If you believe there has been a mistake, address your concern to the forum ownership via this form where it will be reviewed.

If a banned member continuously attempts to harass the board and/or its members the personal information of that banned person will be forwarded to the responsible authorities and the offender will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Banning is based on the severity of the infraction or sum of the multiple offenses and is solely in our discretion.

4. Historical Post Editing

ABestWeb policy is to not edit historical posts in any manner, or upon request. If ABestWeb rank’s well for specific keywords or domain(s) it is because a search engine thinks it is relevant.

5. Recruiting

Any recruiting other than by Affiliate managers for their paid and listed [on ABestWeb] programs and/or any member who attempts to recruit membership for another board will result in a ban.
