Blog and forum posts must be in accordance with the following:
Avoid copy and pastes in message body of forums and blogs.
Do not post up large parts of cut and paste text,
Do make things easier for others by summarizing the article and including a link to the unabridged version.
What is a long piece of text? Think - would anyone be prepared to sit and read it in the context of a discussion forum?
Kindly note that there are other places on the net in which one can post whatever they wish without limit, but not here.
No, you may not post your e-mail address on the blogs:
By adding your e-mail address and/ or other addresses where you can be contacted , you will find yourself blocked from posting on the site.
Posts that do not adhere to the guidelines may be removed without explanation and site membership may be revoked.

A: You can read messages in one of three cases:
a. You are a paying member.
b. The person who sent you the message is a paying member.
c. You have one point to read a message.
Q: How long are messages saved for?
A: Messages will be saved in the inbox for 4 months.
Q: What is Report Abuse button?
A: All public Dating4Disabled correspondence is monitored, and member profiles are scanned for fraudulent information. At the same time, it is possible for abuse to occur in personal correspondence. Therefore, we have developed an abuse report system by which we identify fraudulent profiles. A Report Abuse button is located at the top of every profile, and we ask our members to please report any suspicious members, messages or postings to Dating4Disabled immediately. This will ensure your safety and the safety of other members.
Q: Is it ok to add my e-mail address, and/or contact information to my profile/ blog/ blog comments or forum?
A: No, by doing so, you will be in violation of site rules and will find yourself blocked.
Q: How to get UN-blocked?
A: If you have violated site rules by including contact details on your profile, to get unblocked, you'll need to become a paying member.
To access Paypal, go to the 'Donate' button on site and from there, you can take out a site subscription. Example, one month subscription 19.90 US Dollars.
Q: I have sent in an abuse report about someone who has a paid subscription. How long will it take for my abuse report to be acted upon?
A. The site administrator (AdminD4D) does not have the authority to remove members with paid subscriptions (only the office can do so). As this is an additional step, it may take more than a day or two until the office replies.
In the meanwhile, if you suspect that the person is a scammer, remember to follow safety guidelines.
Q: I didn't use me 1 free point and it disappeared during the month, what happened?
A: During the month your free point can disappear, that is why it is important to take advantage of your FREE points as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to manually give you another free point, and you will have to wait for the next month or purchase a subscription.
Q: I have received email notification that tells me that I have a new message in the site, but when I log in I found that my inbox is empty. What happened to my message?
A: This might happen when you receive messages from a fraud user (scammer), that the site's admin have already deleted. When we remove someone from the site, all their messages are also deleted, that's why you no longer see that message (but you still get the mail notification).
