Harassing another user is prohibited. However, the nature of harassment is very fluid and it is up to the moderators' discretion on whether or not a remark is considered harassment. Flames, rants, and insults will generally not be considered harassment. If another user is following you around on the forums and/or constantly and consistently insulting you, this may be considered harassment.

Keep in mind that moderators have the final say on the distinction between harassment and normal sass.

Creating new threads or replying to existing threads for the sole purpose of causing disturbances on the forums is also prohibited.
