Is there a moderation system?

Hersheen

Now I did just join chess, and I'm wondering. Is there a moderation system? Like can you get banned for swearing or cheating? Now, I won't do any of that, I'm just curious.

Yes there is a moderation system. Yes you will be banned if you cheat or swear.

That's good to hear, thank you for your responses!

I joined 13 months ago and I have never read it.

Most of it ought to be common sense. You get out of line (cheating, persistent abuse, etc.), you get disciplined.

Yeah, that is why I didn't check it.

Don't worry. No one read the Terms of Service.

Not even the lawyers who copy-pasted it together and sold it to chess.com.

If everyone read it, we wouldn't get half the rubbish and repeated questions that we get on these forums.

Lets just accept the fact that not everyone is going to read the TOS.  But to not even search to see if a question has been asked...or check Help and Support...or FAQ?  Thats nothing but lazy.
