Statement of Purpose:
The ADC Project offers a public
forum of fellowship for all who choose to visit, post, or browse, with a Guestbook,
Message Board and other features to
provide for inquiry and discussion of After-Death Communications (ADCs), related spiritual
topics and experiences, inspirational material and teachings, as well as bereavement
support. ADC respects all religions, is non-denominational and non-sectarian, and welcomes
divergent points of view, as long as they are offered with respect for all
parties concerned. Please remember that an ADC is a direct and spontaneous
communication from a deceased loved one, a family member or friend, known to you
before they died, without the use of a psychic, medium, ritual, or device.
ADC subscribes to the ethic of 'principles before
personalities.' The intention of the ADC web site is to offer an atmosphere of support for all
guests and staff, in a spirit of mutual respect, appropriate adult decorum, with
safety and goodwill for all concerned. Everyone is welcomed in our discussion forums and
encouraged to share personal stories, exchange ideas, and discuss viewpoints and
principles. However, as adults, we can disagree without also being disagreeable.
Therefore, personal attacks will not be tolerated, whether towards a fellow guest
or staff member or another person not present, such as a public figure, and will
be promptly deleted by our Webmaster. We also expect that you will refrain from sexually
explicit discussion or similar material, for the security and comfort of our visitors and

Advertising/Solicitation at ADC:

not infringe on anyone's personal privacy. However, advertising or solicitation that
implies and/or encourages the offering of professional services, the exchange of money,
fees, or donations for access to or use of services and products may not
be posted in the ADC forums, unless prior written permission is
secured from the ADC Webmaster.
Mediums & Mediumship Readings
ADC experiences do not include the use of
mediums, since ADCs are always direct and spontaneous. Therefore, we
request that guests refrain from posting mediumship messages, including
questions, requests, answers, readings, transcripts, reviews, endorsements,
advertisements, announcements, events, as well as general and/or specific
mediumship information. We ask those primarily interested in mediumship
topics to use another site, since this site is dedicated to ADCs.
