We do not allow bashing of other members. This has always been our number one rule, and the thing that has made us so different from any other board, past or present. It is counter-productive, and accomplishes nothing. This is a ban-able offense, and not allowed.
Can you still give another member a hard time, or criticize his or her post? Yes, as long as it doesn't cross the line, and become a personal attack. The Mods will decide on a case to case basis, and either issue a warning, or take other action depending on the situation.

While we encourage posts on just about any topic, and provide forums for just about any subject, we can not allow any member to post any personal information about other members, O&A and their staff, show guests, enemies of the show, WHOIS info or the board itself. This would include phone numbers, addresses, IM screen-names or any other information that might jeopardize someone’s privacy. This is not permitted, and the post will be edited.

In cases where this info may be warranted,pPlease post the LINK to the page with the info. Do NOT copy and paste the Info on wackbag
Post whoring is replying to posts with one word or a few words just to get your post count up, this is not permitted. If you do this on regular basis.. Your post count will be decreased substantially. Any "post whore" type posts will be deleted. Continued "post whoring" will get you banned.

There are a few words here that have been censored, they are censored for a reason. You could say fuck, cunt, shit etc all you want, that’s not what it’s about.
When you try to post a censored word it will appear in the post as: ****.
Trying to get aroud the censored word by adding spaces, slashes etc will get you banned.
Anything censored here is to keep the board out of trouble with the show, certain spam words or for other reasons the staff has chosen.
In a few cases, it is to to keep Google (and other search engines) from indexing these words that will come up in a search, and then get us filtered from even more corporate servers. That leaves certain people with no access to wackbag at work.
Please do not ask on the board why a certain word is censored, this may give troublemakers the idea of posting the subject matter that got the word censored in the first place. Send me or any of the Moderators a PM if you need to know and we will let you know why it is censored. DO NOT ask on the board.
I know rules suck, but because of our rules, we have been here over 10 years, making us the oldest and longest running O&A fan message board. We intend on being here forever!.
Thanks for your cooperation!
Signature Pictures can not be larger than 500 pixels by 150 pixels in size. What this means is, your sig pic can be 200x300, 300x200, or something along those lines. If your sig pic is 400x450, it's way too big. Additionally, multiple sig pics must also not exceed the total size listed above. For example, if you have 2 or more sig pics, the total size can not exceed 500px by 150px.
In addition, please limit the physical size of any picture / animated picture to no more than 350k.
If your sig pic is too big, please reduce it in size. A moderator may edit it out of your signature and remind you to reduce it we find one that is too large.

Yes Opie & Anthony are considered “shock jocks”. That does not condone offensive behavior on your part. They are radio professionals, and know when to back off. If you’re behavior is deemed out of control, it will be dealt with swiftly.
That’s really it. We strive to provide a place for O&A fans to get together, and post their opinions, recollections, or anything else that comes to mind. We welcome all points of view, and always have from the beginning. We just ask that you follow these few simple rules. Thank you for registering here, and we hope you enjoy yourself!
