Address all forum members with the utmost respect at all times. If you do not agree with a fellow member, be courteous in your response. Thomas Jefferson said it best: “When I hear another express an opinion which is not mine, I say to myself, he has a right to his opinion, as I to mine”.
Because of the limitations of text based communication, the expression of intent can be tricky. One of the most common triggers of rule violations is the misinterpretation of intent behind a post. Use smileys often, and remember, it never hurts to begin a response with “In my opinion”…
If you do not address everyone on these forums with respect, be prepared to lose your access to these forums.
If you have a disagreement with a moderator (If your thread gets deleted, if you get a warning, etc.), DO NOT post your complaint publicly on the forums. If you have a problem with a moderator’s actions, PM or email the moderator privately. If the moderator’s response is unsatisfactory, email the administrator or contact your local VMC Regional Representative.
