The following rules apply to all discussion forum submissions:

No obscene, profane, indecent, or offensive language.  

No material that is defamatory, abusive, libelous, harmful, or hateful to any group or individual. 

  No personal attacks.  Disagreeing with another person's idea or that person disagreeing with your idea does not justify your attacking that person. 

No racial, ethnic, or sexual slurs. Threatening or belligerent messages, or any similarly unacceptable material is strictly prohibited. 

No uploading, posting, emailing or otherwise transmitting any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "spam," "junk mail," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of nuisance solicitation.

No messages with all uppercase letters. Many people perceive such postings as expressions of anger.  Postings must be in plain font using upper and lower case letters. 

No messages exceeding 350 words. Overly long postings hog screen space and inhibit discussion. If you have a story of some length to share, append a Word or WordPerfect document with the full text. 

No uploading, posting, emailing or otherwise transmitting of any material of any nature, including text, graphics, video, programs or audio that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or that otherwise violates any local, state, national or international law or regulation.
