Borderline Bashing is a grey area, members who have negative opinions about a stock and go onto a thread to let their opinions be known, are asked to do so in a diplomatic and mature manner. There are times when this is acceptable, when a member has valuable information to contribute and is trying to help out their fellow member. To go beyond this, does not help the thread and many times creates turmoil.

Banning - HSM may terminate your membership if you breach or violate the rules or TOS. If the situation warrants a time out, a temporary ban will be imposed ranging from 1 to 365 days depending on the offense.
