Rule No. 1
No Member is allowed to retire living beings, other anipals or real, live toys that deserve our love and respect. At this time, Members are allowed to retire official dog toys, shoes, slippers, pillows, garbage pails and other assorted inanimate objects.
Rule No. 2
Any Member caught injuring living beings, other anipals or real, live toys that deserve our love and respect will be sanctioned immediately.
Translation = we do not eat our friends. We know who are friends are and we have no intention of hurting them in any manner. A security force has been trained to deal with offenders. Hopefully, they will never be needed.
Rule No. 3
Sanctioning of a Member in violation of Rule No. 1 can include termination of membership, suspension of membership for specific time periods and/or removal from the Members page.
Rule No. 4
A Member will be deemed to be sanctioned if Miss PishPosh and at least one current, active Member determine that their actions warrant sanctioning. Members may post comments on the blog regarding activities that they deem to be sanctionable.
Rule No. 5
Reinstatement from a sanctioning will be determined on a case by case basis. A sanctioned member may request reinstatement by posting a comment on this blog requesting a review of their sanctioned status. Miss PishPosh and one other member must respond favourably to the request for sanctioning review for a sanction to be lifted.
Rule No. 6
Once a member – always a member. Unless you decide you no longer want be a member or are formally sanctioned for violation of Rule No. 1.
Rule No. 7
All members are equal – with one exception. Miss PishPosh is the ultimate arbiter and has final say in posting of activities, sanctioning, new membership, and disputes. Why? She started the gang and someone has to play the heavy…
