  1. Users get banned for vulgar/inappropriate language/remarks, spamming, posting way too many questions with no attempt at answering (we call them answer moochers), and such things. The regular tutors on this site are allowed to ban. Often, but not always, we warn before banning. Thank you for using Jiskha. We want to help but this is not a site for you to get "free" answers; i.e., we want you to HELP you do the work.

  2. Students who post their questions AND let the tutors know what they think the answers are and/or let tutors know where they get stuck (especially math and science questions), will be fine.

    People 1) who post using filthy language, 2) who try to pose as one of our tutors, 3) who spam these message boards with advertising or personal information, 4) who come here to cheat (ask for all the answers and/or hand out all the answers to anything), 5) who are consistently rude to tutors and others -- those are the ones most likely to be banned, especially if they keep it up in post after post.

    Just remember that "help" doesn't mean "do it for me" (=cheating) and you'll be fine.

  3. People get banned for doing bad stuff like insulting people or asking for us to do homework or tests instead of trying themselves and showing us what they did and where they got stuck. Just remember we are teachers, not test taker slaves. We are happy to help or to check work, but not to do the work for students.

  5. If you post a question and state that you want an explanation, not the answer, you'll be fine.

    Ms. Sue is one of our tutors, yes. She's usually online from about noon Eastern time until 10 or 11 pm. And she is one of four people who have admin tools.

    Vulgar means filthy -- bad language. Completely unacceptable.
