Standing against big government and for the people!
Every member is required to consent to a "No Tolerance" policy which states:
I affirm that Patriot Action Network (formerly ResistNet) is for principled, patriotic activism opposing the leftist ideology and agenda and is not a forum for personal attacks, lewd or profane language, or militancy (inciting violence) against Barack Obama, members of congress, members of this forum, or others.
Inciting violence, call to arms, flame baiting, and trolling are reason for denial of membership and or banishment from the site. Furthermore, this is a private forum and the owners of this site set the policies and have moderators and admins to enforce said policies. As such, I accept Patriot Action Networks (ResistNet's) strict No Tolerance policy and will not make inappropriate postings. I understand that such postings will be removed and members responsible will be banned without further notice. In addition, I will report such postings to the site administrators.

15. Copyright Infringement/Digital Millennium Copyright Act Compliance
It is Ning's policy to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). For more information, please go to Ning's DMCA Notification Guidelines. Ning may remove any allegedly infringing Network Code or Content without any liability to you.
Ning will promptly terminate without notice any Member's (including, for clarity, Network Member's or Network Creator's) access to the Ning Platform, including access to any Social Network, in appropriate circumstances where the Member is a "repeat infringer" of copyrights.
Generally, Ning will consider a Member a repeat infringer if it has received more than two third-party notices of alleged infringement concerning Content or Network Code posted by that Member anywhere on the Ning Platform. Ning, however, reserves the right to identify and
terminate Members under any circumstances it deems appropriate, including after only a single instance of allegedly infringing behavior by that Member. Additionally, if a Network Creator continues to allow its Network Member's to post Content that is subject to notices of
alleged copyright infringement, the Network may (at Ning's sole discretion) be disabled.
A. Patriot Action Network, Grassfire Nation reserves the right to suspend any users account if they violate any of our guidelines. If a user violates any of the above guidelines, that user can be banned permanently or have their account banned temporarily, depending on the offense. These suspensions are appeal-able, but in general, if a user has received continuous warnings it's unlikely for there to be a reversal of the suspension since we will have already exhibited a lenient attitude prior to the suspension. We reserve the right to delete any content we believe violates any of our terms without notice to the member.
B. We want you to have fun, but use of this forum is a privilege not a right! We are a private forum and private organization. Although we open our site to the public, it is privately held. We reserve the right to operate the site in whatever method or policies we deem responsible and we reserve the right to deny membership or banishment at any time.. The 1st amendment guarantees the right to speak out to your government but it does not allow you the freedom to usurp our 5th amendment rights as private property owners.
Failure to comply with any of the above guidelines may trigger one or more of the following responses by the Moderators:
1. Your message may be edited, closed or deleted.
2. You could possibly receive a written warning from a Moderator not to do it again.
3. If you do not receive a written warning and notice that a message that you made was edited, closed, or deleted without written warning from a Moderator, this should make you aware that your post was inappropriate and the edit, closing or deletion of the message should be warning enough.
You should not start a new thread concerning the same topic as this may lead to you being banned from the forum. Please do not expect the Moderators to give you a warning every time you do not follow the guidelines that are listed here. It is your responsibility to know these guidelines.
