    House Rules

    The Short Version

    – post constructively
    – don’t post advertising
    – don’t abuse other users
    – don’t feed the trolls
    – use the Post Options > Report Post button to the top-right of a specific post to get the forum administrators’ attention for abusive posts, advertising etc.

    Failing to post constructively, being abusive, and posting adverts are likely to result in your account being suspended with no warning.

    The Long Version

    Gringoes.com is a free public discussion forum about Brazil, where we want forum members to feel free to post and discuss positively without threat of harassment.
