This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion forum with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Be yourself: The best conversations happen when people are being authentic and true to themselves.

Add to the conversation: Whether you agree, disagree or have a completely different perspective, we want to hear your views and your reasons behind them

Respect each other: Our opinions may differ but it’s important that we treat each other with civility at all times, so we can engage in productive conversation.

Respect the forum: Avoid posting anything obscene or explicit. Let’s keep the forum tidy too - no crossposting or veering off-topic.

If you see a problem, flag it: Let’s work together to uphold the values of our forum.
