor software (like: Microsoft’s WORD; or, Apache’s Open Office) that has spelling and grammar checking functionality; also, users should not post excessive numbers of emoticons, large, small or colored text, etc. Similarly users should not SHOUT (using all capital letters to punctuate words or phrases) or use excessive punctuation (e.g. ! and ?) in topic titles or posts. Users consistently abusing this will be warned. #
    22. Red colored text is reserved to Admin for editing; therefore, all members agree not to use red text. Violators will be warned only once. #
    23. Members should use an appropriate, descriptive title when posting a new topic. Examples of bad titles include; “Help me!”, “I'm stuck!”, “I've got an error!”, etc. Examples of good titles include; “Does having a State or Federal job pose any problems?”, “A Jurisdictional Question?”, etc.; further, though titles introduce the topic of the post, they are never considered as part of the post itself; respectively, posts that use the title as if it were part of the message itself will be deleted and refered back to the user for revision. #
    24. SPAM is not tolerated here under any circumstance. This includes any and all offers of services of any kind (charged or free), solicitation of any kind, etc. Recruiting of any sort is not permitted either. SPAM is defined as unsolicited e-mail and includes non-compliant posts [that is posts that are not compliant with Rule 3], made either in the forum or by private messages, posted to users of our forum that did not solicit the post; Spam also includes all e-mail sent to Team Law that was not self-generated by our robotic registration and notification system (see E-mail). Users posting spam will be warned and their post removed. See specific item on spam and 3rd party linking for more information. #
    25. The Open Forum System cannot be used for third party solicitation of any kind; including but not limited to: asking Admin or forum members for support with matters that are not supported by Team Law; asking for referrals of any kind; and/or, asking for Team Law beneficiary nominations. #
    26. Members must not disclose to any 3rd party, their username and password; such information must remain private. Disclosure of such information to a third party constitutes at least cause for immediate cancellation of all Open Forum system privileges. If any Team Law Beneficiary commits this violation their Beneficiary Endowment will be cancelled for violating their Team Law Beneficiary Agreement. #
    27. Team Law reserves the right to edit any part of or remove any post at any time. The determination of what is construed as inappropriate, indecent, vulgar, spam, etc. as noted in these points is up to Team Law’s Admin and our forum moderators and not to any other forum users. #
    28. The above forum rules, where applicable, also apply to private messaging. Abuse of the private messaging system may lead to warnings (as above) and/or the revocation of private messaging and or other Open Forum System privileges. #
    29. One of the main principles Team Law observes is: “It is right and proper for people to obey, honor and sustain the law; further, it is impossible to either obey, or honor, or sustain the law if you do not know what the law is.” We further maintain that: “It is virtually impossible to know the law without firsthand study of the law with its history, language and environment.” Thus, no one should ever take any other person’s word on what the law is, or on what its meaning, application or intent are; rather, we must all do our own firsthand research from the original sources of the law itself and from its history. Even then, if a party has a complaint with any law, such a complaint does not excuse that party from complying with the law. If any of us has such a complaint we must resolve to address the same through the proper legal and lawful channels of Administrative, Legislative and Judicial Procedures to exact the necessary changes; and, until such changes are made, to the extent it is possible, remain compliant with the laws as they have been established until they are changed accordingly. With that in mind, any posts that admonish law breaking are subject to deletion and the posting member will be respectfully warned. #
    30. Respectively, Team Law acknowledges it is unwise to believe anything we or anyone else tells you about anything, especially about the law, its history, meaning, application or intent, unless you have first done your own firsthand research to discover the truth for yourself; which you establish by two or three firsthand evidentiary witnesses (that means from the law itself and from its history and not from third-party resources). Accordingly, all users agree to do their own research to verify the relevant laws before they take any other action in regard to anything they learn from our forum and or from any website linked to Team Law’s Open Forum System. #
    31. Team Law’s Charter limits our full support to Team Law beneficiaries only and allows us to support all other people with their general questions as they learn how to learn the law only until those people have had sufficient opportunity to discover that Team Law is worthy of their support; at which time, we are limited from providing them any further support unless those people are Team Law beneficiaries; and, though that can take place sooner (as when people purchase Team Law’s Land Patent Sandwich service, directly express Team Law’s value or their interest in becoming a beneficiary, etc.), it has been deemed that by the time any Registered User has posted five posts and/or inquiries to Team Law they have had sufficient experience with Team Law (and its services) to have made that discovery; therefore, the Registered User graphic Rank Icon was setup to turn on when a registered user makes five posts; and, from the time said Icon turns on until it changes to "Beneficiary", the Registered user shall only be allowed to make inquiries related to the process of their becoming a Team Law Beneficiary. Arguing or contesting with this or any Charter limitation is grounds for a Warning. Attempting to circumvent this limitation is Cause for immediate termination of all access to, and/or relationship with, Team Law. #
  2. Signatures

    1. Signatures may contain up to five lines (one line being that displayed on a browser opened to 800px width) of text (of small or normal size) and/or one image, valid combinations include; a single image of no more than 60px high, 468px wide and 6kB (6000 Bytes) in size. Signatures containing an image this large may also include one line of small size text. Signatures containing an image of 30px high may include up to three lines of small size text or two lines of normal size text. Images of 15px height or less may allow up to three lines of normal size text or four lines of small size text. Animated images are not allowed. Also, website links, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers and/or other contact information are not allowed in signatures and should not be placed anywhere in any posts or private messages posted on our forum system (unless previously approved by Admin in writing). #
    2. Text sizes should be between 9pt and 12pt (small and normal). Text in signatures is subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, emoticons, and so forth. #
    3. Links in signatures are strictly forbidden! #
    4. Users abusing these rules will be warned or banned. #
  3. Avatars

    1. Users are permitted to utilize a gallery avatar or to link to one of their own (subject to previous points on misuse of bandwidth). User defined avatars are to be no larger than 90 pixels square, contain no animation, contain no image which attempts to portray the user as having an official status here (e.g. mimicking ranks or copying avatars of team members), may not exceed 6kB (6000 Bytes) in file size and have a consistently high availability (i.e. links to images on slow servers or those prone to failure may be removed). #
    2. Avatars are subject to the same conditions as posts with respect decency, and so forth. #
    3. Users abusing these rules will be warned and/or may lose their avatar privileges. #
  4. E-mail

    1. Team Law uses e-mail only for its automated registration and outbound notification system. #
    2. Thus, you should you never solicit e-mail from Team Law by posting your URL or e-mail address anywhere on our Open Forum System other than where the registration system requires it; and, #
    3. Thus, should you receive an e-mail notification from Team Law it will have been generated by that automated system; and, #
    4. You should never respond to any such e-mail notification except in the exact manner that such a message instructs you so to do. #
    5. Sending Team Law any other e-mail for any other reason constitutes spam and constitutes cause for a warning and/or termination at least of electronic access to Team Law. #
    6. Using e-mail to attempt to contact Team Law for any other reason constitutes Spam and is cause for issuance of a warning. #
  5. Show Off

    1. Team Law provides no forum for users to promote their own, or others, assistance, sites or services; #
    2. Thus, the posting of such sites, and/or offers of assistance or services on or through our forum’s resources constitutes spam and may lead to a warning or termination of access to Team Law. #
  6. Policing

    1. Team Law operates a no third strike policy; which means, (except as noted above) users will be warned of any violation of our policies once for any and or all offences—that is strike one. If the need for a second warning arises, that is strike two and you may loose all Open Forum system privileges and or be banned; there are no third strikes. #
    2. Arguing with team members after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning and or loss of privileges. #
    3. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact Admin by phone for a live review, e.g. if warned by a moderator you may contact Admin. If Admin feels you were treated harshly, Admin may remove a warning. All of Admin’s decisions are final. #
    4. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new e-mail account of evade an e-mail ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user. #
    5. If a user ever contacts anyone from our Open Forum system personally (via any method) and posts insulting, indecent or vulgar material, such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban. #
    6. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While Team Law may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence. #
  7. Advice

    1. Team Law has published it opinion of giving and/or receiving advice on Team Law’s main website at: Team Law on Advice, which puplication is included here, by this reference, as if it was fully reproduced here; #
    2. Respectively, if anyone has come to Team Law or this forum seeking advice they would be wise to read said publication and then realize that if they still want advice they will not find it here (for that would be contrary to our purpose). #
    3. Though we can help you learn how to learn the law, we will not and cannot do your work for you; and, #
    4. No matter where you go, you will still be required to know the law firsthand—which requirement can only be filled by your own experience studying and learning the law from its source. #
    5. You may also find Team Law’s overall Website Terms of Use Agreement helpful; which terms are posted on our main website. #
