Hello Everyone,

However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages.

Hi Members,
Continuing on...

The TWO RULES we expect all members to abide by while participating here are:

1) TREAT EVERYONE WITH RESPECT.

2) IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY ABOUT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING, DON'T SAY IT.  PLEASE KEEP IT TO YOURSELF.

If these two rules are violated, your thread/post will be closed, edited, or deleted. If a member in question disregards these rules repeatedly, he/she will be banned.

Let me state this from the onset, this message board IS NOT based on democracy and unrestricted free speech/expression. It IS a benevolent sovereignty established and maintained by myself and my fellow administrator.

We encourage constructive discussion but demand civility amongst members in the process. You are welcome to express supportive and/or diverging thoughts and viewpoints on impersonal subject matters--e.g. systems, strategies, tactics, techniques, training methods, happenings, etc. What we DON'T WANT and WON'T TOLERATE are personal attacks and name calling along with political, religious, and/or racial slanders/debates.

Our hope for this message board is for it to be a place where all members feel welcome to learn, share, and express themselves without fear of malicious reprisals and ridicule. Along these lines, we want this place to be a positive and synergistic one that is worthwhile to all to spend time on.

We don't want our board to be one of "drama," riddled with personal conflicts and hostile feelings.

We are going to do our best to ensure this site is always a "good" one to spend time on.

Once again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Best Regards,
Lito

Hi Members,
One more post concerning rules...

Upon viewing, we will edit or delete names, avatars, images, words, comments, posts, topics, threads that we deem inappropriate and/or not substantive. In the process, we will warn, temporarily ban, or permanently ban the offending member depending on the offense(s) committed. Heed this warning as is because when any of us take action, we may or may not give you a private or public notification/explanation other than what I've posted here due to time and/or inclination factors. Some of you may deem what we do and how we govern this board as subjective, biased, and unfair. At times, that may or may not be the case. Nonetheless, this is our message board to do as we choose. When we do take action, it is for the overall good of the board.

This message board is not an "equal rights," "free-for-all," do-whatever-you-want" democracy. It is a place governed by benign sovereignty, created and maintained by myself and a good friend. We exercise full power and authority over it. We started this site as a labor of love and sincerely want this place to be a positive, constructive, mature venue where we can all learn, grow, and interact as adults with the corollary benefit of fostering friendships in the process.

We hope that the ethos we've established will inspire good people to join, good members to stay & participate, and discourage/drive away trolls from our site.

There is no debate or discussion on this. If you violate our ethos, we will take decisive action.

Lastly, thank you again for your understanding and cooperation. Over and out...

Best Regards,
Lito
