Here is Why Your Practice Should Be Listed on the Web's #1 Directory of Biological, Holistic, and Mercury-free Dentists!

 Posting New Threads

Members are free to post replies in any threads or create new posts in the forums. Always try to make meaningful and complete posts and try to select the appropriate forum. At times, moderators may move your post to another forum that is more suitable for the topic you have posted. Please try to use a descriptive title for your post, something like “Need Help!” is not useful and will cause many experienced members to skip your post. Please be repectful of other members who will ultimately read your posts. We don't expect perfect grammar and spelling on all posts but try to make posts using normal conversational text and not shorthands that can be difficult to understand or annoying. Use forum text controls as appropriate to emphasize points of your post but avoid using colors that are difficult to read and putting messages or message titles in ALL CAPS, which is read as 'shouting'. Although Mercury Free members receive different status titles depending on the number of posts members have, we do not encourage members to post just for the sake of posting. Doing so will result in deletion of your posts, warnings, and possibly membership suspension. Examples of meaningless posts are: • What did you have for breakfast today? • It is so hot here. Please create only one single post for your topic – do not ‘spam’ multiple forums by created multiple threads or links to posts in other sub-forums without the permission of the forum administrator. If a moderator closes a thread (for any reason), members should not create a new thread to continue the recent discussion or to get in "the final word". 

Personal Attack

While we encourage lively debates and discussions, we will not tolerate personal attacks of any kind. Any person attacking another forum member will receive a warning and may have their offensive posts removed. One more offense and the offending member will be permanently suspended from Mercury Free Any member that physically threatens another member, vendor or moderator on Mercury Free Dentists will result in an immediate automatic suspension. Repeated name calling and insults will not be tolerated. Members are certainly going to disagree from time-to-time, but the disagreement should be about the topic not the person posting. Please keep debates factual and constructive and keep in mind you can always ‘agree to disagree’ rather than enter into a heated argument.  

Response to Comments

If you have a problem with another member's comments in a posted thread, do not respond with any further comments that will aggravate the situation. Reacting to a hostile post with more hostility also puts you in jeopardy, and puts you at risk for action against your account even if it was initially another member’s fault – it takes two to argue. Members have two options of recourse: 1) Email or private message the moderators of the forum in which the offensive comment is posted, directing them to the individual and thread in which the problem occurs. Use the "Notify a Moderator" button on the bottom of the offensive post to accomplish the same thing. Moderators will look into the issues and take the appropriate actions. 2) Resolve the problem between both of you via email or Private Message (PM).

Non-work-safe Images and Profanity

Mercury Free strives to be a work-safe forum that allows our members to view topics without breaking most corporate web access rules. No nude images, near-nudity or overtly sexual content are allowed to be posted on our forum, used in signature images or avatars, or stored in our gallery. These rules apply to linked images and URLs to other sites with non-work-safe content, regardless if they are marked "NWS". These items will be removed without notice. We also ask that a certain level of decorum be observed when posting ‘gross’ pictures. If your co-worker or grandmother would be shocked if they saw what you’re posting, then don’t post it. Any profanity that cannot readily be heard on prime time network television will not be tolerated anywhere on the Mercury Free site. Members who violate the rule will be warned either in public or in private, and a second time will result in suspension. Obvious circumvention of the profanity language edits on our forum to carry the same meaning falls under this same policy. These threads or gallery pictures will have images or profanity removed and locked or deleted without notification to the member.

Group Buys

Group Buys (GB) or bulk sales are allowed ONLY in conjunction with a Mercury Free authorized sponsor. ‘Gathering interest’ posts for group buys or new products are also not allowed without the prior support of an authorized sponsor which can be coordinated directly through the sponsor or requested of moderators or the forum administrator. Linking to group buys sponsored by nonsponsors or on other forums is not allowed. Inappropriate GB posts will be promptly closed or removed without notice.

Copywrighted Materials

The inclusion of pictures within messages is allowed on this site. Referring to images that are copyrighted and protected by others is not to be included on our site without the express written permission of the owner of the copyrighted image(s). Linking to other copyrighted or otherwise unauthorized material copies is not allowed on our site without the express written permission of the owner of the copyrighted materials(s). 


Only one Mercury Free account is allowed per person. We reserve the right to delete any membership without prior warning. You agree, through the Terms of Service, that you will not use Mercury Free to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory of any kind, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, sexually oriented, racial, stereotypical, sexist remarks threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violation of any law. You agree not to use the addresses of any member on the forum for any other purpose than personal communication with that member. Mercury Free welcomes members of all sexes, races, religions, ethnicities, etc. Both new and existing members should be made to feel welcome and never persecuted. Members can have their access removed from Mercury Free either temporarily or permanently for violating forum rules or Terms of Service. Moderators generally will provide private and/or public warnings before taking this action, but should the member continue to violate forum rules access will be removed without warning or notification.


We reserve the right to edit or delete posts or messages for any or no reason whatsoever. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages, and you agree to indemnify and hold harmless, Mercury Free, and their agents with respect to any claim based upon transmission of your message(s). As a privately owned website we reserve the right to revoke your membership to the forum or disable your posting ability for any or no reason whatsoever.

Vendor Sales and Advertising

Except for Mercury Free authorized vendors, vendor sales and advertising of any kind are strictly prohibited in any posting area of Mercury Free forums. This restriction applies to sales via private message (PM), advertising links and emails in signatures and links to sales on other forums. This restriction applies to vendors offering services as well as any products. Using Mercury Free membership for product development research is also prohibited without approval of the administrator. Vendors interested in advertising on Mercury Free should contact us using the form provided on the "Contact Us" page.  All non-approved advertising threads will be deleted, moved or closed. Members who are vendors or acting on behalf of vendors who ignore these rules will also have their private messaging and / or forum access limited, or their account suspended permanently.  By clicking on the checkbox ‘I have read, and agree to abide by the Mercury Free rules’ to join Mercury Free you have formally agreed to these rules. You also agree that any disputes will be resolved in a court of law in a state selected by Mercury Free Remitting the vendor fee does not automatically grant you forum sponsorship or the right to advertise; your company application will be considered based on a number of factors including reputation, time in market, brick & mortar or web presence, interest to Mercury Free members and other factors. Your fee will not be returned if you are not approved. Vendor rules are in place for two reasons. First, these rules protect our forum members from fly-by-night vendors, rip-off artists, etc who join forums simply to post, take your money and disappear into the night. Second, approved vendors help support Club Lexus financially and they are the primary reason Mercury Free is able to stay up and running. It is fair that only they have limited access to Mercury Free’s members.


The opinions and comments made in the posts written by our members are the rights to and the responsibility of the individual member. Mercury Free assumes no responsibility for the content expressed or implied by its membership.


Mercury Free moderators are a group of volunteers to help facilitate discussion on Club Lexus and they interpret and enforce our forum rules. They should not be argued with in public when enforcing forum rules and guidelines. All members are welcome to speak with the moderators about their concerns in a polite and calm manner in private. If you have a complaint, you can contact the administrator. Ongoing public complaints about warnings and infractions you may receive from a forum moderator are not allowed and should be discussed via private message only with the moderator or administrator. Infractions and warnings can only be viewed by the individual who receives them and the moderator team. Once an issue is resolved, please learn from and move on from it. Do not smart off to moderators. They are here by choice alone, and have been bestowed the privilege of maintaining this wonderful site, and acting on direct authority from the Owner and Administrator himself to enforce the rules, regulations, etiquette, and desired environment. Harassment of moderators and administrators either on or off-site of Mercury Free may result in immediate suspension of your access to our forum. If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or issues with a moderator or a moderator decision, DO NOT create a post, please contact an administrator via PM.
